Jalapeño Popper Deviled Eggs (Dairy Free & Paleo)

Jalapeño Popper Deviled Eggs | Paleo, Dairy Free, Low Carb by Strive to Thrive Nutrition

I don’t like football. I’m the odd man woman out in a family of sports nuts. So needless to say, I have no vested interest in the outcome of this weekend’s Super Bowl game (who’s even playing??). But my sister holds a viewing part every year and Matt and I always end up going– him to actually watch the game and me to socialize and eat chips.

Whether you’re a sports fan or not, it’s pretty easy to get excited about game-day snacks like buffalo wings, guacamole and pizza. The idea for these Jalapeño Popper Deviled Eggs came to me as I thought about all the tasty snacks I’d like to eat, but really shouldn’t (i.e. fried stuff with cheese). There’s nothing worse than going to a party to watch football (eye roll) and also being stuck with nothing good to eat! So I made these mostly for myself, but also to share.

Creamy, bacony, and spicy, these deviled eggs will fit in perfectly alongside the usual Super Bowl Sunday fare. And while your typical jalapeño poppers are stuffed with cream cheese, these kicked-up eggs are actually dairy free thanks to the amazingly wonderful Kite Hill dairy free chive cream cheese, made from almonds! You can find their products at your local Whole Foods Market.

Instructions
  1. First, hard boil the eggs. Use your favorite method or use mine: Place eggs in a pot and cover with cold water. Set pot over high heat and bring to a boil. Once boiling, cover pot and remove from the heat. Let sit 8 minutes. Drain and place the eggs in cold water.
  2. Meanwhile, cook the bacon until crisp using your favorite method or mine: Preheat oven to 350℉. Line rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or foil and arrange bacon slices on top. Cook until crisp, about 15-20 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool. Reserve one slice of bacon. Finely chop remaining 3 slices.
  3. Carefully peel the eggs, then cut in half and carefully remove the yolks.
  4. Add yolks, cream cheese and mayo to the bowl of your stand mixer. Mix with the paddle attachment until creamy. You can also use a hand mixer.
  5. Add diced jalapeños, chopped bacon, onion powder, garlic powder and paprika. Mix well. Taste and add salt if needed.
  6. Arrange egg halves on a platter.
  7. Add the jalapeño popper filling to a piping bag (or a ziplock bag with a hole snipped in the corner) and fill the eggs.
  8. Garnish with reserved bacon, sliced jalapeños and chopped chives (optional).
Recipe Notes

The eggs and filling can be made ahead of time. Store both in a sealed container and fill the eggs when you're ready to serve them.
