What's better than a deviled egg? How about a deep-fried deviled egg?! This appetizer will blow the minds of our family and friends. Bacon is wrapped around the deviled egg that's stuffed with a spicy, creamy filling. Everything is deep-fried until crispy. When you bite into the deviled egg, there are different textures - crispy, crunchy, and creamy. The chipotle dipping sauce puts these eggs over the top. Make sure to serve these while still warm.

    Side note: You can add as much or little of the chipotle as you like. My family tends to like them spicy so I use almost all of the can.
