The combination of bacon and jalapeño in these deviled eggs adds a little kick of unique flavor to a classic recipe, like our bacon-wrapped jalapeño poppers. I love taking classic recipes and refreshing them with new ingredients. This spicy deviled eggs recipe is easy to follow and only requires a few ingredients, making it a great option for any occasion.


This recipe is my new favorite way to spice up traditional deviled eggs! It’s still a super simple recipe with a fun twist. I’ve added just two additional ingredients to this classic appetizer, but the process of making them is still pretty much the same as any other version.

If you like your deviled eggs on the tangier side, this recipe with jalapeños will definitely wake up your taste buds. The addition of bacon really adds to the flavor of this recipe. Salty bacon mixed with the creamy and spicy yolk mixture and the cooling flavor of the egg whites is a fantastic combination of flavors.

What’s the trick for peeling hard boiled eggs?

Immediately rinse or submerge hard boiled eggs in cold water after cooking and they will be easy to peel.

Should you make deviled eggs the night before or the day of?

Either way works! These bacon jalapeño deviled eggs can be served either warm or cold. Some people like them fresh and warm, while others prefer to let them chill in the fridge before serving. You can make deviled eggs the night before if you prefer to serve them cold.

Is it better to boil eggs the night before making deviled eggs?

If you boil the eggs the night before, you’ll want to immediately remove the shells after you hard boil the eggs. Then you can finish your recipe the next day.

How to store deviled eggs?

Store a single layer of deviled eggs in an airtight container in the fridge for three to four days.

Serving suggestions

Making an appetizer spread? There are so many great options for what to serve with deviled eggs! I like pairing them with crispy potato skins, different flavors of pigs in a blanket, Charleston cheese dip or bacon cheddar dip, and homemade pimento cheese.
