Chili Spiced Deviled Eggs

Ryan and I decided that dying eggs with a 5 month old would be a little messy so we didn’t dye eggs this year. We hard boiled eggs though. So we got halfway there. I knew we weren’t going to dye them but its not Easter to me without a plate of deviled eggs to devour in the days following. This year I decided to make deviled eggs with a bit of a Latin flare with chili powder, cumin and cilantro.

There are so many ways to make deviled eggs. Of course there is the classic version. Then there is this version with Sriracha, everyone’s favorite condiment. There is even this Indian inspired version. And these are just the tip of the iceberg. Get into your kitchen and experiment! It’s fun. You can even experiment with this version like making it a tad bit spicier by replacing the cilantro with a slice of fresh jalapeno.

    I am all for the jalapeno version. I have eaten deviled eggs my entire life (although not for some time at this junctiur). Thank for whetting my appetite.
