Ingredients

  • 12 jumbo eggs hard boiled
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1-2 small fresh jalapenos quantity and size depend on how spicy you want them
  • 1/2 cup cooked bacon

Instructions

  • Prepare hard boiled eggs. Chill. Remove shells. Use a sharp knife to slice in half lengthwise. Remove yolks and place in small bowl and take care not to tear egg white.
  • Mash yolks with a fork. Add mayonnaise and stir well until creamy and smooth.
  • Remove stem, veins and seeds from jalapenos. Mince into tiny pieces. Stir into egg yolk mixture.
  • Prepare bacon ends and pieces until perfectly crisp. Take a handful of bacon and dice into tiny pieces, reserving some pieces to garnish the top and of course just to eat because everyone loves bacon. Add to the yolk and jalapeno mixture. Stir well to combine.
  • This mixture doesn't pipe well through a small opening. I found the easiest way to get it into the egg is to add it to a small plastic bag, snip the corner, and squeeze the bag until you get the desired amount into each egg white. Alternatively, use a spoon to add the filling to the egg white.
  • Top with additional pieces of bacon. Keep chilled.

Cooking tips and tricks for this recipe:

  • Its important to stick some larger pieces of the bacon on top because if people know there's bacon in your deviled eggs, they will be devoured. 
  • Typically I like to pipe my filling into the cooked egg white half because it just looks pretty, but the little pieces of bacon tend to clog the piping tip. For this reason, I use two small spoons to "scoop and scrape" the egg yolk filling into the egg white.
  • To cook the bacon, either dice bacon ends and pieces or slices of bacon into small pieces and then cook in a pan on the stove, or you can dice already cooked bacon. Just be sure to make it extra crispy... even if you prefer chewy bacon.
