I remember the first time I tasted deviled eggs. I was a kid, and I loved hardboiled eggs, but the taste of deviled eggs took me by surprise. Sure, they were hardboiled eggs, but they were incredibly creamy and flavorful – this was a delicacy. Just like tasting butter at my grandparents’ house after being accustomed to margarine at my parents’ house, or tasting canned salmon after being used to canned tuna, this was one of those “once you try, you can’t go back”-type experiences.
To this day, deviled eggs is one of my favorite appetizers, and this spicy version is especially nice. As always, I prefer to use sour cream instead of mayonnaise – sour cream, especially organic, has a clean, short list of ingredients while mayonnaise tends to contain unhealthy vegetable oils, additives and preservatives.
