Deviled eggs with guacamole

Whats not to love in this. Eggs-yummm..., guacamole- double yummm...Combine the two together and you have a winner. A great dish for a party starter, or for those evenings when you don't want to spend eternity in the kitchen.

Ingredients: (generously serves a crowd)
15 eggs
2 large ripe avocados
1/2 tsp grated garlic
1-2 green chilies chopped fine
2-3 tbsp lime juice
salt and pepper to taste
4-5 sprigs of fresh coriander, chopped fine
Cayenne pepper for garnish
  1. Place eggs in a pan of water such that eggs are fully immersed in water. Bring to a boil and simmer for 1 minute. Remove pan from heat and let the eggs sit for 10 minutes. 
  2. Once they are cool to touch, peel the eggs carefully and keep aside. 
  3. Meanwhile make the guacamole. Peel and de-seed the avocados, mash them well and add all other ingredients as per your taste. 
  4. Slice the eggs in half and remove the cooked yolk in a mixing bowl. Mash the yolks and add the prepared guacamole to this. Do not over mix as the appearance becomes too mushy. Gently fold the two together. 
  5. Adjust the seasoning and then place heaping scoops of the yolk-guacamole mixture in the egg while hollows. Sprinkle with red and black pepper. Serve cool. 
  6. This can be made several hours in advance and refrigerated.
