Smoky Tomato-Bacon-Chipotle Deviled Eggs
 
Prep time
Total time
 
Please note that the prep time does not include the time it takes to hard boil the eggs, which is about 15 minutes. (Here's How to Hard Boil Eggs.)
Serves: Makes 1 dozen
Ingredients
  • 2 strips bacon
  • 6 hard boiled eggs, peeled (Here's How to Hard Boil Eggs)
  • 3 tablespoons Crema Mexicana
  • 1 tablespoon of chipotle pepper adobo sauce, seeds removed
  • 2 tablespoon finely chopped tomatoes, seeds removed - divided
  • 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste (Here's How to Season to Taste)
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped chives
Instructions
  1. Add the bacon to a sauté pan over medium heat. Cook until it's brown and crisp, about 3 minutes per side. Remove it from the pan. Set it aside to drain a double layer of paper towels.
  2. On a clean dry surface, carefully slice the eggs in half lengthwise. Very gently remove the yolks from each egg half and add them to a small mixing bowl.
  3. Place the empty egg white halves on a serving platter - round side down. If they slice around too much, you can very gently slice a sliver off of the bottom to make a base -- being sure not to cut through to the opening!
  4. Use a fork to mash the yolks and then add the Crema Mexicana and adobo sauce (from chipotle peppers in adobo sauce).
  5. Crumble the bacon into tiny pieces and add half of it to the yolk mixture. Then add 1 tablespoon of the tomatoes and the oil, and mix until everything is evenly blended. Now season to taste with salt and pepper. (Here's How to Season to Taste.)
  6. With two teaspoons or a tiny cookie scoop (about 1-inch), equally divide yolk mixture into the openings of the egg white halves.
  7. Add the remaining half of the crumbled bacon and the 1 tablespoon of tomatoes to a small bowl. Stir in the chives and mix. Add a bit of this mixture to the top of each egg.
  8. Serve!

    YESSS smoky food is the best! I specifically loooove hot smoked paprika – my all time favorite seasoning! These look delicious. I haven’t made or eaten deviled eggs in forever but I need to make them asap!

    Deviled Eggs are the best and there’s definitely not been enough of them in my life to date! These sound thoroughly delicious and I’m so keen to experiment with the smoky flavour. Just wondering, do you ever use liquid smoke? We’ve used it to make amazing smoky pulled pork and smoky bolognese ragu!

      I’ve never worked with liquid smoke before, but I must try it. Hope you try these eggs. Enjoy! 🙂

      Thanks, Brian! I love deviled eggs — I hadn’t had them for the longest time and had forgotten how delicious they are! Happy Holidays!

    I used to have devilled eggs all the time when I was younger. My parents made them for parties. I love how you’ve made them extra special.
