Deviled eggs.  Yes, deviled eggs.  Cliche and 80’s – like, I know, but hear me out.  We had family in town this weekend and at the same time, we undertook the daunting task of potty-training our oldest son, which didn’t leave me with the luxury of extra time to make a trip to the grocery store to make an appetizer for our family get-together.  I had to use what I had on-hand and after surveying the fridge and pantry, I came up with this twist on a tried and true party staple.  These Southwest Chipotle Deviled Eggs take an already amazing one-bite appetizer and turn it into a crazy good, smoky, creamy flavor explosion.  So, go ahead and make these for your next party.  They’re guaranteed to disappear fast.
