Devilish Deviled Eggs

Deviled eggs were served at the Chef's infamous "Bloggers 99 Cent White Wine Tasting" in September. Local blogger Debbi Swanson Patrick of altadenaaboveitall was kind enough to email the Chef her tasty recipe. Some condiments hang around in the refrigerator forever, like capers, mustard and marinated hot peppers (which the Chef used a month and a half ago in a cashew hot pepper stir fry.) With Halloween around the corner, the Chef came up with a clever way to use the rest of his red hot peppers -- deviled eggs with hot pepper devil horns. It's a spicy fun Halloween party food. Debbi's recipe is quick and simple to do and chile peppers provide a hot kick sure to keep you on your toes when handing out sweets to your doorbell - ringing little ghosts and goblins. Be sure to have a cool beverage at the ready! All ingredients are from the 99c only Store.

Ingredients (makes a dozen)  
  • 1 dozen 99.99 cent eggs
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise or Miracle Whip
  • 1 tbsp. yellow or Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp. celery seed or dried celery leaf
  • 2 tbsp. sweet relish or capers (drain liquid)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 jar 99.99 cent whole marinated hot peppers - 2 red hot peppers for each deviled egg

Boil eggs for about 10 minutes. Remove and cool in refrigerator. Shell eggs and slice lengthwise. Add yolks, mayo, mustard, celery seed, relish, salt and pepper and mix with a fork or a food processor until creamy (add more mayo a little at a time if too dry). Spoon egg mixture into egg white shells and refrigerate for an hour. Rinse and pat dry marinated hot peppers then add 2 devil horn red hot peppers per deviled egg. When you want some heat, use coke spoon sized devil horn to scoop out egg mixture.
*When handling hot peppers make sure to wash your hands with soap afterward and do not rub eyes! Your fingers are like hot match sticks!

Coke-spoon sized horns? But I don't know how large that would be :)

Great horns!

About an inch in length.

Hi Billy - I use the same recipe for deviled eggs, except if dry, I add about a tablespoon of Ranch Dressing; gives it a little more flavor. Do the same when I make tuna salad. Happy Halloween. Love, Mom

I've heard that Japanese use wasbi in their deviled eggs.
