How to make Jalapeno Popper Deviled Eggs
Be sure to see the recipe card below for full ingredients & instructions!
- Hard-boil the eggs and peel them.
- Cut the eggs in half, scoop out the yolk, and add them into a bowl.
- Add jalapeno, garlic, mayo, mustard, paprika, and cheese into the bowl of egg yolks, and mix to fully combine.
- Scoop the yolk mixture into each egg white, and top with jalapenos and bacon.
How do you peel hard-boiled eggs?
Here’s the easiest way I’ve found to peel them:
Keep the eggs in the cold water you used to cool them. Crack the ends of the eggs, and while still under water, roll the egg with the palm of your hand so that it continues to crack.
The water slips under the egg shell, helping it to release easily so that the shell comes off in larger pieces. Peel under water and rinse.
Can you make deviled eggs ahead of time?
Yes! You can either make these fully ahead of time, or partially prepare them so that it’s easy to finish the day of serving.
I recommend boiling and peeling the eggs ahead of time. Store boiled eggs in the fridge, then you can finish them and serve within 48 hours.
Another option is to boil, peel, halve the eggs, and make the yolk mixture. Store the egg whites and yolk mixture separately, in the fridge. Then assemble the deviled eggs when you’re ready to serve.
How do you store these spicy deviled eggs?
As mentioned above, there are a lot of options for making these ahead of time. You can pretty much store them at any stage in an airtight container or covered in plastic wrap.
Once they’re fully assembled, you can save leftovers up to 2 days.
- If these sound a little too spicy for you, skip the jalapeno in the yolk mixture. You can then just top them off with some jalapeno slices to still get a kick of heat.
- Hard-boil the eggs the night before making these to cut down on prep time.
- Check the recipe card for the best method to hard-boil eggs.
Everyone’s going to love these spicy deviled eggs! They have the perfect amount of heat and they look beautiful on any party platter or holiday table.
