Tex-Mex Deviled eggs is a sponsored post. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Why are Texans loud and proud? Is it BBQ and big family gatherings? Is it bluebonnets? Is it rodeos and cowboys? Is it Friday night football? Is it Buc-ee’s? As a native Texan, I have experienced all of these things and although I hold them all near and dear, the main reason I am a satisfied resident of the Lone Star state is Tex-Mex cuisine! You can turn anything into Tex-Mex by adding a little spice which is just what we did with these tex-mex deviled eggs!
Tex-Mex Deviled Eggs
Tex-Mex is a term describing a fusion of American cuisine and Mexican cuisine. It is best known for it’s ingredients of shredded cheese, meat, beans, and spices. Tex-Mex is one of the most popular choices in Texas. So I challenged myself to incorporate Tex-Mex into an everyday favorite of my family’s. What is more classic American than deviled eggs? By adding a little spice, maybe I can create a new tradition.
What You Need:
- 12 hard-boiled eggs
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise or salad dressing
- 2 tsp prepared mustard
- 2 tsp vinegar
- pinch of salt and pepper
- finely chopped jalapenos
What You Do:
- Hard boil eggs and allow to cool completely.
- Halve the eggs lengthwise and remove yolks. Set whites aside.
- Put yolks in small bowl and mash with fork. Add all of the remaining ingredients and mix.
- Fill the egg white halves with mixture.
- Cover and chill until time to serve. Garnish with jalapenos.
Use Texas Ingredients
Another way to show my Texas pride is to support local growers and products. I bought my jalapenos at the local farmer’s market and we love buying Lone Star Eggs because they are produced locally and only available at Texas Walmarts. On October 18, newspapers in Houston, Dallas/Ft. Worth and San Antonio will be offering a coupon for $0.75 off a carton of Lone Star Eggs!
