You’ll love these Sriracha Deviled Eggs if you’re a fan of spicy deviled eggs. Or if you’re the type to douse your deviled eggs in sriracha or hot sauce.
We have a good friend, Barry, who is famous for his red hot deviled eggs. I’m not sure what Barry uses in his eggs, maybe Tabasco sauce, but they’re SPICY HOT! My son, Nathan, who is a connoisseur of all things spicy, loves Barry’s red hot deviled eggs.
Knowing so many of us will have hard boiled eggs after Easter, and March college basketball games to watch, I wanted to create a spicy deviled eggs recipe. But I didn’t want to make something that was 10 alarm crazy hot.
So here’s my sriracha deviled eggs recipe! Hope you and your guest love it.
Tips for making Sriracha Deviled Eggs
You can make your own roasted red peppers, but using jarred roasted red peppers makes this deviled egg recipe extremely easy. Use any leftover roasted red peppers in salads, on pasta, or diced and mixed into stir fries, rice or quinoa.
How much sriracha? Since I’m not into spicy deviled eggs like my son, I made this deviled egg recipe rather mild. Add more sriracha sauce if you like.
Mayo: Since this is a healthy deviled egg recipe, I suggest using a light mayonnaise. Since so many of them have somewhat “less than wholesome” ingredients, try using Kraft Mayonnaise with Olive Oil, which has half the fat and calories of regular mayonnaise and tastes great.
Vinegar: For an extra kick, I used a seasoned rice vinegar, which is also terrific in salad dressings.
Garnish: For the garnish, you can add more heat by sprinkling on smoked paprika or ground chipotle pepper, if you’re really adventurous. Serve more sriracha sauce on the side, too!
Serving spicy deviled eggs: If you have a crowd over to watch the games, you may want to get several egg plates to serve your deviled eggs on. I have my mom’s old classic glass egg plate and I found a few funky ones at thrift stores.
How to cook perfect hard boiled eggs
If you have an Instant Pot, use my method for Instant Pot Pressure Cooker Hard Boiled Eggs. It’s a terrific way for making big batches of eggs that come out perfectly each time!
Or use this foolproof way to make hard boiled eggs on the stovetop:
1. Put 8 or 9 eggs in a medium sized pot and cover with cold water.
2. Place pot on stove over high heat and bring to a boil.
3. Turn off heat. Remove pan from stove and cover.
4. Let eggs cook in the hot water for 11-12 minutes.
5. Bring pot over to sink, uncover and rinse eggs under cold water until they are cool enough to handle.
6. Place eggs in a bowl. Refrigerate for several hours, then peel.
7. Rinse any shell pieces or membranes off of eggs, cut in half with a sharp knife, remove yolks, and prepare eggs as directed.
