Prepared as written using mayo, Spanish smoked paprika and fresh chives from the garden. Used Tabasco 'Chipotle' sauce. This was a perfect protein for a last minute dinner menu change to accompany Beet and Berry Salad. Next time I'll mash the eggs to make what I think would be really yummy egg salad sandwiches!

I added maybe a bit more than called for "hot sauce", and sprinkled half of mine with paprika and half with chili powder. I really enjoyed the chives in this instead of the usual pickles. These were delicious! Thanks for sharing.
