Avocado Egg Salad

I saw a recipe for this somewhere on the Internet, but the original directions were needlessly complex. I simplified it and it was incredibly delicious. Even better: no mayonnaise involved.


Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes (for eggs to boil)

Ingredients
Three (3) eggs
One (1) medium avocado
One (1) tablespoon of cream cheese -- Some recipes told me yogurt, but I love cream cheese much more.
One (1) clove of garlic, minced
Salt, pepper, crushed red pepper to taste


Directions
Boil eggs for thirty minutes or until hard-boiled.
Remove eggs and cool.
Slice avocado and lightly mash. -- Think: very chunky guacamole.
Gently stir in cream cheese.
Add in garlic and seasonings of your choice.Set aside
Peel and chop eggs.
Add eggs to mixture.
Eat in a roll, bread, on crackers, in a wrap, on lettuce. The possibilities are nearly endless!
