My mom made these all the time when I was a little girl and I loved them. These eggs are such a pretty color when they're done and although they look nice they're very spicy and bite you back when you bite into them! They're quite pretty sliced over a salad or as an appetizer on the buffet table or just eat the yummy things for no other reason than the fact that you want a cute, spicy, pickled egg! They get their gorgeous color from the beets which are delish too. The onion rings can be used to garnish a salad as well. Heck, use all the goodies from the jar; you just can't go wrong with this one.

These were easy and came out very well. I have never had pickled eggs before, but wanted to try them. I have to admit that they are an acquired taste! Luckily, I acquired that taste. I did not find them very hot. Made for PAC, Fall 2009.
- 2 dozen hard-boiled eggs, shelled
- 2 (15 ounce) canswhole baby beets, undrained (use a good quality canned beet for the best color and can size is approximate.)
- 1 (8 ounce) jar hot chili peppers (these are small hot yellow peppers and jar size is approximate)
- 1 large onion, sliced into rings
- apple cider vinegar
Directions See How It's Made
- In a gallon jar dump in the yellow chili peppers, juice and all.
- Then dump in the undrained beets over the peppers.
- Place the sliced onion rings on top of the beets.
- Then place the shelled, whole eggs in on top of the onion rings.
- Pour vinegar over everything to cover, making sure that all the ingredients are immersed in the vinegar, beet juice & chili juice.
- Put the lid on the jar or cover it with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 5 to 7 days.
- As I said, these are just gorgeous sliced and the beets and onions are yummy too. I don't eat the peppers because they're just too hot for me, but the brave may want to munch on them as well.
