Spicy Jalapeno Deviled Eggs are a great party appetizer to wow your family and friends. They are so good that you will catch yourself preparing these jalapeno flavored deviled eggs for your self. At least that’s what happened to me.
What are deviled eggs?
Deviled Eggs are stuffed eggs served as a party appetizer as part of a selection of hors-d’oeuvres.
Egg are boiled hard, the yolk is removed and mixed with other ingredients such as mayonnaise and mustard. Mustard is usually the main ingredient but for this spicy jalapeno deviled eggs recipe I have left out the mustard and added another deviled ingredient instead!
Deviled Eggs are super popular in the US and Europe. In the German-speaking countries, we know them as Russian eggs. Besides, deviled eggs in Europe really resemble Russian delicacies because you will find them being served with smoked salmon and caviar.
Deviled eggs have been around since Roman times. Romans were big party animals and loved good food, so thanks to them we can enjoy a variety of deviled eggs!
Spicy Jalapeno Deviled Eggs Ingredients
My spicy jalapeno deviled eggs are without mustard because when I came up with this recipe I was out of mustard and I got creative. So, instead of mustard, I add some acidity with a pang! I add hot pepper sauce and this is the secret ingredient here.
Of course, you are free to switch the hot pepper sauce with plain white vinegar or rice vinegar. BUT these are spicy jalapeno deviled eggs so you get to go crazy with some hot pepper sauce and you don’t want to miss that opportunity.
The number of jalapenos that you use is up to you. I tend to go for 2-4, depending on the mood and the crowd. I leave the seeds in because let’s face it, jalapenos are not that spicy and we will want something here to tickle our tongue.
