Avocado Egg Salad in Bell Pepper Cups

8 WWPP Posted by 2 years ago 2 Comments

The California Avocado Commission just needs to hire me as a full time ambassador or something. We are currently working together on a post-per-month contract but I can’t help myself. I love coming up with new ways to eat avocados! (And it feels so weird saying that as a former avocado hater but it’s true).

This morning I was staring at my last avocado, trying to figure out a new way to eat it besides My Ultimate Breakfast Avocado Toast, which is delicious but… I’m out of bread!

I’ve heard of people making avocado egg salad so I figured why not give it a shot. Plus, I had these awesome green bell peppers in the fridge with no real plan on using them.

Avocado Egg Salad on a Bell PepperWell, this avocado and hard-boiled egg combo ended up to be a match made in heaven… again! And I know not everyone’s a fan but sprinkle in a few bacon bits and it’s like a little party in your mouth.

Here’s what I did…

  • 1 green bell pepper
  • 2 hard-boiled eggs
  • 1/2 California avocado
  • 1 tsp dried chives (fresh would work, but I’m out)
  • 1 tbsp real bacon bits
  • Healthy pinch of salt and pepper

Cut the pepper in half from the top down. Clean out the seeds and set aside.

Mash the remaining ingredients together with a fork.

Fill the pepper halves with the egg mixture and you’re done!

I added a little more chives and bacon bits to the top for the photos to make (what’s in essence mush) look at least somewhat appetizing.

I hope it worked. :)
