Leave the skin on and remove the pit. Season the top of the avocado with salt & pepper. Slice a small sliver of the bottom of the avocado skin to create a flat surface without breaking through the avocado meat. Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil to a high-sided skillet and place over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the avocado slices with the hollow side facing up. This step can be done with the avocados peeled as well. I like it better with the skin on. Crack one egg into each hole, make sure the egg fits the hole and doesn’t over flow. Season the eggs with salt and pepper & the paprika & cayenne mixture. Pour water into the bottom of the pan and cover the pan with a lid. Bring the water to a simmer and let the eggs steam until the egg whites have set and the yolks are still runny, about 3 minutes. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, mix together peppers, cilantro and remaining olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Remove the egg-stuffed avocados to a serving platter. Top with pepper cilantro salad and serve.
