These are great for parties and all occasions, especially events around Halloween. If you are going to do Deviled Eggs anyway- Why not add some Superfoods? Fresh Avocado adds a nice creaminess, so you can go light on the Mayo. The use of Basil adds an herbal balance. A touch of Green Chili gives them an extra bite. For a fun twist, try serving these Green Eggs with Smoked Ham.
A final sprinkling of POWER or HEROIC! (by California Gold BBQ Rubs) takes the flavor to the next level. POWER includes low levels of Salt and Sugar. HEROIC! has no added Salt or Sugar. We “collaborated” with Chef Rick Bayless in our version of the recipe, by using his liquid Original Guacamole Mix with Tomatillo, Green Chili and Garlic (by Frontera Foods).
