This bacon jalapeno deviled eggs recipe is seriously the easiest and it’s basically like regular spicy deviled eggs with bacon and jalapeno added! I don’t know about you but I get tired of the same old plain apps after a while. It’s good to shake things up! I’ve made these jalapeno popper deviled eggs for years and they’re always a crowd pleaser.
How To Make Jalapeno Deviled Eggs
Whether you are an old pro that knows how to make deviled eggs or this is your very first time, they are so easy to make!
To get started, boil the eggs:
- Place the eggs in a large pot and cover with cold water, about an inch above the tops of the eggs.
- Bring to a boil then remove from heat.
- Add the lid and allow the eggs to rest and finish cooking in the boiling water for around ten minutes.
- Frain off the water and peel the eggs.
Now you are ready to cut the eggs in half. Remove the yolk and set it aside in a bowl. Add mayonnaise, mustard, minced bacon, and minced jalapeno to the yolks and stir. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
PRO TIP: If you don’t want the spicy deviled eggs to be overly hot, remove the seeds from the jalapenos before adding to the mixture. The seeds contain most of the heat!
Top with more crumbled bacon and thinly sliced jalapenos. It makes for a prettier presentation, a pop of flavor, and people aren’t surprised when they take a bite and they’re spicy!
Variations For Jalapeno Popper Deviled Eggs
I love the creaminess of traditional deviled eggs and the heat from the jalapeno deviled eggs, but sometimes you want to try something new. Here are a few ideas to spark your imagination:
- Avocado – Add some creamy avocado to the egg mixture, and you will be pleased with the flavor. Avocado pairs nicely with the jalapenos and bacon too.
- Spicy Mustard – Increase the heat a little more if you like things hot! Spicy mustard is a terrific combination with the eggs, bacon, and jalapenos. Just make sure to use whole grain.
- Chives – The flavor that the chives create in this dish is terrific! I like to add chives to lots of recipes because they are so good.
- Horseradish – Try my friend, Lindsay’s, healthy deviled eggs if you would rather omit the jalapenos. Horseradish is one of the main ingredients!
- Smoked Paprika – I love adding smoked paprika to recipes because the smokiness coupled with sweetness is always a welcomed flavor in my book.
- Taco Seasoning – You can sprinkle a bit on top!

Next time you are hosting an event, consider making the best spicy deviled eggs! They are perfect for brunches, birthdays, backyard barbecues, and even reunions. Deviled eggs with fresh jalapeno would be a hit at just about any kind of party.
Can You Make This Bacon Jalapeno Deviled Eggs Recipe Ahead?

You don’t want to make the jalapeno deviled eggs too far in advance, because they may become watery and slimy.
Can You Freeze Bacon Jalapeno Deviled Eggs?
