By on 11/28/2017

In collaboration with Einstein’s Heart and Vascular team and the American Heart Association, we’re sharing some of our favorite holiday-friendly recipes with a heart-healthy twist.

Looking for an easy crowd pleaser for your holiday party? Look no further. Low in sodium, these guacamole deviled eggs are going to disappear in a heartbeat.


9 Servings

  • 9 large eggs
  • 1 medium avocado (halved, pitted)
  • 2 Tbsp fat-free sour cream
  • ½ lime (juiced)
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped Roma tomato (1 to 2 Roma tomatoes)
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped scallions
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons finely chopped jalapeño
  • Dried or fresh cilantro, to garnish (optional)


  1. Hard-boiled eggs: Fill a large pot with water, add all the eggs, and bring mixture to a boil over high heat. As soon as the water begins to boil, cover with a lid, remove pot from the heat, and let eggs sit for 10 minutes. Transfer eggs to a bowl of cold water to cool.
  2. When the eggs are cool enough to handle, remove the shells. Slice each egg in half lengthwise. Remove the yolks, adding just 2 whole egg yolks into a medium bowl and discarding the remaining egg yolks. Place the egg white halves onto a platter.
  3. Guacamole: Slice the avocado in half and remove the pit. Slice or scoop out the avocado and add it to the egg yolks. Use a fork to mash the egg yolks and the avocado together. Stir in the sour cream and lime juice.
  4. Finely chop the tomato and scallions. Add both to the mashed avocado, along with pepper and (optional) jalapeno. Stir together to combine.
  5. Spoon the guacamole into each egg white half, dividing the mixture between all 18. Garnish with a sprinkle of dried or fresh chopped cilantro, if desired. Serve.
