Mexican Deviled Eggs

With two young children, my husband and I live on a beautiful lake and host lots of summer picnics and cookouts. I adapted this recipe to suit our tastes. Folks who are expecting the same old deviled eggs are surprised when they try this delightful tangy variation. —Susan Klemm, Rhinelander, Wisconsin

    I made these last minute to take to a Cinco de Mayo party and they quickly disappeared. I tweaked just a little by adding a pinch of granulated garlic, chipotle chili powder and cayenne, then garnished with a single cilantro leaf. De-lish!

    I made these eggs with pineapple chipotle salsa and chives. Delicious. Thank you, Susan, for sharing this recipe.

    Deliciously different twist on an old standard. It was a hit with my group!

    Instead of mayo I used cream cheese. Overall the eggs were bland. I'd like to make them again but will add some needed zing to them. Maybe more salt, cilantro, chili powder?

    Some of the best deviled eggs I've ever tasted. My boyfriend surprised me with these on National Deviled Egg Day....a great twist on the traditional deviled egg.

    This recipe is great...adds a different twist to the "traditional" deviled eggs. I thought the salsa added just enough flavor (and crunch), I used a mexican cheese blend, since that is what I had on hand. I would make this again, and I don't even like deviled eggs! Thanks for sharing!

    I wouldn't eat deviled eggs until I tried this recipe. It's awesome! My family always asks me to make it when we have big get togethers.

    DO NOT listen to the two that say this is a bad recipe. You may not like it, but I am thankful I went ahead and tried it - I LOVED IT!I did not use near the salsa it calls for, and I added a few shots of Tabasco. That way I got the kick of salsa without a really tangy flavor.Great addition to Mexican night at the house.

    Sorry; but, these were horrible. I agree with parksville. Even my husband who is known for eating anything hated these. My next door neighbor and I often exchange recipes; so, I had her try one. She made an ugly face and said "this is awful". Putting Salsa in them does not make them "Mexican flavors".
