These deviled eggs are a fun spin on the classic deviled egg. They are creamy, tangy and full of flavor. We like to top these with sliced jalapeno for some added crunch and heat. Enjoy!
On a Whole30, but need an Easter dish idea? This would make an awesome addition to any potluck!
Deviled eggs are a staple pot luck item in my family back on the east coast, but not so much at family functions with my in-laws here in the Midwest. Lately, I really started getting a craving for them and decided to make a batch at home. While I love a classic deviled egg, I wanted to do something different that would be a little more exciting and flavorful than the basic recipe.
My all time favorite flavor combination is cilantro and lime, so I used both and added some heat by topping them with jalapeno slices. I hesitantly added “optional” to add the jalapeno because they were the perfect addition to this family who loves spicy. They are not overpoweringly spicy, but add a nice heat and crunch. If spicy is not your thing, feel free to skip them. Trust me these deviled eggs are melt in your mouth good with or without them.
If you’re looking for something to take to a Super Bowl party, Easter or any gathering, these would be perfect. On the other hand, if you’re like me and just have a craving for deviled eggs and you want to make them at home, you could always 1/2 or 1/4 this recipe for a smaller group. I’ve made just three eggs at a time to have a yummy addition to my lunches during the week. I use this egg cooker to save time on meal prep time when I only want to make a few hard-boiled eggs.
