Mexican Egg Salad Sandwich

Exactly how long do hardboiled eggs last anyway?

Well, if you're like me and still have some from Easter, or you know, are willing to boil eggs just because, well have I got a recipe for you.

First, gather these ingredients

P4141228

6 Hardboiled eggs (peeled and chopped)
Finely diced shallot (the first time I made this, I used a sliced green onion)
1 T. chopped cilantro
2 T. (or less) mayonnaise
1/8 t. cumin
1/8 t. chili powder
1 avocado (peeled and chopped)

Mix together in that order and slap on some bread.

This is sooo good. Even the cilantro haters in the household ate it up.

I love egg sandwiches in general, have a couple a week, AND we eat a lot of avocados, AND I usually also slice up some onion, so this is a win/win sandwich! Except for the cilantro, which I hate under any circumstances, no matter what it might be mixed with, even if you hid it in chocolate. Why? Because IT doesn't like me!

ok, my comment just disappeared, even though I did the word and clicked publish. So I'll wait still longer and then re-comment in a minute.

i'm a sucker for egg salad, and i have a bunch of cilantro in the garden, which over-wintered in a cold frame and is now threatening to bolt if i don't use it up. i'll have to try this.

I wish I liked egg salad. It would be a handy way to use up all these farmshare eggs.

Plus, that *does* look good.

Mmmm. I've never had an egg salad sandwich before, but that looks delish!!! I can't wait to try it. I'm always surfing the net and finding new stuff to make! Thanks Wendy. If you are looking for any yummy Asian recipes, let me know. I sent Jenny a recipe for awesome curry that I found using a crockpot. If you ever need recipes, I have a ton that I've tried and loved! :)
