- 1 jalapeño, minced
- 1 cup mayonnaise
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 bunch cilantro, chopped
- 1 cup mustard
- 1/4 cup hot sauce
- Salt and pepper, to taste
How to Hard-Boil Eggs
If you don't know how to properly hard-boil an egg, this section is for you! If you do know how, continue to the next step.
- First, fill a medium-sized pot with your 10 uncooked eggs.
- Add water, just enough to cover the tops of all your eggs.
- Turn your stove top onto high, and allow the water to come to a rolling boil.
- Turn the heat to low, and allow your eggs to sit in the water for about 15 minutes before removing them from the water.
- Give them an ice bath, let them cool off for about 20 minutes.
- Now, you're ready to peel them and move on!
Step 1: Make Deviled Eggs
- Hard boil your eggs and cut them in half. Scoop the yolks out, and set them to the side in a mixing bowl. Lay out your egg white halves on a sheet tray or other clean flat surface.
- Add your hot sauce, chopped cilantro, mustard, jalapeño, and mayonnaise to the mixing bowl with the yolks and mix thoroughly. The mix should be thick. Add salt and pepper.
- Now you're ready to pipe your mix into your egg white halves. If you don't have a piping bag, you can spoon your mix into them, or you can make a piping bag by laying out three sheets of plastic wrap on your counter on top of each other, spooning your mix onto the plastic. You can grab each corner and lift, then tie the top. Now you can poke a hole into the bottom and pipe your mix into the egg halves.
