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?!

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!

Southwestern Deviled Eggs Recipe from Primally Inspired (Paleo)
  • 12 hardboiled eggs (hard-boiled egg tutorial HERE)

  • 1 green onion, both white and green parts, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon cilantro, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • sea salt & pepper, to taste
  • 1 jalapeño, thinly sliced
  1. Slice your hard-boiled eggs in half lengthwise. Scoop out the yolks and put them in a bowl.
  2. In the yolk bowl, add in the mayonnaise, green onion, cilantro, chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Mash and stir until thoroughly mixed together.
  3. Place a dollop of the yolk mixture into the hollowed out egg whites. Continue until all the yolk mixture has been used and all the whites have been filled. Top each deviled egg with a thinly sliced jalapeño.
  4. Eat and enjoy immediately or refrigerate until ready to eat.
We love to serve these alongside some homemade guacamole (recipe HERE). You can even put a dollop of guac right on top, too!

    These look great! Im also a big fan of southwestern food! These will make a great super bowl snack….along side my favorite guacamole of course. By the way, your recipes are amazing….you have inspired me to start a paleo blog, any tips would be appreciated:-)

    These are delicious! I have never really strayed from my mom’s traditional deviled eggs I grew up with, but I really like these! They are a perfect pairing with one of my favorite snacks – guacamole with veggies for dipping and my favorite salsa. These really make it a meal. And yes, we could be friends because I love southwestern/mexican type food. 🙂 It’s by far my favorite!

    Yum, this would be a perfect idea for a potluck! Though maybe not cause I’d probably eat all of them before I ever got them to the potluck… hmmm 🙂

    Yay!! These look amazing!! I love Deviled Eggs. They’re our “bring to a party” go to. And I’m growing cilantro in my herb garden this year wondering what different ways to use it. This is perfect! Thanks for another great recipe, Kelly!! I love your blog! It’s so refreshing to find a healthy lifestyle blog that I feel includes those of us who aren’t into a hippy lifestyle. Nothing wrong with it, but I’m just not and feel very at home here with my black Clash tshirts,, 😉
