Chipotle Deviled Eggs

Savory Sweet and Satisfying: Chipotle Deviled Eggs

I love, love, love deviled eggs!!! They are so delicious and yummy!!

So when I some how stumbled upon this recipe many months ago I knew I had to make it. However waiting until Easter was going to be torture, absolute torture. Then a few months later I had a thought... why do I have to wait for Easter? Um...because that is when you make deviled eggs?

Growing up that was the only time of year we had deviled eggs. Makes sense because typically you have a bunch of hard boiled eggs on hand and using them to make deviled eggs is a good way to use them up. So I guess I got it into my head that deviled eggs are an Easter thing.

Once I convinced myself that I could actually make and enjoy deviled eggs anytime of the year, I had these made and my family and I were enjoying them in no time. Such a wonderfully tasty way to change up the traditional deviled egg.
