I grew up on all-things spicy. If there is even remotely the possibility that hot sauce will taste good on a dish, I’ll add it.

Which is why I am so in love with these quick deviled eggs.

They have all of the creamy bold flavor of the classic, but a slight kick thanks to the addition of Dijon and hot sauce. SO GOOD. In fact, I served these spicy deviled eggs with jalapeno to my husband with no description and he proclaimed them a must-make side dish for ANY recipe.

Recipe Features

  • Quick and Easy Recipe- If you include the time it takes to boil the eggs, you’re looking at roughly 20 minutes!

Spicy Deviled Eggs Ingredients

The secret to the “spice” is a combination of two things; hot sauce and jalapeno. The pepper is completely optional. We have made it with and without. Both versions taste incredible.

  • Hard Boiled Eggs
  • Dijon Mustard
  • Mayonnaise
  • Worcestershire Sauce
  • Hot Sauce
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Jalapeno

Kitchen Tip: Not a fan of Dijon? Swap it with yellow mustard. I suggest you taste as you add.

Tips and FAQs

  • Use a ziptop bag with the corner snipped off for a quick DIY piping bag to get your filling into your eggs.
  • Sprinkle a little paprika or add some jalapeno to the top of the eggs for a pretty presentation.

How Far Ahead of Time Can You Make Deviled Eggs

You can fully make and assemble these up to two days in advance. They should be stored in an air tight container in the refrigerator until you are ready to eat and consumed within the two day timeframe.
