These spicy Southwestern deviled eggs are tangy and delicious with a kick! A new twist on an old classic.

Spicy Southwestern Deviled Eggs

Since it’s been so hot lately, we have been eating a ton of smorgasbord and snack dinners and one of our favorite dishes to have at these type of meals are deviled eggs because we all love them. I recently decided to surprise my family with something a little different after seeing a recipe on MyRecipes that looked interesting. I adapted the recipe a bit to suit our tastes and to use the ingredients I had on hand. These spicy Southwestern deviled eggs turned out delicious and we all, especially my son and me, loved them. I liked the kick from the pickled jalapenos and the freshness from the cilantro. These little beauties disappeared quickly and I’ll definitely be making them again.

How to Make Spicy Southwestern Deviled Eggs

Make the hard-boiled eggs. Click here for instructions.  Carefully peel the shells from the eggs.

Cut the eggs in half lengthwise, and carefully remove the yolks into a small bowl. Mash the yolks; stir in the mayonnaise, pickled jalapenos and juice, white wine vinegar, dried mustard, cumin, sea salt, and freshly cracked black pepper, to taste. Mix well until creamy and smooth. Taste and add more seasonings, pickled juice, or vinegar, as desired, if needed.

Spoon the mixture into a small zip lock back and pipe into egg halves. Cover in an airtight container and chill for at least 1 hour or until ready to serve. Garnish with fresh cilantro right before serving. Enjoy.

Side Note: Fresher eggs are more difficult to peel. For ease of peeling, buy and refrigerator eggs for 7-10 days prior to making this recipe.

  1. Your kicked up version looks very good. Bev made a batch the other day and I have been loving them.

  2. This spicy version of deviled eggs really does sound terrific. BTW, I really like your photo with the napkin you selected…perfect!

  3. It’s the pickled jalapenos that are doing it for me. Love them in anything but they sound especially amazing in these deviled eggs!
