Ingredients

6 Large Boiled Eggs
1 medium, ripe avocado
1 tablespoon (15 ml) fresh lime juice (juice of ½ lime)
Freshly ground black pepper to taste
¼ teaspoon (1.25 ml) onion powder
1 clove pressed garlic
1 tablespoon (15 ml) finely chopped cilantro leaves, plus more for garnish
⅛ teaspoon (.75 ml) salt, or to taste
Smoked paprika to sprinkle over the top.

Method

Peel eggs and cut them in half lengthwise. Remove egg yolks from halved eggs and place 3 yolks in a small bowl; discard remaining yolks.

Add ripe avocado, lime juice (it will keep avocados from browning), and chopped cilantro.

Add ¼ teaspoon (1.25 ml) onion powder and about ⅛ teaspoon (.75 ml) freshly ground black pepper.

Press in 1 garlic clove and mash everything together with a potato masher or fork. Add ⅛ teaspoon (.75 ml) salt, or to taste.

Pipe the avocado mixture into the eggs with a pastry bag using a star tip or a ziploc bag for a smooth finish.
