Egg salad with a little kick! Adjust the chile powder to your liking - start with less if you're not an affirmed chilehead & then increase as desired. Let egg salad rest 30 to 45 minutes after making final pepper addition to let flavors meld.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Dice eggs - I use an egg slicer & pass egg through twice at 90 degree angles for regular dice.
  2. Stir in mustard, chile powder & mayo.
  3. Fold in celery & onion.
  4. Chill for 45 minutes.
  5. Taste - be ready for a little toasty kick! Add salt & black pepper if desired. Serve with lettuce & thinly sliced tomato on lightly toasted dark pumpernickel. Enjoy!

Husband and I are big egg salad fans. Really liked the smoky chili flavor. Did need a good dose of salt and pepper for our taste. Makes great sandwiches. Thanks.

This is a wonderful egg salad on small crispy toasts or even crackers. I actually ate this at the chef's home and loved it!

Thanks for the tasty recipe! I filled a greek sundried tomato pita with the egg salad. The chili powder really adds a kick and it compliments the flavours so well. I used red onion because I love red onions. The only thing I would do different is add a little bit of salt. Thanks again!
