Low carb deviled eggs recipe with sriracha 🌶

Serves 12.  Ready in 45 minutes.


✓ 12 large eggs

✓ 6 tablespoons mayonnaise

✓ 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard

✓ 4 teaspoons Sriracha hot sauce

✓ 2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lime juice

✓ 2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh cilantro

✓ Paprika

✓ Kosher salt

✓ Freshly ground black pepper


1. Hard-boil the eggs: (i) place raw eggs in a large saucepan — all eggs should rest on the bottom of the pan in a single layer; (ii) cover eggs with cold water — the surface of the water should be ~1 inch above the eggs; (iii) cover saucepan and bring water to a rapid boil over high heat; (iv) turn off the heat & leave the eggs in the covered saucepan on the stove for 10 minutes.

2. Cool & peel the eggs: (i) run cold water over the eggs until they are no longer warm; (ii) allow them to stand until they have cooled completely; (iii) peel the shells from the eggs.

4. Make the filling: (i) combine yolks, mayo, mustard, sriracha, lime juice, & cilantro in a bowl and blend together well (by hand or using a food processor — turns out great either way!); (2) add salt & pepper to taste, if needed.

5. Evenly spoon the filling into the egg white halves. Top with a dash of paprika and chopped cilantro leaves for garnish.
