Place eggs in the bottom of a small saucepan and cover with an inch of water. Bring to a rolling boil over medium high heat.
Remove from heat, cover and let the eggs sit in the water for 12 minutes.
Place the eggs in a bowl of ice water for several minutes to cool (this also makes it easier to peel the eggs).
Peel the eggs, removing the entire shell. Chop the eggs roughly and set aside.
Place the avocado in a bowl and mash with a fork, leaving some chunks if desired. Mix in the chopped eggs, lemon juice, garlic powder and chopped chives. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Taste and adjust flavours accordingly, adding more lemon juice if you want a more zesty flavour, more garlic powder if you prefer a stronger garlic taste, and additional fresh herbs for intensified flavour.
