Chipotle-Lime Deviled Eggs

There must be all kinds of yellow foods in the world, but one of my favorite yellow foods has to be deviled eggs. Have you ever made a bad batch of deviled eggs? I know I haven’t, but this particular version of Chipotle-Lime Deviled Eggs is definitely destined to be one of my deviled eggs greatest hits.

These deviled eggs were so good, I ate the ones in the photo before the pictures had even loaded into my computer and every food photographer worth the salt on her deviled eggs knows you check the photos before you eat up all the food! I just couldn’t help myself.

This recipe makes 12 deviled egg halves, or 6 servings if you eat two halves, but it can easily be double or tripled if you want to make deviled eggs for a crowd; enjoy!

Chipotle-Lime Deviled Eggs

Yield 6 servings (2 egg halves per serving)
Prep Time 50 minutes
Total Time 50 minutes

These Chipotle-Lime Deviled Eggs are one of my favorites!


  • 6 eggs (preferably about a week old)
  • 2 T mayo
  • 2 T  plain yogurt or Greek yogurt (see notes)
  • 2 T fresh lime juice
  • 1 T yellow mustard (not Dijon)
  • 1/4 tsp. ground Chipotle chile peppers (see notes)
  • 1/2 tsp. salt (see notes)
  • 2 green onions, green part only, finely chopped


  1. First, make perfect hard-boiled eggs.
  2. Let eggs cool, then peel and cut in half crosswise.
  3. While eggs are cooling, slice green onions, and finely chop with chef’s knife.
  4. When eggs are quite cool, carefully remove yolks and put into small bowl.
  5. Mash yolks well with a fork.
  6. Mix together lime juice and Chipotle chile powder (I used Penzeys). (If you don’t do this, you’ll have large flecks of chile powder in the deviled yolk mixture. The chile powder won’t dissolve completely, but adding it to the lime juice does make it blend in better.)
  7. Add lime-Chipotle mixture to mashed yolks, then stir in mayo, mustard, plain yogurt, salt (I used Vege-Sal), and half the chopped green onions.
  8. Taste for seasoning to see if you want more mustard, Chipotle chile powder, or salt.
  9. Stir until mixture is well combined.
  10. Arrange eggs white halves on serving plate.
  11. Use a rubber scraper to scoop yolk mixture into a small plastic bag. Cut a small piece off one corner of the bag and squeeze from the top to force the yolk mixture out the hole, into the egg halves. (This can also be done with a spoon or a cake decorating tool.)
  12. When all egg white shells are filled with deviled yolk mixture, sprinkle with remaining chopped green onions.
  13. Serve immediately.


Use all mayo and skip the Greek yogurt if you prefer. Use any spicy Chili Powder you prefer, or substitute sharp paprika for a slightly different twist. I used Vege-Sal (affiliate link) for this recipe. Recipe created by Kalyn.

  1. Seriously, these sound delicious. I adore deviled eggs and I am making these!

  2. These sound absolutely perfect! I tried the pesto deviled eggs you have listed a while back, and have been wanting to try different flavors since then. This one is saved!

  3. YUM! Those look so good! I’ve never been a deviled egg person, but lately I’ve been thinking they might be pretty tasty!

  4. These look, and sound, DELICIOUS. I’m a big fan of devilled eggs from waaay back.

    My wife, not as much. I might have to do some begging, but the recipe is unique enough I bet I can convince her to try them.

    Great post!

  5. This looks really good! Love the photography 😉

  6. I can’t remember ever having a deviled egg. They look good and sound tasty. I like the sound of the chipotle in them. Bookmarked to try.

  7. Looks delicious!


  8. I love devilled eggs, though I have only made them once since starting my blog. A pity, when there are so many good variations. I will have to try this! You really do have a way with eggs.

  9. Ah, what a brilliant combination! I want to eat some now. 🙂

  10. Yummy, I love deviled eggs and I am going to try this with some chipotle peppers I have frozen in adobo.

    I won’t be able to eat but one though, dieting, and that will be hard.

    I have found with my computer problems I can’t participate in events very often. Sometimes I can’t even read or comment certain blogs. Maybe someday if I upgrade.

  11. Mmmm, love deviled eggs and now totally craving them. These look delicious, Kalyn!

  12. I have never tried deviled eggs, Kalyn – these look wonderful!

  13. Thanks guys for the compliments about the Livestrong napkin ring! I had so much fun thinking of what to do with the wristband.

    Lydia, when I was researching for my post about how to make hard boiled eggs I learned that fresh eggs are harder to peel. Once the eggs are a little older, the white membrane separates from the shell a little, making them easier to peel. Who knew?

  14. I’ve also heard that you shouldn’t use very fresh eggs for deviled eggs. Why is that?

  15. I echo the kudos to your for incorporating the wristband. As for the deviled eggs, thiscould come in handy post-Greek Easter when eggs abound, waiting to be eaten up.

  16. LiveSTRONG! I am not a big fan of boiled eggs, but this might convert me ^_^

  17. Fabulous–and I’m glad I still have time to do this! Thank you for the bracelet!

  18. Kalyn, I wholeheartedly agree with Peter G — what a terrific way to use the wristband! This recipe sounds fabulous…I’m such a fan of deviled eggs, and now you’ve got me craving them. Yum!

  19. What a great recipe for such a worthwhile event. I love the use of chipotle chili and lime. Great tang and spice. And I have to say thats a clever way to use the wristband in the picture.

  20. Time for lunch and now I’m craving devilled eggs:) They look and sound delicious. I love how you’ve used the wristband. Very clever Kalyn.
    Thanks for supporting LiveSTRONG With A Taste Of Yellow.
