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.

How To Make

  • 1
    Cut boiled eggs length wise in circular motion without cutting boiled yolks then remove.
  • 2
    Mix boiled yolks with all ingredients (remove 2 Tbsp of blended chipotle peppers in Adobo sauce for the ranch dressing) until a smooth consistency.
  • 3
    Fill egg whites with yolk mixture.
  • 4
    Wrap the deviled egg with sliced bacon and set aside.
  • 5
    For Batter: Mix dry ingredients together.
  • 6
    Add water and then beer mixing well so that there are no lumps and smooth consistency.
  • 7
    Heat 1 quart of canola oil to 350 degrees. Lightly dredge deviled egg in flour shaking off excess flour.
  • 8
    Dip egg in the batter mix.
  • 9
    Then gently place in the heated oil. Repeat until all eggs are coated and cooked. You'll want to occasionally give the batter a stir during the batter and frying process.

    For chipotle ranch, add the 2 Tbsp of reserved blended chipotles to 2 cups of ranch dressings.

    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.
