More eggs, y’all! I made a bunch of deviled egg recipes one day before my husband left (best day of his life) and this was his favorite. He loves everything spicy so of course I knew he would love it. I did not, however, expect him to kill the whole batch within 30 minutes. It’s a pretty basic deviled egg recipe but you add a bunch of minced pickled jalapenos and then top it with another jalapeno slice. If you’re looking for a way to spice up your eggs, this is perfect! So who’s already dyed their eggs? We’re waiting until later this week, I think. Maybe sooner if I run out of ways to entertain the crazies. I had planned on doing the silk-dyed eggs but I never got around to searching for silk ties. Boo! Hopefully next year!
