Jalapeno Deviled Eggs is one of my favorite Deviled Eggs recipes, which I can eat anytime of year. I think normal deviled eggs are boring and lack the flavor and pizazz that this spicy deviled egg recipe delivers. Once you try this recipe, you won't want to go back to boring old egg appetizers.
This is the ultimate party appetizer. Whether having a Super Bowl party, looking for a holiday or Christmas appetizer, or looking for ways use up your hard boiled Easter eggs, you've found your new favorite recipe. It's especially popular during Super Bowl, along side my easy Twice Baked Potatoes.
Jalapeno Poppers are a popular American appetizer, that's becoming more popular here in Australia. They're jalapenos that are stuffed with cheese, spices and sometimes bacon. Then they're baked or deep fried. This recipe is a fusion of the flavors of a Jalapeno Popper and a Deviled Egg recipe. You can use whatever ratios of jalapenos you like, if it's too spicy for you.
How to make Spicy Deviled Eggs
For my spicy deviled eggs recipe, I use 3 different type of Jalapeno peppers. Fried, Pickled and Fresh. I love the crunchy texture of French's Crispy Fried Jalapenos. Easy to find in the States, but harder to buy here in Australia. You can only find them in a few USA food stores or online. Pickled Jalapenos add a different texture and familiar flavor to the egg stuffing. Finally the garnish of the freshly sliced jalapeno adds freshness and spicy kick to your Jalapeno Deviled Egg.
My other flavor tip is to use fresh onion instead of onion powder. Onion adds a delicious flavor and depth to the stuffed eggs, compared to dried onion powder. And its so easy to make. Don't finely dice the onion, but use a garlic press to squeeze and mince the onion. I use about 1 teaspoon of minced onion and onion juice, you can use more if needed. I usually hard boil the eggs the night before and keep them in the fridge until I'm ready to use them. It's best to make the jalapeno egg stuffing immediately before stuffing the egg cup. That way the Fried Jalapenos are still nice a crispy, adding a nice contrast.
If there is any leftover jalapeno egg stuffing, I just make an Egg Sandwich with it. The perfect mix of egg, jalapeno, bacon and cheese, you won't want a regular egg sandwich again.
How Long Can Hard Boiled Eggs Sit Out?
Like many foods, you need to be careful when leaving foods on the table at room temperature. It's commonly accepted that you don't leave foods out for longer than 2 hours, so you don't risk getting sick. So keep them refrigerated until ready to serve, and promptly wrap up and refrigerate leftovers.
Are Deviled Eggs Fattening?
I think the preferred answer to this is.... Jalapeño Popper Deviled Eggs are Keto if you don't use the Crispy Fried Jalapenos. Keto is a low carb, high fat diet with health benefits. It's similar to an Atkins diet, which has weight loss benefits. Now I'm not saying that if you eat this as part of your regular diet, you will lose weight. You have to live the Keto life, but for the rest of us, it's fattening (but so tasty)!
