Red Chile Deviled Eggs – Chipotle and Ancho with Chives and Cilantro.

Cute Deviled Eggs – Liver pate in these cute upside down duck / swans.

International Incident Party – Deviled Eggs with Potato, Irish Cheddar, and Bacon. See my step by step take on this recipe in today’s National Egg Salad Week – Inside Out Deviled Eggs.
