The hockey playoffs begin tonight. The Round of 16 is in place and so begins the quest for the Stanley Cup. We're especially jazzed here because our team is in. As a result, that means that Homegating101 Headquarters is open for the duration - and I wouldn't have it any other way. As long as they keep showing up to watch the games, I'll keep coming up with tasty dishes.
I had extra hardboiled eggs leftover from Easter and needed to do something with them. I knew I was going to tire of eating them throughout the week, so went with a good ol' standby. You can never got wrong with deviled eggs. But these aren't your standard deviled eggs. These are Homegating101-style deviled eggs. Give a warm (and I mean that literally) welcome to: Huevos Diablos!
Huevos Diablos are definitely hot ones. The combination of sriracha and cayenne provides the warmest kick this side of Hades. If you like spicy, these are spicy and yet still flavorful. The secret ingredient here is the smoked paprika. It balances out the heat of the sriracha and cayenne, so you wind up with a smoky-spicy flavor. These will go perfectly with an ice cold chilly beer, that's for sure. I know my friends will really enjoy them.
1 dozen hardboiled eggs, halved
3 tbs mayo
1 1/2 tbs sriracha
1/8 tsp garlic powder
1/8 tsp onion powder
1 tsp smoked paprika
1/4 tsp cayenne powder
2 tbs white vinegar
Pop the yolks into a food processor and add remaining ingredients. Mix until creamy. Taste and adjust seasonings. Pipe into egg whites and serve.
So there you have it. I hope you decide to try these for your Playoff gathering - or any gathering for that matter.
If your team made it to the Playoffs, good luck!
I will see you back here next week for some more gameday stories and culinary inspiration! Keep homegating!
