Sriracha Deviled Eggs

If you like spicy foods, then you are going to love this fire-y twist on a classic! These Sriracha Deviled Eggs are so delicious! I love Sriracha on just about anything and these Sriracha deviled eggs are no exception. The Sriracha perfectly complements the creaminess of the egg whites and the filling. My family loves deviled eggs, but not everyone likes them spicy. So, I make about half of them spicy and the other half I just sprinkle with a little paprika. That way people who aren’t as fond of spice as I am can still enjoy them.

Ingredients in Sriracha Deviled Eggs

  • Hard Boiled Eggs – This Sriracha Deviled Eggs recipe starts with hard boiled eggs. See below for tips on how to make the best, easy-peel hard-boiled eggs!
  • Mayonnaise – Mayonnaise is one of those foods where I always buy the name brand. The store brand just never tastes as good! We like Best Foods Mayo the most. (Not sponsored – just the truth!)
  • Mustard – Mustard gives this deviled egg recipe a bit of tang and adds to the yellow coloring.
  • White Vinegar – With all the other creamy ingredients, you need just a little bit of acidity to cut through and balance things out.
  • Sugar – Just ⅛ of a teaspoon of sugar gives these deviled eggs a touch of sweetness.
  • Salt & Pepper – Add salt and pepper to your liking.
  • Sriracha – This spicy red sauce adds a little kick to this classic appetizer. I like my Sriracha deviled eggs really spicy so I add Sriracha to the yolk mixture and then drizzle it over the top as well.
  • Chives – The chives are optional but they add a pop of color and freshness to the dish!

Tips for Making the Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs

The first step to delicious Sriracha Deviled Eggs is having perfect hard-boiled eggs. Follow these steps for success!

  • The best eggs to hard boil are those that are at least three days old. Super fresh eggs tend to be harder to peel.
  • Don’t put your eggs into already boiling water. Place them in the pan first, then add cold water until there’s about an inch or so of water covering the eggs.
  • The key to making perfect eggs on the inside is to not over boil. If they’re too hot for too long, then you will get that greenish-grayish ring around the yolk.
  • Here’s our secret ingredient: add a little baking soda (about ½ teaspoon or a little less) to the water while boiling. This will make it easier to peel the eggs later on.
  • If you’re going to peel the eggs right away to make these Sriracha Deviled Eggs, then give them a little crack and plunge them in an ice water bath. Only do this if you’re going to peel them immediately after. If you’re saving the eggs for later, just put them straight into the ice water.

FAQ

    I went with the spicy option and my family loved them! I’m totally going to make these again soon. They were so easy and delicious! Thanks for the recipe.

    LOVE the dill variation! I’ve made deviled eggs with chopped pickle before, but never thought to add dill. Now I’ve put both in and am thoroughly delighted with the results! Made a few of the sriracha ones as well for my husband. He was thrilled! He loved them. 🙂 Will need to make these again!

    These sound like delicious spins on the classic deviled eggs! I was introduced to smoked paprika and love it! Do you think smoked paprika would pair well with these eggs? If not, I know I’ll enjoy each of these versions!

  4. 5 stars
    Deviled eggs are one of my favorite appetizers at parties but I’ve never made them until this recipe. The sriracha sauce is the best part!

  5. 5 stars
    Just made this… It’s pretty good! For next time I’d recommend- a little lighter on the mayo; a little heavier on the sriracha and maybe add a hit of lemon or lime juice too. Thanks for the recipe 🙂

  6. How much sriracha would you recommend for somebody that likes spicy stuff?? Weird question, but I want to make these for my husband and I can’t taste test because I can’t handle it!! :p thanks!
