Fiery Deviled Eggs

Fiery Deviled Eggs
One of the tastiest meals my Mom used to make was her famous potato salad that was always accompanied by deviled eggs. I like to spice things up, so I recently made a not so traditional, mayonnaise-free, fiery version to go along with a Mexican Potato Salad for a satisfying summer meal. With the addition of habenaro powder, these eggs are quite spicy, but the egg whites help to balance the heat, and the heat is further tempered if you serve them with potatoes.

Fiery Deviled EggsIf you don't have a piping bag, then a good alternative is to simply cut off a corner of a small ziploc bag. Load the bag with your mixture and squeeze into the egg whites. Thanks to my Dad for this tip. As I have noted in a previous post, you miss out on the fancy nibs that come with traditional piping bags, but you also avoid all the clean up and fuss.
