Deviled Eggs With a Kick!

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by pamela t.

Really good deviled eggs with just a little heat. If you like them hotter, simply add more diced jalapeno. The thyme and lemon zest come through with the hot smoked paprika, and the cheese and mustard make these eggs something special. (cooking time is for boiling eggs)

Yummy deviled eggs! I like the lemon and thyme combination and the hit from the mustard (I used a little less than called for). The cheddar and smoky paprika were a nice touch too; I didn't used the optional jalapeno. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
