This was one of the appetizer items I served for Easter Dinner. I added the Avocado, to add extra fiber to the dish. Added the lemon juice to prevent the avocado from turning brown. These turned out very good, the horseradish gave them the extra kick they needed in the flavor category, and we loved them. My husband had 4 before dinner was ready. I made my entire dinner as carb friendly, and because of the fiber in the avocados, this appetizer only had 1 net carb per half egg serving.The food processor works wonders for this appetizer. Add everything to the processor for a creamy texture.

    Now top each half with 2 green bell pepper chips, or use Jalapeno chips for the eyes and one red for the nose. OPTIONAL
