Deviled Green Guac Eggs for St. Patrick’s Day

March 13, 2014 - Written by Diana

St. Patrick’s Day is coming up and Green is the color of choice (or if you are anti-green, then it’s orange but that’s a different story).  Deviled eggs are great for any gathering and with the help of Wholly Guacamole, my Deviled Green Guac Eggs are a fast way to put together an appetizer for your St. Paddy’s Day gathering. I put my own ingredients together along with a sample of Wholly Guacamole that I received and when my son saw what I was mixing up, he was intrigued and delighted.  He said that it had to be healthier than mayo, and I had to agree.  My husband had a taste when he came home from work and he was equally delighted. We all agree that this makes a fantastic bite.

Deviled Green Guac Eggs - Cookerati

You can find Wholly Guacamole in the refrigerated produce section of the store. If you have more time, you can make up your own guacamole using avocados, garlic powder and lemon or lime to keep from turning brown. If you wish for a little more heat use the Spicy Guac or add some hot peppers.  More Wholly recipes can be found on Pinterest – and if you like discounts check out the coupon tab on their Facebook Page.

Green pea shoots make a great 3 leaf cloverish like green to sprinkle around the eggs and give it a little Irish flair on your serving plate.
