Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place eggs in a single layer in a saucepan; cover with water. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low and cook at the barest simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat, pour out hot water and cover the eggs with ice-cold water. Let stand in the water until cool enough to handle before peeling. Let cool to room temperature or refrigerate until cold.

  • Meanwhile, mash avocado with salsa and lemon juice in a medium bowl until combined, but still a little chunky.

  • Cut each egg in half; remove and discard yolks. Fill each half with about 2 teaspoons guacamole. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.


Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate the unpeeled hard-boiled eggs for up to 1 week.
