We have lots of birthday parties at our house. Devilled eggs are always a favorite. This time a can of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce caught my attention at the store.
I usually buy a couple cans of these every time I see them. Terrific as a flavor booster and as an addition to BBQ sauces they are super convenient.
I personally prefer super creamy devilled eggs. These are very creamy – if you prefer your eggs less creamy cut the mayo in half.
- 1 dozen hardboiled eggs
- 2/3 cup Hellman’s Mayo ( don’t even think about substituting)
- 3 thick slices Willowgrove Hill Farms Bacon cooked (cut into 24 pcs.)
- 2 tablespoons very finely minced chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
- 2 tsp dried mustard
- 1 tsp granulated onion
- 1 tbsp smoked paprika
- kosher salt & white pepper to taste
- chives for garnish
Slice hard boiled eggs in half. Remove yolks to a small food processor. To the yolks add mayo, smoked paprika, dried mustard, salt, white pepper, and granulated onion. Pulse until very smooth. Stir in chipotle peppers in adobo sauce. Spoon mixture into a ziploc bag or piping bag. Fill white cavities of eggs. Garnish with bacon & chives. FYI Leftover yolk filling is excellent on crackers too!
Pulled pork also makes an excellent topping on devilled eggs. Try it. Trust me on this.
