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.

    I never thought of brunch as having a season! Do you see it as a winter thing? I love all variety of deviled eggs. Your Southwest version should be on our next party table. (Whenever that maybe…)

        I guess I think of New Years Day, Easter and Mother’s Day as the big brunch events. Not that I’m not happy too eat brunch for any other occasion that might arise 🙂

        I appreciate your kind offer. I may take you up on this! Consider it likewise on anything from the north!

          Thanks! And just let me know… lots of good SW ingredients I can get that are hard up north…

          I guess those are major bunch holidays – but there is also Memorial Day, 4th of July, and – it goes without saying – my birthday! 🙂 (Just kidding on the birthday…)

      I was trying to add flavor without heat so my husband would eat them 🙂 . Plus the mini-peppers keep in the fridge so well that they are easy to have around in the days of less frequent shopping!

      I just added the calorie information, which is of course dependent on the accuracy of the recipe plugin in. Looks like about 90 calories per half egg, which seems reasonable to my unprofessional (but often dieting 🙂 ) eye.
