Well, if you are going to do deviled eggs, while not go all in. Chipotle Deviled Eggs from D’lish Deviled Eggs will fool you. They are not fiery hot. There is just a smooth heat that glides along as you sample the softness of the deviled egg.

Before this book came out, I was not a deviled egg fan. I found them, well, yucky. The fillings I tried, just a couple of time, were sticky and staggering in harsh flavor. Not now. D’Lish Deviled Eggs provides a full platter of recipes to court your attention.

Suzen chose this one because we were having a “hot party:” homemade pickled carrots, fiery chicken wings, spiced potato salad, grilled asparagus, … And vodka on the rocks for all who wanted it. Or gin. Or just a good hearty red.

These eggs were a careful introduction to the night’s heat. I had two. That doubles my lifetime intake!

Chipotle Deviled Eggs

Yield: 24 halves

Ingredients:

  • One dozen hard-cooked eggs

Filling:

  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 3 tablespoons regular or low-fat sour cream
  • ½ teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1-2 tablespoons chipotle chile puree
  • 1 teaspoon mince fresh garlic
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons thinly sliced green onions

Topping:

  • Cilantro sprig
  • Diced tomato or red pepper [optional]

Preparation:

Halve the eggs lengthwise and transfer the yolks to a mixing bowl. Set the egg white halves on a platter, cover, and refrigerate

With a fork, mash the yolks to a smooth consistency. Add the mayonnaise, sour cream, mustard, chipotle puree, garlic, and salt, and mix until smooth. Stir in the green onion. Taste and season accordingly.

Spoon the mixture into a pastry bag fitted with a plain or large star tip, then pipe the mixture evenly into the egg white halves. Or, rill the eggs with a spoon, dividing the filling evenly.

Decorate the top of each egg with a sprig or cilantro or diced tomato or pepper.

Serve cooled, but not ice cold.
