This insanely flavorful appetizer recipe packs a major punch. It's crispy and salty from the bacon and the pickled jalapeno have a nice kick.

Ingredients for bacon jalapeno deviled eggs:
Here's everything you need to put on your Kroger grocery pickup list! Easy, simple ingredients for the best keto recipe.
- Eggs: you'll be using 6 eggs here but technically it makes 12 jalapeno deviled eggs because they'll be cut in half. Kroger carries a few options of organic, free-range eggs that I like to buy.
- Pickled jalapenos: these will be in the jarred/canned section!
- Bacon: you could either buy pre-made crumbled bacon or grab a pack of bacon from the store, fry it up and save the leftovers for another recipe or breakfast.
- Mayonnaise: try to get a brand that's made with good oils like avocado oil and minimal sugar!
- Cream cheese: this really makes this recipe taste like a jalapeno popper!
How to make bacon jalapeno deviled eggs:
- Start by hard-boiling the eggs. Place the eggs in a single layer in a large saucepan and fill with cold water so the eggs are fully submerged. Bring to a rolling boil then remove from the heat and cover with a lid. Allow to sit for 12 minutes, then place in a bowl of cold water.
- Once cooled, peel the eggs and slice each egg in half lengthwise. Carefully remove the yolk and place in a medium bowl.
- Next, in a small bowl, add the bacon, mayonnaise, cream cheese, salt, pepper and the chopped jalapeños and mix until completely combined.
- Finally, place the mixture in a plastic bag, snip off one corner of the bag, and pipe the filling into the egg halves. Sprinkle each with paprika and top with a jalapeno and you're done!
