For the hot mayo mixture:

1 red bell pepper, chopped
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
⅓ cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon paprika

For the sweet mayo mixture:

2 teaspoons of green sriracha
1 tablespoon honey
1 spring onion, chopped
¼ cup mayonnaise

For the curry-mayo mixture:

2 teaspoons of curry powder
½ tablespoon dijon mustard
⅓ cup mayonnaise

Ingredients Needed

Bacon. Use good quality bacon and make sure to finely mince it so it will evenly distribute in your egg yolk mixture. I&rsquom using 3 slices of bacon for this recipe, but you can adjust to your own tastes. More bacon!

Jalapeno Peppers. Finely mince at least one jalapeno pepper so it will evenly mix in your deviled egg mixture, and slice one pepper for garnishing the deviled eggs for serving. You can use other peppers if you&rsquod like. As a variation, try roasting the jalapeno before mincing for a bit of a smoky flavor.

Garlic. I&rsquove used 3 garlic cloves, minced just like the jalapenos. You can use garlic powder as an alternative.

Eggs. 6 hard boiled eggs will give you 12 stuffed deviled eggs. You can easily double or even triple this recipe by simply multiplying the ingredients.

Cream Cheese. I&rsquom using 2 ounces of cream cheese to make the egg stuffing mixture a creamier quality. It also makes this recipe more like jalapeno popper deviled eggs. So good!

Mayonnaise. Mayo is a staple in classic deviled eggs, and adds to the creaminess and overall flavor. Use a good quality mayo. I use 2 tablespoons.

Mustard. Mustard is another staple in traditional deviled eggs, though not everyone uses it. My mother always did. I&rsquom using spicy brown mustard to assist with the overall spicy quality, though you can use other mustard such as yellow mustard or Dijon mustard. Use your favorite.

Sriracha. Let&rsquos spice things up! I like to use some of my homemade sriracha, but use your favorite brand, or use a bit of your own favorite hot sauce. The recipe calls for 1 teaspoon, but you can easily add in more.

Spices. My recipe calls for 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper and a bit of salt and pepper, but here is where you can get creative. Add in more cayenne for a spicier deviled eggs, or use your own favorite spicy chili powder. Ghost pepper, anyone? That&rsquoll REALLY spice up your deviled eggs. Use smoked paprika for a milder version.

Garnish. Be sure to reserve some of the cooked bacon to crumble over the top. Sliced jalapenos add a nice touch, as does a sprinkling of spicy chili flakes and/or extra cayenne pepper or paprika.

Old-Fashioned Spicy Deviled Eggs

12 large hard-boiled eggs, carefully peeled, and sliced in half the long way
1/3 cup spicy brown mustard
1/4 cup mayonnaise
2 teaspoons white wine vinegar
1/4 teaspoon hot sauce
4 teaspoons capers packed in brine, drained and chopped
1/4 cup minced fresh parsley
1 pinch salt and cayenne pepper, or to taste
paprika, for garnish

How to Hard-Boil Eggs

I highly recommend hard-boiling the eggs ahead of time for this recipe. Here is how to hard-boil eggs perfectly:

  1. Add the eggs to a pot: Place the eggs in a large pot and cover them with 2 inches of water.
  2. Boil: Bring the water to a boil over high heat. You should see bubbles bursting at the surface of the water.
  3. Let the eggs cook: Turn off the heat. Cover with a tight-fitting lid and allow the eggs sit for 10-12 minutes.
  4. Cool: Drain and then run cold water over the eggs, to stop them from cooking any further.

After your eggs have been boiled, cooled, and peeled, the rest of this recipe is a breeze.

Garlic and basil

Kiersten Hickman/Eat This, Not That!

Any garlic aioli fans out there? Add 1-2 teaspoons of garlic powder (depending on how garlicky you like it), as well as 1 teaspoon of dried basil leaves, into the basic deviled egg mixture. Sprinkle on more dried basil leaves on top for decoration.
