Last-Minute Halloween Recipe: Deviled Eyeballs

Looking for last-minute Halloween recipes to make for your little monsters this Halloween?  These Deviled Eyeballs from my friends at Avocados from Mexico are cute and spooky, and oh so easy to make!  And they would be perfect served aside Sloppy Worm Sandwiches

Deviled Eyeballs


  • 8 hard-boiled eggs
  • 2 fully ripened Avocadoes from Mexico, pitted, peeled, and diced
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice 
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne) 
  • 1 tablespoon grated horseradish, drained (optional)
Peel the hard-boiled eggs; cut in halves lengthwise. Remove yolks to medium bowl; arrange whites on serving platter. To bowl with yolks, add avocados and lemon juice; mash until smooth, mixing well. Season with salt and peppers.  For extra flavor, stir in the tablespoon of grated horseradish, if desired.  Fill each egg white half with heaping tablespoon of mixture, piling high; sprinkle with herbs, if desired.

To make devilish eyes: Thinly slice roasted red peppers to create veins on eyeballs, or drizzle tops with bottled red hot sauce.  Top with sliced black olives.  Enjoy!!!  

Have a safe and very Happy Halloween!
