For the deviled eggs:

12 Nellie’s Free Range Eggs, hard boiled and peeled

1/3 cup plain Greek yogurt (Rachel prefers 2%)

3 tablespoons mayonnaise

3 tablespoons sharp cheddar cheese, shredded

1 tablespoon cilantro, minced

2 teaspoons green onions, minced

Jalapeño

Pickled jalapeño

Cilantro

Grape or cherry tomatoes, halved

Avocado

Bacon, crumbled

Green onion, sliced

Bell peppers, diced

Directions

  1. Slice eggs in half lengthwise. Scoop out yolks and place them in a medium mixing bowl. Place whites on a serving platter.
  2. Smash yolks with a fork until no large pieces remain. Add yogurt, mayonnaise, and mustard. If mixture seems dry, add a little more yogurt and/or mayonnaise.
  3. Add cheese, cilantro, green onion, and taco seasoning. Stir to combine. Place yolk mixture either in a piping bag or a zip-top bag and cut off the corner. Squeeze yolk mixture into egg whites.
  4. Garnish as desired. Deviled eggs are best served immediately.
