Crab and Chipotle Aioli Deviled Eggs

We took a month off of The Secret Recipe Club, but we're back!

This month I was assigned to the amazing blog, Authentic Suburban Gourmet. I've been a long time follower of Lisa's blog for forever now, and already had plenty of her recipes bookmarked to try. But it was so going through her archive and finding tons more. I seriously have about 50 recipes of hers to try! Not kidding. That means you need to go check out her blog right now!

Since I couldn't choose between tempting recipes like Pumpkin Seed Brittle, Brown Butter Nuts with Rosemary and Thyme, and Guinness Braised Short Ribs, I let PJ choose. 

Bam! He chose her Crab and Chipotle Aioli Deviled Eggs.  

 I'd say he chose well.

Crab and Chipotle Aioli Deviled Eggs
from Authentic Suburban Gourmet


  • 8 eggs
  • 4 tablespoons mayo
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
Hard boil the eight eggs and let cool to room temperature. Cut in half lengthwise and remove the yolk. Place into a bowl and break up with a fork until lumps are gone. Add the mayo, mustard and salt. Whisk with a fork until creamy. Taste and adjust seasoning if desired. Chill for one hour if desired.

Chipotle Aioli

  • 1/2 cup mayo
  • 1 tablespoon chives, finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, finely minced1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 large adobo chili
  • Salt and pepper
Add all of the above ingredients into a food processor until smooth. Taste and adjust seasoning as desired. Place into a container with a lid and refrigerate until ready to use.


  • 1/3 cup lump crab meat, or 16 slices of imitation
  • 1 tablespoon chives, minced
To assemble:

Place the egg halves onto a platter. Put the egg yolk mixture into a piping bag and pipe into the egg halves. Then top each one with a pinch or slice of crab. Add a tiny dollop of the chipotle aioli and garnish with a pinch of chives. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Printable Recipe

We used imitation crab because we're cheapos. I sauteed the crab in some butter to give it some flavor and so it wasn't just cold crab. Next time I think I'll splurge and try it with real crab. PJ was nervous about using it this time because sometimes it can be too fishy for him, he says. That boy! This time though I felt it could use more of a crab taste. So if you can, go with the real crab and not the imitation stuff.

The chipotle aioli was amazing! I'm trying to find other things that I can smother with this sauce.

Basically. Make these. Super Bowl is coming up and I'd say these would be a great item to add to your menu. 

Linking up here.

Peace, and bacon grease!

@ Rhonda - Great minds think alike! We were sending each other vibes :)

@ Christine - I love adding fonts to my photos... I have been doing it for quite some time actually, before pinterest. Then I stopped for awhile but started again... I like to have one photo with text if I have enough photos to choose from :) But yes it does help those on pinterest know what they are looking at!

oh my goodness, these look divine! I love deviled eggs, but am always afraid to spice them up. thanks for sharing on Foodie Friday

Chris said...

Oooh, like these. If I make it, I'd probably make a bit of remoulade instead of the aioli for a New Orleans twist.

Miz Helen said...

Hi Desi,
What a great idea and a fabulous appetizer, just perfect for the Big Game Day. Hope you have a great weekend and thanks for sharing your tasty recipe with Full Plate Thursday.
Come Back Soon!

Cheryl @ That's What Che Said said...

These look ah-mazing! My mouth is watering! Thanks for linking up to Monday Funday! I am pinning this for sure! Hope to see you back this weekend! xoxo - Cheryl

Unknown said...

seriously. you put crab in deviled eggs. OR you made crab and then put deviled eggs on it. I'm convinced that you "put an egg on it" and anything can be great. you just took crab to a whole other level. and that's sayin a lot because crab is already super fantastical!

happy src reveal! xo, kristy
