Keep It Simple!

Another non-recipe recipe for you!  This one's the simplest appetizer you'll ever make unless you consider putting some chips and store bought dip out on the table an appetizer!  This is pretty close though...

Spicy Egg Shooters (12)
6 Eggs
Pickled Jalapeno Slices
Red Bell Pepper

Place the eggs in cold water and bring to a boil.  Continue boiling the eggs for as long as you normally do!  There are so many "perfect" methods out there I hesitate to say anything specific so if you're like me, just boil them until you think they're done!  Slice the bell pepper (raw or roasted) into small strips about 1/4" x 1".  If you are using raw pepper, saute it for a couple minutes in a tsp or so of olive oil to soften it.  Once the eggs have cooled enough to handle, peel them and cut them in half.  Put a tiny dab of mayonnaise on each egg half (maybe 1/4 tsp), a slice of pickled jalapeno and a strip of bell pepper.  Place in the refrigerator if not serving right away.

That's it!  So simple!  No mixing, smoothing, seasoning or guessing!  Once you eat one of these you may never go back to regular deviled eggs again.  The kick of the jalapeno and the sweetness of the pepper combined with the creamy mayonnaise and rich egg yolk will make your taste buds sing!

Oh, by the way, these are perfect for 4th of July!
