Chipotle Bacon Deviled Eggs RecipeBut this isn’t BBQ!!

I know, I know, but you need to accept that sometimes the recipes I share won’t be BBQ.  I’m sorry.  But, I thought this was a timely recipe to share, charcoal or not.

With 7 grandkids in our family, we have lots of hard-boiled eggs leftover from our Easter egg hunts.  This year, at our family Easter gathering we wanted to try to use up some of them.  We searched for a recipe that sounded interesting and landed on one from Pinch My Salt.  We were thrilled with the results.  Chipotle Bacon Deviled Eggs RecipeI think the key to the whole deal is bacon.  You see, I truly believe that bacon makes everything better.  So, when we found this recipe that includes chopped bacon in the mixture as well as on the top, I hat a gut feeling it would be the best any of us ever had.

I was right.  Bacon never disappoints.  Every single person in the family agreed these were the best deviled eggs any of us ever had.  If you are looking for a way to get rid of those hard-boiled eggs in a very tasty way, we highly suggest this recipe!
