Jalapeño Popper Deviled Eggs

Deviled Eggs are one of those appetizers that you can take anywhere and everyone will love them.

They’re super fun to experiment with and come up with new varieties and flavors too. I’m in love with these Jalapeño Popper Deviled Eggs because they combine two of my favorites into one!

I combined protein rich cream cheese, diced jalapeños, shredded cheddar cheese and a little sour cream with the egg yolks to create an ultra creamy and delicious filling for my egg whites. All the delicious dairy added to the filling makes these a protein packed appetizer that everyone can enjoy!

I even threw in a dash or two of cayenne pepper to give it even more zip!

Since a jalapeño popper isn’t complete without that crispy crunch on the outside, I toasted up some panko bread crumbs with some garlic powder in a little butter and then sprinkled them on top of the deviled eggs.

It adds the perfect crunch and texture!

To finish them off I simply dusted each one with a little more cayenne pepper. I don’t think deviled eggs are complete without a little red on top.

So if you’re looking for a fun new way to eat your deviled eggs, then try this tasty combination!
