Jalapeno Popper Deviled Eggs

What are two of the most popular party appetizers to you?   Growing up in my household, we always had creamy deviled eggs and spicy jalapeno poppers for every family gathering.  So of course I had to combine the two and what a wonderful combo it is!

So for your next family grill out, holiday party or football game….make these delights!   My only tip is to possibly double the recipe because they’ll go fast!! 🙂

The Starting Lineup

  • 6 eggs, hardboiled
  • 3 heaping Tbsp cream cheese, softened
  • 2 Tbsp mayonaisse
  • 3 strips cooked bacon, crumbled
  • 1 jalapeno, diced (I prefer seeds in)
  • Salt & Pepper
  • 1/4 cup cooked chorizo (Optional..but delightful)

Garnish

  • 1 jalapeno, thinly sliced
  • 1 strip cooked bacon, pieces 

Start by peeling the outer shell of your cooled hardboiled eggs.  Slice each egg in half and carefully scoop out the yolk.  Lay the sliced egg white on to a serving tray and place 4 of the 6 yolks into a bowl (discard the other two yolks).

Along with the 4 yolks, add in the cream cheese, mayo, crumbled bacon, diced jalapeno and a pinch each of salt & pepper (add in chorizo here if using).  With a fork, combine these ingredients thoroughly.  You can now spoon into the egg whites or spoon all of the mix into a plastic baggy and pipe into the egg white.  *cut small tip off the baggy to pipe in.

After all of your eggs are complete (those hot jalapenos are really making the “deviled” in their name come to life huh?) you can garnish them with a thin slice of jalapeno and a small piece of bacon.  These garnishes help your guest know what is inside the yolk filling!
