Servings: 12 pieces
- 6 hard boiled eggs
- 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt (or sour cream)
- 1 tsp chopped chipotle peppers in adobo
- 1 tsp lime juice
- pinch salt
Cook and peel your eggs if they are not already. Cut the hard boiled eggs in half lengthwise. Scoop the cooked yolks out and put in a small bowl. Set the whites aside.
Add the sour cream, chopped chipotle, lime juice, and salt to the yolk bowl. Mash the yolks to your desired consistency and mix all of the ingredients together. Add additional chipotle, lime, and salt to taste. You can refrigerate the mixture and egg whites separately until ready to serve.
Scoop the mixture into each egg yolk half. Garnish with cilantro and chipotle if desired.
These eggs have a milder kick. Make it spicier by adding more chipotle. Taste as you go, as each jar will be different, until you get your preferred heat level.
I like to use plain Greek yogurt because it is a healthier option and does not interfere with the taste of the eggs. You can also use sour cream to stick with the Mexican food theme or mayonnaise.
