Looking for a super simple appetizer? These Mexican Devilled Eggs are so easy to make and are filled with flavour. I have to admit that I've never really been a fan of devilled eggs. Basically whipped egg yolks with mayo didn't exactly call out to me. I don't like mayo in general but I knew there was a way I could change up the ingredients to make something super tasty. Plus I love eggs, (even though I'm intolerant, read below to see how I manage to continue eating eggs) so I knew that I could make devilled eggs into a great appetizer.
I'm sure you're thinking, if you're intolerant to eggs how in the world can you eat devilled eggs? Simple, I make mine with duck eggs. Some people get a little uneasy when I suggest that they try duck eggs if they react to chicken eggs, but in reality duck eggs are tastier and have even more nutrition. Eggs are a very common reaction, in fact I see it come up time and time again when I test my clients for food sensitivities. There are plenty of alternatives for eggs in baking, such as a flax or chia eggs but nothing beats the real thing. Especially in terms of the nutrients that come with a whole eggs, protein, fat, DHA, choline, the list goes on! So I highly recommend that if you are intolerant (or you're just curious) to try duck eggs. You won't be disappointed!
If can be a little tricky to source duck eggs but many farmer's markets will have options or just do a quick google search for farms in your area that you can get them from. In Ottawa I usually get mine from Quillow Farm, but Maple hill Urban Farm and Bearbrook Farm also offer them. I love to support local farms as much as possible. That said, our local Whole Foods now carries duck eggs if you can't get out to farms.
- Peel and cut eggs in half lengthways.
- Remove eggs yolks and place in a medium sized mixing bowl.
- Add avocado and mix together with a fork until well combined.
- Add lime juice, jalapeno, garlic, cilantro, salt and pepper. Continue mixing until smooth and creamy. You can also you a hand blender for this.
- Transfer mixture to an icing bag or ziplock baggie with the corner cut off and fill the egg white with the mixture. You can simply use a spoon to fill the egg whites but it's a little messy.
- Garnish with extra cilantro and bacon.
- Keep chilled until ready to serve.
