Spicy deviled eggs have a kick of sriracha, a pinch of cayenne, a little mustard and relish for a deviled egg combo that brings the heat. Deviled eggs are a crowd favorite on any holiday table or part of any party spread. There’s so many great variations, obviously classic deviled eggs, but also jalapeno popper deviled eggs, BLT deviled eggs, and the spicy deviled eggs I’m sharing today!

This recipe is a variation of a classic deviled egg recipe, just tweaked a bit and with a few added ingredients.

Let’s talk heat. This recipe isn’t crazy hot.  It’s one of those things that you feel the warmth, not the burn. But if you like crazy hot, you can always add more Cayenne pepper! Likewise, if you would like to tone them back, just omit the cayenne pepper altogether.

Making deviled eggs step by step

Step 1. Start by slicing your hardboiled eggs in half and removing the yolks. 

Step 2 . I like mixing the filling for my deviled eggs in a Ziploc bag. Just add the yolks with the rest of the ingredients and smash it until it’s smooth! Or combine in a bowl if you prefer.

Step 3. Snip off the end of the bag and pipe the filling into the eggs. Easy-peasy. 

Step 4. Finish your spicy deviled eggs by garnishing them with a slice of sweet pickle, a sprinkle of cayenne, or a drizzle of sriracha to let people know these aren’t your average devilled egg.
