When I think of deviled eggs, I think of two things: brunch and cookouts. While brunch season is mostly behind us now, cookouts are just getting ready to go. Even if they do end up smaller this year.
I am still hopeful for cookouts season since, despite the pandemic, we managed to rescue Mother’s Day. Two of our 20-soomething daughters self-quarantined for 14 days, so they could come to visit.
My husband grabbed a takeout “buffet” for four and we skyped our 3rd daughter out of state. It was a fun day. And even though I somehow got left off the Skype call with my mother I didn’t feel too bad since I’d been able to talk to her through the senior housing glass a few days prior.
Still, when my Sunday blogging group picked deviled eggs to feature today, I was initially uninspired. Then I thought of the Mexican/Southwest food I’ve been missing. And Southwestern deviled eggs sounded delicious!
There are many online recipes, but I added a couple things I didn’t see anywhere. First, I tossed in some chopped mini-peppers for both color and flavor. Then, when the recipe seemed to “need something,” I added a little fresh lime juice. Yup, that was the ticket.
If you'd like a spicier egg, add a dash of hot sauce. This recipe divides easily into half or 1/4, if you are serving a smaller group.
