Why are they called deviled eggs?
Do you know the difference between deviled and stuffed eggs?
Deviled refers to any stuffed egg recipe that uses mustard, pepper, or any other ingredient to spice up the ingredients that are stuffed into the yolk cavity.
So if your classic deviled egg recipe isn't spicy, it's just a stuffed egg that's on your deviled egg tray.
Keto deviled egg ingredients
- hard-boiled eggs - cut in half with egg yolks removed
- roasted red peppers
- red wine vinegar
- sriracha sauce
- ground chipotle pepper
How to make this recipe
1. Combine the cooked egg yolks, roasted red peppers, mayonnaise, vinegar, sriracha sauce, and salt in a mini-food processor or blender.
2. Pulse until well blended and creamy.
3. Place the egg mixture into a piping bag. Pipe egg mixture into egg white halves.
4. Garnish with more ground chipotle pepper or sriracha sauce, if desired.
5. Serve immediately or refrigerate for up to 2 days in an airtight container.
Is mayonnaise OK for keto diets?
If you're doing the keto diet, mayo is a great way to add fat to your menu.
Just check the label to look for any sugar added to the ingredients. Most mayonnaise brands have less than 1 gram of sugar.
For this keto deviled eggs recipe, you can also use a keto-friendly or low carb mayo like:
- Primal Kitchen, Mayo with Avocado Oil
- Chosen Foods Classic Avocado Oil Mayo
- Sir Kensington's Mayonnaise Avocado Oil Mayo
You can buy these online or at your local grocery store.
Where do I get roasted red peppers?
To cool down the heat and add some vegetable goodness and color, I added roasted red peppers to the spicy deviled eggs recipe.
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, with Oven Roasted Vegetables, or mixed into stir fries.
How much sriracha?
Since I’m not into spicy deviled eggs like my son, I made this easy recipe rather mild. Add more sriracha sauce if you like to this simple recipe.
However, all sriracha sauces have sugar in them. This keto deviled eggs recipe doesn’t use much, so I don’t think you should worry about the added sugar.
You could use a low sugar, no carbs brand like June Moon Spice Company Spice Company Sriracha Sauce if you like to spice things up!
How do you fill the eggs?
I think it’s easiest to transfer the filling to a pastry bag and pipe it into the egg whites.
You can also do this with a plastic bag. Just fill a plastic food bag with the deviled egg filling. Seal tightly. Then snip off a bit of the corner of the baggie. Then carefully squeeze the filling into the egg halves.
Or if you want, use a spoon to scoop the filling into the eggs.
Add some garnish!
For the garnish, you can add more heat with a sprinkle of paprika or ground black pepper. Or try adding more ground chipotle pepper to these low carb deviled eggs.
Serve more sriracha sauce on the side for some extra flavor.
How to serve this best deviled eggs recipe

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 hard boiled eggs in your pressure cooker.
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 rolling boil.
3. Turn off heat. Keep the pan on the stove top and cover.
If your stove top doesn't retain heat when turned off, then lower the temp to low, simmer for a minute, and then turn it off.
4. Let eggs cook in the hot water for 12 minutes.
5. Bring pot over to sink, uncover and rinse eggs under cold water until they are cool enough to handle.
6. Remove eggs from pot with a slotted spoon. Place on a paper towel and blot dry.
7. Then peel then eggs when they're still warm to the touch. They'll peel easier than when they're cold.
8. Rinse any shell pieces or membranes off of eggs. Slice eggs in half with a sharp knife, remove yolks, and prepare eggs as directed.
If you have extra hard boiled eggs, save them for a salad or make a quick egg salad sandwich!
