Blue Ribbon Recipe

Add a bit of Mexican flair to your deviled eggs with a twist. They pack a big punch of flavor from the fresh and pickled jalapenos along with the pickled jalapeno juice. The filling is super creamy. Sprinkling cilantro on tops adds freshness and flavor to the deviled eggs. Make these ahead of time because they're even better after they've chilled several hours. Serve these as a side dish with a taco bar and margaritas or a Cinco de Mayo gathering. Different and delicious!

How To Make jalapeno deviled eggs

Test Kitchen Tips
Since every jalapeno has a different level of heat, make sure to start with half a fresh jalapeno. When testing, half of one gave the deviled eggs a pretty good kick.
  • Eggs in a pot of water.
    In a pot boil eggs for 10 minutes on stove top over medium heat.
  • Cooked eggs in ice water.
    Let eggs cool or submerge in cold water for a few minutes.
  • Peeled eggs cut in half and yolk removed.
    Peel eggshells off, slice all eggs in half and remove yolks carefully with a spoon. Place yolks in a bowl.
  • Breaking apart the egg yolks.
    With a fork break hard yolks apart.
  • Deviled egg filling ingredients in the bowl.
    Add all ingredients except toppings.
  • Filling ingredients mixed together.
    Mix well.
  • Deviled eggs garnished with cilantro and chives.
    With a spoon add mixture back into egg whites. Garnish with chopped chives and cilantro. Refrigerate for 30 minutes and serve. Enjoy!
