These pickled eggs are great sliced and served on a salad or just eat them plain for a quick low carb snack! You can adjust the heat by adding more or less chipotle and adobo.

They taste like a plain pickled egg. But... The onions are great! I used those by themselves and made some more to have. Great pickled onion recipe. Read More

OMG!! These were a big hit with my family! The only thing I changed was that I did NOT stain the brine. I left the onion garlic and ONE pepper in the jar. Thanks! Read More

My family can't get enough of these! I recommend refrigerating them about 5 days for the eggs to really take on the flavors of the brine. Read More

Very good! I would add more chipotle or adobo sauce to make these eggs spicy. The spice as-is is very mild. I still prefer throwing boiled eggs into left over pickle jars in the remaining brine for the perfect pickled egg but these were nice for a change of pace. Read More
