I think I've mentioned before that I just don't like plain eggs.  I've tried them over easy, sunny side up, scrambled, and hard-boiled but plain eggs just don't do it for me.  It makes me mad because they're inexpensive, easy, and nutritious, but I just don't like them.

I do like deviled eggs.  There is something about the tangy creamy yolk mixture that makes everything about eggs taste better.  They are fairly easy too (if you can get the peels off your hard-boiled eggs).  Just mix the hard cooked yolks with some mayonnaise, mustard, pickles (or relish), a couple of spices then refill the whites with the yolk mixture.  I happened to be out of pickles so I used pickled jalapenos.  They added a great flavor and heat making these eggs even more devilish.  This is my new favorite way to make deviled eggs (I might expand on the recipe more but definitely keep the jalapenos).

Jalapenos make these eggs even more devilish.  [Tweet this]

To make deviled eggs, you need nice looking, peeled, hard-boiled eggs.  I usually have the hardest time getting the peels off.  It takes forever and my poor eggs are all pockmarked from where the shell stuck.  I searched online to find out how to make hard boiled eggs easier to peel and what I found is that you should put cold eggs into boiling water (boil for about 12 minutes and quickly cool them in ice water).  This is not what I was taught for most of my life, but it worked.  Here is another trick I learned recently from Taylor Made Ranch.

Jalapeno Deviled Eggs

Prep time:  15 minutes
Servings:  5

Ingredients:

5 hard-boiled eggs, peeled
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1-2 Tbsp mustard
1/4 cup pickled jalapenos, minced
jalapeno juice (optional)
salt and pepper to taste
sliced fresh jalapeno (optional)

Cut the peeled hard-boiled eggs in half lengthwise.  Remove the yolks (keeping the egg whites intact) and place in a medium bowl.

To the yolks add mayonnaise, mustard, and jalapenos.  Mash and mix well until a creamy paste is made.  Add a little of the pickled jalapeno juice if  the paste is too dry.  Taste and add salt and pepper as desired.

Meanwhile, lay out the egg whites, with the hollow up, in a shallow pan. There are special deviled egg pans that have egg shaped impressions to hold the eggs perfectly, but if you don't have one, no worries.  I just placed my eggs on a pie pan touching each other so they wouldn't roll over.

Spoon the yolk mixture into a zippered bag(you can use a piping bag if you have one).  Squeeze it into the corner of the bag then snip the corner of the bag off with scissors.  Pipe the yolk mixture back into the hollow in the egg whites.

Top each egg with a sliced jalapeno garnish, cover the pan, and refrigerate until ready to serve or serve immediately.

Makes about 5 servings.

Enjoy.
