  • 1 tablespoon cilantro, minced
  • 2 teaspoons green onions, minced
  • 1 teaspoon taco seasoning (homemade preferred)

  • Pickled jalapeño
  • Cilantro
  • Grape or cherry tomatoes, halved
  • Avocado
  • Bacon, crumbled
  • Green onion, sliced
  • Bell peppers, diced


  • Slice eggs in half lengthwise. Scoop out yolks and place them in a medium mixing bowl. Place whites on a serving platter.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Garnish as desired. Deviled eggs are best served immediately.
