Spicy Chipotle & Jalapeno Deviled Eggs:
Whether you’re on a keto or low carb diet or not, you’re probably no stranger to a traditional deviled egg. They’re super filling, and an easy to make appetizer, as well as a true crowd pleaser.
As a low carb eater myself, I find these to be a perfect snack to have on hand and often make them ahead of time. As much as I enjoy a traditional style deviled egg, I like finding ways to switch up the flavor profile.
I recently had some leftover chipotle peppers from this easy Keto Chipotle Chili, and used the remainder to create this spicy, flavor filled version deviled egg.

Spicy Chipotle Filling
Chipotle peppers are typically found marinated in a spicy tangy red sauce called Adobo. What I love about these peppers is how smoky they are and having that flavor come through in the filling. It balances out really well with the simplicity of the mayo and a few pinches of salt and pepper.
I highly recommend blending your filling through a food processor or mixing it with a hand mixer. It makes the filling so smooth, rich, and fluffy.
Once the flavor of the egg yolk and chipotle was created, I wanted to add a little texture to the eggs. I finely minced up some red pepper and jalapeno (about 2 Tbsp. of each).
The garnish on these eggs is not only beautiful, but it really adds to the texture and flavor of the egg. I shredded some pepper jack cheese and made tiny little cheese crisps that add a crispy spicy bite to these already amazing deviled eggs.
Toss in a few extra jalapeno slices and some fresh minced cilantro and it comes together just beautifully. Fancy looking food can also be simple!
