Jalapeno Popper Deviled Eggs are flavored with cream cheese, jalapenos, and bacon and make a fantastic appetizer for Easter.
Deviled Eggs are one of my very favorite foods. It’s hard to resist that creamy center and food is so much more fun when you can pick it up and eat it with your fingers. I love playing with different Deviled Egg flavor combinations. You really can’t go wrong with plain deviled eggs, but I also love these Crab Deviled Eggs and Red Pepper Jelly and Bacon Deviled Eggs.
Jalapeno Popper Deviled Eggs are perfect for when you want deviled eggs with a little kick. I use fresh jalapenos that I mince and cook briefly in the grease that is leftover from frying the bacon, along with a little garlic. That way they are not crunchy when you bite into them and they pick up some bacon flavor.
Instead of fresh jalapenos you could use pickled jalapenos if you like the flavor.

These are delicious. I will only be making these deviled eggs from now on. I did do 1 thing different from the original recipe. I had pickled jalapenos and used that instead of fresh and omitted the ACV. Thanks for a great recipe.
This is a great recipe. I’m about to make these for the 3rd time.
These came out delicious. I only had pickled jalapeños (30g) and I used thick cut bacon. When I make them again I’m going to add a little more cayenne because I really like spicy.
Absolutely delicious!! A must at all our family gatherings.
I sprinkled Siracusa Powder on top at the end. Loved em. Thank you.
Do you think I could sub the mayo with full fat greek yogurt?
Is this a gluten-free recipe? Thanks!
I made this recipe for something different and I was not a fan of the cream cheese mixed in. It wasn’t a good combination of ingredients.
