This appetizer recipe is usually one of the most popular that I make. I am reposting it for Easter 2010.
It is from my recipe box; I have no idea where it originated.
Feel free to add everything to your personal tastes.
12 hard boiled eggs
1/2 cup mayo
1/4 cup finely shredded cheddar cheese
2 T sliced pickled jalapeno peppers, minced
1 T green onion, minced
1 T cilantro, snipped
1 t mustard (use your favorite variety)
1/4 t ground cumin
salt to taste
chili powder for garnish
sprigs of cilantro for garnish
Cut the eggs in half lengthwise; carefully remove yolks to a small bowl. Mash egg yolks; stir in mayonnaise and the rest of the ingredients (except chili powder and sprigs of cilantro); stir to blend well.
Spoon or pipe yolk mixture evenly into egg white halves.
Garnish with chili powder and cilantro sprigs.
Refrigerate at least an hour before serving. If you can wait that long.
