Deli Style Spicy Pickled Eggs with Jalapeno

Two of my most popular posts of all time are Mustard Pickled Eggs and Amish Red Beet Pickled Eggs... So yep, I will try a new pickled egg recipe every once in a while, and Easter is the perfect time for it:@) These Deli Style Spicy Pickled Eggs with Jalapeno caught my eye and as with the others, they are great as is (cold adult beverage optional), as deviled eggs or diced in potato or macaroni salad. It's the jalapeno that makes these eggs a little different, use as much, or as little as you'd like... You know your crowd.
Speckled eggs were a surprise from dyeing them in the Instant Pot HERE.

What I did differently: I didn't poke holes in the eggs before adding them to the jar, that just didn't appeal to me. I also didn't have a fresh jalapeno at the time??? At the end of summer I picked the peppers that were left on the plant and tossed them whole into the freezer, so I cut one in half and used that for my 4 egg test batch. I will be using more peppers, and fresh peppers next time:@) This is a pic of the egg after marinating 5 days.

I have to say, of the pickled egg recipes I've tried so far, I like this one best for eating out of hand as a snack.
All of them make great egg salad:@)

Deli Style Spicy Pickled Eggs with Jalapeno-from Delicious Table
12 hard boiled eggs, peeled
4 C white vinegar
4 C water
1 Tblsp sea salt-I used Kosher
1 Tblsp black peppercorns
2 Tblsp pickling spice
1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
6 cloves garlic, peeled and smashed
5 jalapenos, 1/4" sliced
  1. Poke holes in eggs with toothpick, toss toothpick, and place eggs in sterilized mason jar or vessel(s) large enough to submerge all eggs. I did not poke holes in my eggs.
  2. Place jalapeno slices on top of eggs.
  3. Bring vinegar, water, salt, peppercorns, spices and garlic to a boil.
  4. Pour over eggs. You will have more liquid than needed, I'd try to spoon some of the spices into each jar
  5. Allow liquid to cool on counter for about an hour, cover and store in refrigerator.
  6. Eggs will be ready in about one week. Eat within a couple weeks.
Let's use up those dyed Easter eggs and have a happy day:@)

  1. Hi Lynn, I have never had pickled eggs before! I would love the try and make them sometime. This afternoon I am going to make Spaghetti pie using my husband's Italian aunts recipe.
    I hope you enjoy the rest of the week and have a Happy Easter.
