Southwestern Egg Salad
Southwestern Egg Salad- a tasty Tex-Mex twist on the classic egg salad recipe that can be served as an appetizer with tortilla chips, a side dish or as a lovely stuffing for wraps and sandwiches.
The combination of Greek yogurt, avocado, onion, jalapeno and cilantro give this salad so much flavor. My family is always down for any type of Mexican spiced meal and I had some hard-boiled eggs in the fridge that needed to be used, so the Southwestern Egg Salad was born.
And I’m so glad it was! My family devoured this egg salad in about 15 minutes flat. There’s so much addicting flavor here, that you just won’t be able to get enough.
