Traditional Deviled Eggs are made with the full egg including the yolk, hence they tend to be high in fat and cholesterol. Avocado Angel Eggs reduces the calories, fat and cholesterol, and increases the healthy monosaturated fats.
Replacing the high-fat egg yolk and mayonnaise with avocados, and adding additional spices and flavorful vegetables makes these eggs "angelic".
Slice each egg in half lengthwise removing egg yolks (egg yolks can be used in another recipe). Cut avocado in half and remove seed. Peel avocado and cube.
In bowl combine avocado, lemon juice and garlic mashing to blend. Stir in shallots or green onions and capers, if desired.
Fill each egg white with avocado mixture. Garnish with bell pepper. Serve.
