Set whites aside. Place yolks in a large bowl; mash with a fork. Stir in Paleo Mayonnaise, mustard, 1 tsp. of the lemon juice, black pepper, and hot pepper sauce. Spoon or pipe yolk mixture into egg white halves. Cover and chill up to 4 hours. Before serving, cut avocado into 1/2-inch pieces; toss gently with remaining 1 tsp. lemon juice. Sprinkle deviled eggs with avocado and, if desired, chives. Paleo Mayonnaise In a wide-mouth pint jar or 2-cup liquid measuring cup combine first five ingredients (through cayenne pepper). Slowly add oil. If necessary, let stand until oil separates from egg mixture. Using an immersion blender, hold blender against bottom of jar and blend 20 to 30 seconds. When mixture is nearly combined and thickened, move blender up and down while blending to incorporate any remaining oil. (Or in a medium bowl whisk together first five ingredients [through cayenne pepper]. Slowly add oil in a thin, steady stream, whisking constantly until combined and thickened.) Cover jar or transfer mayonnaise to an airtight container. Store in the refrigerator 3 to 5 days. *Tip To hard-cook eggs, place eggs in a single layer in a Dutch oven. Add enough cold water to cover eggs by 1 inch. Bring to a full rolling boil over high heat; remove from heat. Cover and let stand 15 minutes; drain. Place eggs in ice water to cool; drain. To peel, gently tap each egg on countertop. Roll egg between the palms of your hands. Peel off eggshell, starting at the large end. * Be sure your egg is pasteurized because it never gets cooked to kill harmful bacteria.
