Avocado Deviled Eggs-A yummy side to bring to your 4th party!

I made these unique, healthy deviled eggs the other day and they were a hit!
Give them a try!

Avocado Deviled Eggs
10 large eggs (although I used 12)
1/4 c fat free mayo or plain yogurt
1 T lime juice
1 tsp wasabi paste (I did not include this...not a big wasabi fan..too hot)
1/4 tsp salt
pinch of fresh ground black pepper
1 plum tomato, seeded and finely chopped
1 scallion, finely chopped
1 serrano chile, seeded and minced
1 firm-ripe Hass avocado, halved, peeled, pitted, and diced

hard boil the eggs, cool, and cut in halve. Scoop the yolk into a boil. Mix mayo, lime juice, wasabi, salt, and pepper into bowl with a fork until smooth. Fold in tomato, scallion, chile pepper. Lastly, fold in avocado and spoon into halved egg whites.
Serve and enjoy!

Healthy tidbit: Avocado's are a good source of monounsaturated fats (good for the heart) and pack in about 60% more potassium than a banana.

Until next time...
Look good, feel good, do good
