Easy Deviled Eggs The Best Spicy Recipe you will ever taste, Classic Deviled Egg Finger food with a kick, Easter Egg Recipe IdeasThe Best Spicy Deviled Eggs Recipe

Deviled Eggs happen to be one of my favorite foods, when they are made right I can eat a whole plate of them (not that I have ever done that…lol).  It must be something in our family, because my little brother told his wife that deviled eggs are the perfect side dish, they GO WITH EVERY MEAL.  She thinks he is nuts, but I kind of agree with him.  If you do not share our love for deviled eggs, then maybe you are just looking for a great bbq side or Easter picnic idea… we still have you covered :).  These spicy deviled eggs are a great twist on the classic recipe.

Ingredients:

  • 1 Dozen Hard Boiled Eggs
  • 1/4 Cup Mayonnaise
  • 3/4 Teaspoon Yellow Mustard
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Serrano or Jalapeno Peppers (Finely Diced)
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Garlic Salt
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
  • Paprika (Optional)

Easy Deviled Eggs The Best Spicy Recipe you will ever taste,   Classic Deviled Egg Finger food with a kick, Easter Egg Recipe IdeasDirections:
Peel the hard boiled eggs then cut them in half lengthwise. Softly coop out the egg yolks and transfer them into a medium size mixing bowl.Add the mayonnaise, mustard, serrano peppers, garlic salt and cayenne pepper and mash with a fork until fully combined. Taste to see if additional salt is needed. Place the mixture into a frosting bag or Ziploc bag (with the tip cut off) and pipe the filling into the empty egg whites. If you don’t have either of these items, just scoop the filling into the egg whites with a small spoon. Garnish with paprika and slices of serrano pepper. Place the eggs on a serving tray and refrigerate until it’s time to serve.Easy Deviled Eggs The Best Spicy Recipe you will ever taste, Classic Deviled Egg Finger food with a kick, Easter Egg Recipe Ideas

Stuffed Jalapenos With Crispy Bacon Recipe

Stuffed Jalapenos With Crispy Bacon, quick and easy recipe, party Recipes, Superbowl RecipesStuffed Jalapenos With Crispy Bacon ~ GameDay Superbowl Snack Recipe

Looking for a finger licking good recipe for an appetizer or finger food, then you have got to try these Stuffed Jalapenos With Crispy Bacon.  They are easy to make and a low cost recipe as well.  Best part is you can prep them BEFORE your guests show up, then pop them in the oven right before they arrive for a hot and tasty treat with no stress.

Yields 24 stuffed pepper halves. Prep time 10 minutes, cooking time 15 minutes

For this recipe you will need:

  • 12 medium jalapeno peppers
  • 6 strips of thick cut bacon (cooked and crumbled)
  • 8 oz cream cheese brick softened to room temperature
  • 2/3 mexi style  blend cheese (shredded)
  • 2 tablespoon  ranch dip seasoning dry mix

Wash peppers, then cut in half lengthwise and take out seeds and ribs.  You might want to wear gloves while you do this, or put oil on your hands, then wash them with soap after your done. I found using a small spoon or even a grapefruit spoon works really well for getting the ribs and seeds out.  You want to make sure you get all the seeds out because that is where the heat is, if you like spicy then keep the ribs in.   Stuffed Jalapenos With Crispy Bacon, quick and easy recipe, party Recipes, Superbowl Recipes. Can't wait to try this recipe

In a mixing bowl add the cream cheese, shredded cheese and ranch seasoning.  Mix well and spoon into jalapeno halves, place  cooked bacon on top.  Put on baking sheet, and cook in the oven at 400 degrees for 15 minutes.

Quick tip *** I found that if you put them on a metal baking rack the peppers will stay upright during the cooking process and not tip over.  When they tip over the cheese tends to slide out, so this helps prevent that.  Make sure you put the rack on top of a cookie sheet for easier transport and clean up. Stuffed Jalapenos With Crispy Bacon, quick and easy recipe, party Recipes, Superbowl Recipes. Can't wait to try this recipe. TIP put them on a wire rack while cooking so the cheese does not slide out while baking.
