Cooking Tips for the Best Results:

  1. Use ripe avocados: To ensure a creamy and flavorful filling, choose avocados that yield slightly when gently squeezed.
  2. Adjust the spice level: If you prefer a milder kick, reduce the amount of cayenne pepper, or omit it altogether.
  3. Perfectly boiled eggs: Achieve easy-to-peel hard-boiled eggs by adding a splash of vinegar to the boiling water and gently tapping the eggs before boiling.
  4. Use a piping bag: For a neater presentation, pipe the avocado-egg mixture into the egg whites using a pastry bag or a plastic sandwich bag with a corner snipped off.
  5. Make it ahead: Prepare the filling and egg whites separately, then assemble just before serving to maintain the freshness and texture.
