Southwestern Deviled Eggs Recipe
These Southwestern Deviled Eggs have been pretty much my favorite food for the last couple of weeks. I’ve been making a batch or two ahead of time and then eating them for a snack or for a small lunch when I need something quick (okay, maybe I’ve even eaten them for breakfast and dinner, too). I love these babies and can’t get enough of them!
Let’s face it, regular deviled eggs can get super boring. I’m a huge fan of Southwest flavors (and if you are, too, well then we are two peas in a pod and we’re going to be great friends) so I thought I’d spice things up a bit and create a southwestern version of deviled eggs. Because if I’ve learned one thing from eating all these years, it’s that you can never go wrong with southwestern flavors. Am I right?!
And what a great idea that was if I don’t say so myself 🙂 As soon as I took one bite, I knew I had a winner on my hands.
These Southwestern Deviled Eggs are now my go-to party food. And it turns out I’m not the only one who is crazy about them. They’ve been a huge hit with everyone so far!
So if you are looking for a change of pace from regular deviled eggs or if you need a healthy and filling snack or lunch option, give these Southwestern Deviled Eggs a try! I think you’ll love them just as much as me 🙂
