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.

SPICY DEVILED EGG INGREDIENTS

The secret to the “spice” is a combination of two things; hot sauce and mustard. If you want to really turn up the heat you can also stir in finely diced jalapeno. We have made it with and without. Both versions taste incredible.

  • Eggs: Large eggs are what work best, however any egg will do.
  • Mustard: Ok, hear me out. Dijon mustard will send this recipe over the top. SO DANG GOOD. But you can use yellow mustard if you prefer.
  • Mayonnaise: Opt for a quality mayo, or one that you know you love the flavor of. We lean towards Best Foods.
  • Worcestershire Sauce: Weird, I know. But trust me when I say this adds just the right amount of flavor to the filling.
  • Hot Sauce: We have tried this with dozens of sauces. The two fan favorites are Cholula or Sriracha.
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Jalapeno: Optional, but adds flavor and a kick.

HELPFUL TIPS

Can you make deviled eggs ahead of time?

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

What is the best way to store this recipe?

Once you have made and assembled your eggs, the best way to keep them fresh is inside an airtight container stored in the refrigerator.

Are there other flavor variations?

Yes! While we love this post as written, there are a few variations that are requested for parties.
Chipotle: Add a pinch of chipotle chili powder the the filling.
Relish: Add a spoonful of relish for a spicy pickle version.
Jalapeno: Finely dice jalapeno and stir into the filling, or sprinkle on top as a garnish.

Do I have to use paprika on deviled eggs?

No, but it does give it a beautiful finish and slight flavor boost. Not a fan? Leave it off.

Best way to fill deviled eggs?


We have found that the best way to fill deviled eggs, and even mix the filling, is to place the ingredients inside of a ziptop bag. Seal the bag closed and mix the filling until combined. Snip one of the corners and gently squeeze the filling into the halved eggs.
