It’s that time of year again, time to come up with ways to use all those hard boiled eggs. Deviled eggs are an easy favorite and this recipe is a lot of fun because it kicks up the heat making them all the more devilish.
Devilishly Good Eggs
1/2 cup Hellmann’s original mayonnaise (make your own if you desire but don’t go for the low fat or “health” versions because most just taste off)
6 tablespoons Tapatio (or other favorite hot sauce–a little chipotle would add a great bit of flavor)
2 teaspoons smoked hot paprika, divided
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
salt and freshly ground pepper
Slice your perfectly hard boiled eggs in half lengthwise and remove yolks into a medium bowl. In medium bowl add mayonnaise, hot sauce, 1 teaspoon smoked hot paprika, and chili powder, mix until smooth. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Spoon mixture back into your eggs, dust with remaining paprika, and you are good to go.
Use a small pastry bag with a star tip to pipe in your egg yolk mixture back into your eggs swirling into a rosette shape as you go. The presentation is a lot more enticing and gives a simple dish just the right amount of flair.
