I made this recipe with 10 eggs to take to a neighborhood Chili Cook-off. They are so good and were gone in a minute. For 10 eggs, I doubled the filling ingredients and there was about 2/3 cup leftover and it was good as a dip with tortilla chips. I used reduced fat cheese and sour cream plus canola FF mayo.

Love the deviled eggs, something to add to increase the flavor, bacon bits, we prefer the turkey bacon. Just a thought.

these are the best deviled eggs I have every had. They are very easy to make, and a nice twist on the traditional deviled eggs. I made these for Easter family gathering and they were a huge hit...making them now for a memorial day pool party.
