February's Secret Recipe Club - Southwestern Deviled Eggs

Hey there! I've missed you.

We skipped January, but we're back this month for The Secret Recipe Club. And boy am I glad... I was having minor withdrawals. I'm so excited to spread the news... I had the wonderful blog The Freshman Cook, which meant I had tons of recipes to choose from! So many that I'll eventually make anyways I'm sure, like S'mores Rice Krispie Treats, Pecan Bars, and a Mashed Potato Bowl like KFC's. I'll take em all, please! But I finally settled on a side item... these delicious Southwestern Deviled Eggs.

Southwestern Deviled Eggs

Cuz I love deviled eggs.

I liked the flavors in these. I used two green onions instead of one because there can almost never be too many. We also left out the paprika and avocado. Avocado would be extra nice, next time I think I'll try that.

Southwestern Deviled Eggs
adapted from The Freshman Cook
  • 6 eggs
  • 1/2 cup mayo
  • 1/2 tsp ground mustard
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/4 tsp chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 2 chopped green onions
  • fresh cilantro
Place 6 eggs in a pot of cold water and place on the stove. Bring to a boil. Boil for 15 minutes. Put the pot under cold running water to cool the eggs and stop them from cooking.

Peel each egg, and then cut them in half lengthwise.

Put the yolks in a medium bowl, and put the whites to the side. Smash the yolks with a fork. Add the mayo, spices, and green onion. Mix together. Stuff the filling into each egg. Garnish each egg with cilantro.

Peace, and bacon grease!

Desi-Thanks for all your nice words! I like how you adapted the recipe, and I want to try your version soon! How are things in Cincinnati? It is my hometown, and sometimes I miss it, but not in the winter! :). I am a new follower!

Trisha said...

Deviled eggs is one of my favorites too. What I absolutely love is your serving plate - soooo adorable! Visiting you from group B.

Cathy said...

Is there anyone who doesn't love a good deviled egg. They are always the first thing to go at any family gathering. Love the Southwestern touch you have given them.

Rhonda said...

The Freshman cook was my first SRC assignment...she has a special place in my heart! Deviled eggs last a split second in my house and the SW flavor is amazing!

heidi said...

I am absolutely in love with the plate - it is just too cute!
And the eggs - they look really amazing. Another item for my long list of things to try - never had deviled eggs before, but I'll save your recipe for Easter :-)

Eggs are a BIG deal around my house. We have about 7 dozen in our fridge right now because we have chickens in our backyard. Everyone I've ever met loves deviled eggs - even people who don't like eggs cooked for breakfast for some reason like deviled eggs. In our house we call them Heaven eggs because they are so heavenly! :)

I think I'd would like the addition of the spring onions and avocado. I'm gonna have to try. Good pick for SRC.

That's perfect. Just after buying 3 dozen eggs, we were given 2 dozen yesterday so I have to cook a butt load of eggs this week, lol. Hard boiled eggs, egg salad, deviled eggs, you name it.
