This is my take on blending 2 cultures together from Chicago & Mexico in a Deviled Egg Recipe. I created this recipe using seeded Jalapeno Peppers from our garden for my husband's Special Birthday Dinner. I used one of our favorite cheeses Feta & blended it with Shredded Mexican Cheese, along with a special blend of spices, which created a robust flavor for our Special Occasion.

These Deviled Eggs are not only unique, but they are tasty and colorful as well when presented to the dinner table. The Jalapeno pepper rings when centered with a roasted red pepper creates a beautiful presentation.
