Need an idea for what to bring to a potluck?  Or an appetizer for game day?  These scrumptious deviled eggs have you covered.

Spicy Jalapeno Deviled Eggs

These spicy deviled eggs make a wonderful side dish or appetizer, and are also handy to have in the fridge for a quick lunch or snack.

They last nicely in the fridge which works out great when making them ahead of time.

For a little deviled egg, each one of these packs a spicy punch thanks to hot nacho jalapenos (from a jar) that are in the egg filling as well as on top of the deviled egg for garnish. 

The egg filling has chili powder, ground cumin and chopped cilantro in it which adds a wonderful “south of the border” flavor.

Just the right amount of salt really makes the taste pop in these deviled eggs so make sure to do a taste test on the filling and add more salt if needed.

  1. Just made these…Yumm!! Gotta remember though, in TX, when something is marked “spicy” (i.e. diced jalapenos): it’s SPICY!

    • Hi Amber! so glad you liked these. Now I’m thinking that I should have added more jalapenos in the recipe for TX taste buds! Have a great rest of the week!

  2. Interesting variation!
