Indulge your taste buds with this unique, creamy twist on classic deviled eggs. We love the traditional version, but the rich saltiness of the bacon, creaminess of the avocado and spiciness of the jalapeño peppers combine to create a dish that's even better than the original! Serve these deviled eggs as a side dish at a casual lunch or as an appetizer at your next cocktail party. They're a welcome break from cheese, crackers and vegetable trays, and the complex blend of flavors really adds pizzazz to your spread…we can't get enough of them!
