Mexican Deviled Eggs. How about a little South of the Border Tapas? Mexican Chorizo sausage, Dijon and Sherry Vinegar turns a deviled egg into an exciting version of this classic popular appetizer.
I feel like I probably love deviled eggs more than most people. After all, I called my Mom the deviled egg queen. She made them often, and she made them mouth watering delicious.
Nothing special, mayo, sugar and mustard. I’m assuming this is a classic Southern Deviled Egg method. And no matter how many she made, the platter of those eggs would disappear quickly.
It seems she’s handed down the crown to me, because with her recipe, I find myself in the same situation. They’re requested whenever I ask what to bring for any pot luck situation. And you bet, they don’t last long.
I’m in no way a purist when it comes to making deviled eggs. I’ll gladly try a new flavor combination as long as I’m sure they’ll be good.
For example, I developed a BBQ bacon Football Deviled Eggs recipe for Stubbs BBQ Sauce which involved a mix of sour cream and mayo. And take a look at my recipe for Spicy Deviled Eggs, with New Mexico Chile Powder.
So how did I come up with this idea for Mexican Deviled Eggs? Our friends Kathy and Tom gave me this cute and fun cookbook for Christmas, W.I.N.O.S. (Women In Need Of Sanity) GO TAPAS. by Bonnie Jesseph.
As I was thumbing through it at our party, Tom asked what I was going to make first. My reply was “have you ever played Recipe Roulette?” So that’s what I did and here are the rules.
Recipe Roulette: You take a cookbook in your hands, close your eyes, spin the cookbook every which direction possible. With eyes still closed open the cookbook and point your finger on the open page. Open your eyes and you have to make the recipe your finger has landed on.
You HAVE to – it’s the rules.
My finger landed on Spanish Deviled Eggs, which instructed to top the finished egg with Spanish Chorizo. My mind immediately shifted to Mexican Chorizo and switching out the instructed parsley garnish with cilantro.
Let’s take a look.
Ingredients You’ll Need
- Mayonnaise: Your favorite brand.
- Roasted Red Bell Peppers: No need to roast your own, A jar of roasted red peppers will work like a charm.
- Sherry Vinegar: The flavor of Sherry Vinegar is a complex combination of sweet and sour. I have to admit, it’s my favorite vinegar to use in my kitchen.
- Eggs: Hard boiled
- Chorizo: Bulk Mexican Chorizo.
- Dijon Mustard
- Fresh Cilantro
Ingredient Swaps and Substitutions
- Chorizo: Turn these Mexican deviled eggs into Spanish deviled eggs by substituting Spanish Chorizo for Mexican Chorizo.
- Vinegar: If you don’t have Sherry Vinegar, use Red Wine Vinegar or even Apple Cider Vinegar.
- Dijon: If you’re out of Dijon mustard, you can substitute plain yellow mustard. The flavor Just won’t be as sharp and complex as using Dijon.
Step By Step: How to Make Mexican Deviled Eggs
- Step 1: Start by pan frying 1/4 pound of Mexican Chorizo. And cooking the eggs to hard-boiled state.
- Step 2: Separate the hard boiled yolks from the egg whites. Place the egg whites on your serving platter and the egg yolks in a large enough bowl to add and mix in seasonings.
- Step 3: Add all of the ingredients to the hard boiled yolks.
Step 4: Using the back of a fork, smash yolks and mix the egg yolks with the seasonings and condiments until well blended.
Step 5: Using a fork, fill the egg whites with the Mexican Deviled Egg Mixture.
I served these Mexican Deviled Eggs with Sopa Caldosa that is so easy and delicious you’ll have a fit and I mean an f-i-t. A cabbage and chorizo soup that you really should give a try.

Oh my goodness, these are amazing! I made them as an appetizer for dinner one evening, and my husband went nuts. He really loves deviled eggs and he also loves chorizo, so these are perfect. I also made them for my recently widowed father-in-law when he came by one night for dinner, and he loved them too, in fact, he had so many he could barely move he was so stuffed (which is amazing considering that he doesn’t go for more than standard meat and potato dishes). This recipe is definitely a hit in our house!
