With summertime picnics, parties and game day snacking, I thought these Crispy Chorizo Deviled Eggs would be a good one to add to your snacking table. Made in no time, but packed with flavor and texture. These are a win, win.
Crispy Chorizo Deviled Eggs?
Deliciously smoky in flavor these hardboiled eggs get a boost in creaminess from Greek yogurt, lemon juice and zest and have a crunchy topping that comes by way of the spicy sausage known as chorizo.
I was never a big deviled egg fan until I started adding fresh herbs or more spice to the egg mixture and it sure doesn’t hurt with a crunchy, spicy topping like this chorizo.
Can you make deviled eggs ahead of time?
Yes, but you need to keep the whites and egg yolk filling separate. Just wrap the egg white halves with plastic wrap and keep the egg yolk filling separate. Just fry up that chorizo before serving and assemble.
What goes good with these eggs?
I’m hoping these Chorizo Deviled Eggs will be a new favorite. Enjoy!
