jalapeno pepper, minced

I made these for a family gathering a few weeks ago after reading the recipe on here. Everyone loved them. I only used the jalapeno pepper because that is all I had on hand at the time. We had another family gathering a few days ago and I was asked to make them again so this time I used the habanero also and they really liked them. I have a feeling that I will be making these for every family gathering now.
I omitted the habanero pepper simply because after buying one, it disappeared. Anyhow, that must be the important key to this recipe because I found it very bland. I tried a little more paprika, that helped. I think 1 tablespoon of mustard instead of 1 teaspoon would greatly improve this recipe. This recipe did not impress me. I won't be using this recipe in the future.
These were very good, and definitely a different twist to the deviled egg. I only used jalapeno peppers, only because I didn't have a habanero, but next time I will add that also. With the addition of that pepper, these are going to be HOT, because they had a strong zip to them just with the jalapeno. I did add a bit more mayo than suggested, and I think it made it too loose if you were going to pipe these through a tip. I will make these again, they are nice change from the classic deviled egg recipe of my own. Thanks for sharing (:
Made these for family dinner and they went in minutes! Everybody loved them, even the 2 year olr (ours weren't too hot, not sure if our peppers were a little tame). Great recipe!! :)
Delicious but I left out the jalapeno because we didn't have any. The 1/4 habanero I used was plenty. The little fiery bits are the perfect kick.
EDITED 1/15/09: I am addicted now and buy eggs just to make this. I don't even share. I am using more and more habanero each time and tried a little jalapeno this time.
For you spice lovers... this recipe is great... I make these all the time as an appetizer... people love them! Thanks! Guess what Im doing with my easter eggs?? lol
I got this same recipe from a friend about a year ago-I had NEVER had a deviled egg before, I just didn't think I would like it. BUT-I tried one of these and was HOOKED! I still don't think I would like a regular plain deviled egg, but I buy eggs just to make these, they're FANTASTIC! I make it with the exact recipe as written, but use a spicy brown mustard instead of yellow.
These turned out really good and were a nice change from the ordinary ones. I de-seeded the jalapeno out of fear they'd be too hot but I should have left them in as the recipe called for. Thank you for this different variety and I will definitely makes these again!
