Chipotle and Lime Egg Salad (a.k.a Deviled Egg Dip) recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen
Chipotle and Lime Egg Salad with spicy smoky heat and a tangy bite of lime was a spur of the moment creation this past weekend. My boys requested deviled eggs as part of our appetizers for a movie night and my middle son was excited to help me make them.

Unfortunately, the eggs were falling apart by the time he had them all peeled. I decided to turn them into a deviled egg dip that we could eat with crackers or chips.

Naturally, I couldn’t just leave that idea alone. The next thing I knew, I was grabbing a couple of chipotle peppers from the freezer and juicing a lime. We all enjoyed this dip; but honestly, I was the one who just couldn’t get enough of it. I set aside a bit of it for my lunch the next day and my oldest son begged to share it with me.

    At least I don't feel bad now… the last time I wanted to make deviled eggs the eggs were a mess by the time I was done with them!! I ended up making a dip too.. although nothing like this. Can't wait to screw up deviled eggs again so I can make this 🙂

    I used to ride to school with a guy that took egg salad sandwiches everyday. They stunk up the whole car and all of us swore we could smell his locker halfway down the hall. But in spite of my dislike of egg salad, I love deviled eggs but have always stayed super traditional. The addition of lime sounds great. Another great recipe Mary!

    What a brilliant spur-of-the-moment creation. Such a fun twist on classic egg salad. Thank you for sharing…and thank you for your sweet words on my blog. They made my day.

    YUM! This is such a great idea. I never would have thought to flavor egg salad this way. We're rounding up egg recipes for this month's Shine Supper Club and this would be a perfect contribution. I hope you'll join us!

    Try steaming your eggs instead of boiling them. Peeling them will always be a breeze and you won’t end up with your eggs in pieces.
