Guacamole Deviled Eggs



Ingredients:
10 hardboiled eggs, peeled and sliced length-wise
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon minced hot pepper
1 teaspoon minced onion
1 small avocado
hot sauce

to garnish:
baby cherry tomato halves

Directions:
In a small bowl, use a fork and thoroughly mix together all ingredients. Spoon an equal amount into each of the egg halves. Top each with a baby tomato half.

My thoughts:
I know I've posted a number of deviled egg recipes here, but this weekend I came into posession of some tiny (about the size of my pinky fingernail) cherry tomatoes and kept thinking what a cute garnish they'd be for a deviled egg. I had a fast approaching over ripe avocado and there you go-guacamole deviled eggs.
