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.

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!

thank you for a original recipe with the seasonings i love! worked well I added a little garlic

delicious!!!! but if you want them more spicy.... add A LOT MORE chipotle chiles...

Overall, pretty good. I was expecting a little more "kick" since I doubled the chipotle. But the flavor was nice.

GREAT...added two peppers because I love the heat!!

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.

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 ...

I loved the change of pace from the usual pickled egg. That said, these aren't spicy at all, for those who are scared to try them. On the heat scale, they were about a 1. I ended up adding 2 who...
