Thrill partygoers with these bone-chilling deviled eggs. The mayonnaise-filled bites are one of my favorite apps, so I had fun creating a Halloween version. —Nick Iverson, Milwaukee, Wisconsin

MAKES: 24 servings


  • 12 hard-cooked large eggs
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup roasted sweet red pepper strips, finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup finely crushed corn chips


  1. Cut eggs lengthwise in half. Remove yolks, reserving whites. In a small bowl, mash yolks. Stir in mayonnaise, peppers, mustard, vinegar, paprika, salt and pepper until blended.
  2. Using a straw, decorate each egg to make a skull with eyes, a nose and a mouth. Spoon or pipe yolk mixture into egg whites. Place crushed chips in a shallow bowl. Dip each exposed yolk into chips. Refrigerate, covered, until serving. Yield: 2 dozen.

Test Kitchen Tips
  • This zippy filling hits all the right notes, but your favorite deviled egg recipe will also work with this technique.
  • Feel free to nestle these into any chips you love.
  • To keep calories and carbs in check, substitute Greek yogurt for the mayonnaise and serve on a bed of shredded carrots.

    "These are adorable and perfect for Halloween! I added more mayo than called for in the recipe and only half the vinegar. Served them on a bed of corn chips as shown. Spooky, yummy and fun!! Everyone loved them!"
