Chimichurri Style Deviled Eggs

Chimichurri Style Deviled Eggs | Faith, Hope, Love, and Luck Survive Despite a Whiskered Accomplice

There’s nothing better than a recipe that gives you two unique meals; two for the price of one is always a good thing in my opinion. With this recipe, you not only get incredibly delicious deviled eggs, but also enough leftover chimichurri sauce to marinate steak, chicken, seafood, or pork. Hell, if you get really desperate, use it to smother lima beans and liver. Maybe it will actually make them edible. Chimichurri pretty much makes everything taste better; I personally can eat it by the spoonful all by its little ol’ self, but eating a steak that has been left to marinate in it for 3 days is pretty darn tasty too. And that’s coming from a girl who’s not the biggest fan of steak. As far as I’m concerned, chimichurri is pretty much a wonder food/sauce/condiment. If you haven’t tried it yet, you’re truly missing out. Especially on french fries…oh my, oh my, oh my…now there’s a tasty treat.

This is a recipe you can really play around with. Want some examples of what I mean by this? No? Too bad, you’re getting them anyway. First up, potato salad. Instead of making deviled eggs, add sliced hard-boiled eggs to boiled diced potatoes, mayonnaise, chimichurri, salt, and pepper. Simple, right? Next up, salad dressing. Chop up whatever lettuce and vegetables you prefer, arrange them in or on a nice bowl or serving platter, dress with chimichurri, and then garnish with sliced hard-boiled eggs. To liven things up, you may choose to even add a tablespoon or two of mayonnaise to the chimichurri dressing, which will make it creamy and decadent. It’s all up to you, go chimichurri crazy. Last, but certainly not least, how about empanadas? Top store-bought or homemade empanadas with sliced hard-boiled eggs and then drizzle them liberally with chimichurri. Now for your ideas, given a choice, how would you use chimichurri?

Suggestions:

  • If you feel that your deviled egg filling is too stiff use additional chimichurri.
  • I don’t feel that these eggs are too spicy, however, if you are sensitive to red pepper flakes, you may wish to cut the amount used in half.
  • Use the remaining chimichurri to marinate steak, chicken, seafood, or pork.
