Everytime I think of deviled eggs, I’m reminded of my great great grandma. Almost every holiday or family gathering we had involved her deviled eggs recipe. In fact, she passed her “secret” recipe down to me. I mean, it’s only fair. I used sit at her kitchen table and peel the shell off of hard boiled eggs while she whipped up the secret “sauce” of a filling. The devilishly delicious part. To this day I cannot match her recipe, even though I know it by heart. But at least I try. I think that’s how it’s supposed to be though, ya know? You learn a family recipe then you tweak it a bit to make it your own. Then so on and so on. Would you agree?
Which brings me to this recipe. My DEVILED EGGS recipe. This recipe definitely has a “bolder ” flavor than my Nana’s, but it’s still simple, delicious, and easy to make. Yep, this is a real food made easy classic recipe with a Mexican twist! It’s perfect for holidays like Easter, Thanksgiving, or Christmas. Make them for potlucks, summer parties, brunch and more.
I may be bias, but this dish has now become is my favorite Whole30 and Paleo-friendly deviled eggs recipe! Oh soooo devilish indeed. Don’t tell my nana. Mmm k?
Now, you know let’s talk about the process of making this appetizer. Starting with the most difficulte part. Ha! Peeling hard boiled eggs.
How do you hard boil eggs so they peel easily?
If you are like me (even to this day), you haven’t mastered the art of peeling hard boiled eggs. Peeling eggs is so time-consuming and messy, am I right? One wrong peel and the whole egg white could pull apart. ACK! That’s why I think you are going to fall hard for this easy eggs recipe! I mean, seriously hard, because if you make the Easy Deviled Eggs using my secret weapon, you won’t need to peel any eggs at all!
YES, you read that correctly. These hard-cooked eggs don’t require peeling! Well, let me rephrase. Since they are REAL eggs, they DO require peeling, but not by us because Eggland’s Best handles that mess for us!

How far in advance can I make deviled eggs?
This Easy Deviled Eggs recipe is perfect for parties because you can make the deviled eggs a few days in advance of when you want to serve them. To keep them looking fresh and for the best taste, I keep the filling in a separate container from the eggs. Then, on the morning of the event, I’ll assemble the easy deviled eggs. But no party is needed for these bad boys! Simple make a batch for snacks or light meal prepping for the week. I love me some tapas/small plate dinners! Don’t you?
