I love deviled eggs. Seriously. They’re probably my favorite dish for holiday get togethers, and really, I could be happy just having them and dessert. These spicy avocado deviled eggs are a great twist on the traditional version, but still taste amazing.
Our version has a distinct adult flair with the addition of some unexpected spices. They’re low carb, keto friendly, and paleo approved, too!

One of the keys to making these spicy avocado deviled eggs Paleo friendly is the use of Avocado Mayo. It’s a healthier version that tastes like homemade mayonnaise, and not like the stuff you normally get on the shelf at the store. You can’t beat that.

One helpful hint. When boiling eggs, add a little white vinegar to the water. It helps to make peeling the eggs so much easier.
