No time to cook? My recipe for easiest deviled eggs with chipotle lime mayo uses only three ingredients. How’s that for simple? Don’t save deviled eggs just for Easter; this high-protein snack is great year-round! With a jar of Primal Kitchen chipotle lime mayo, eggs, and some chives, you’ll have everything you need for this keto-friendly treat. Enjoy the low-carb deliciousness.
I always forget about deviled eggs when it is not springtime. It’s too bad since they make a truly fantastic snack. When made with the Primal Kitchen chipotle lime mayo, they are divine.
(P.S. I have no relationship with the brand Primal Kitchen. If you’ve poked around my site, you know that I only promote products that I believe in. I genuinely like this mayo.)
“The Fannie Farmer Cookbook” has my go-to mayo recipe when I want to make things from scratch. When I want to save time, this Primal Kitchen mayo saves the day. It uses no canola or soy oil, two types of oil that tend to be over-abundant in processed foods.
Here are the ingredients for the Primal Kitchen chipotle lime mayo: Avocado Oil, Organic Eggs, Organic Egg Yolks, Organic Vinegar, Water, Sea Salt, Organic Lime Juice Concentrate, Chipotle Powder, Lime Granules, Organic Garlic Powder, Organic Rosemary Extract.
Here are the ingredients for a competitor (mostly canola oil): expeller-pressed canola oil, filtered water, garlic, brown rice syrup, white wine vinegar, pea protein, sea salt, chipotle peppers, chipotle powder, mustard flour, natural smoke flavor, natural flavor, lemon juice concentrate, paprika extract.
The competitor's product contains added sugar (in the form of rice syrup) and isolated pea protein instead of eggs. However, neither is present in significant enough quantities to be reflected in the sugars or protein on the label.
Make the best deviled eggs
There are a few tricks that will help get you the most aesthetically pleasing eggs possible. Extremely fresh eggs can be tricky to peel after hard-boiling. The white tends to be more likely to stick to the shell.
Slightly older eggs are a better choice for hard-boiled eggs because they are more likely to release cleanly from the shell. If they are within your budget, pastured eggs tend to have brighter yolks that have a more pleasing appearance. Conventional eggs are fine too, and it is unlikely you’ll taste a difference in this recipe either way.
You could fill the eggs with a spoon, as I did for years. If you want them to look nicer for a holiday or just because, consider piping the filling into the egg whites. Either fill a plastic baggie with the filling and snip a corner, or use a cake decorating piping set. Both options work well.
I kept things simple by garnishing with a little sprinkle of paprika, but feel free to dress your deviled eggs with chipotle lime mayo up more. How about adding a crumble of bacon or a tiny slice of avocado on top? Yum!

Easiest Deviled Eggs with Chipotle Lime Mayo
- 6 eggs large
- 3 T Primal Kitchen chipotle lime mayo
- 1 T chives, finely chopped
- hot paprika to garnish (optional)
- Put the eggs in a single layer in a pot of water. Make sure that they are completely submerged. (Eggs that float have spoiled.)
- Let the water come to a boil and cook the eggs for 10 minutes. Run the eggs under cold water to cool.
- Peel the eggs and cut each in half lengthwise.
- Gently scoop out the yolks and put them in a small bowl.
- Add the yolks, mayo, and chives to a bowl. Mash them together well with the back of a fork. The filling should be a uniform color with flecks of green from the chives.
- Spoon or pipe the filling into the empty cavities of the egg whites.
- Garnish each deviled egg with a sprinkle of the hot paprika, if desired.
This is a level 3 recipe (weight maintenance and active lifestyles). Each filled egg half only contains 60 calories, but trust me, you are going to want more than one! You could bring the calories down by substituting non-fat plain Greek yogurt for the mayo. However, I don’t recommend it because it does not taste nearly as good. If you are following one of the low-carb paths to weight loss such as keto or lchf, this may fit into your meal plan. On the other hand, if you don’t find high-fat foods to be particularly satiating, this may not be the best option for you. Know thyself!
