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!

Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  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.

Notes

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.
