Spicy Jalapeno Deviled Egg Footballs Recipe
Having lived in four other states before Texas, it’s safe to say that no one has pride for their state quite like Texas. It really is a way of life and the culture that accompanies it is so endearing and infectious, you can’t help but want to show your pride.
Even if you weren’t born in the Lone Star state, pride for your adopted home abounds. “I wasn’t born in Texas but I got here as fast as I could” is a quote from a popular bumper sticker and for me sums up how I feel about Texas. I may not have been born here or spent the majority of my life here but I love Texas, it’s home, and I’m proud of that.
Aside from love of our great state, Texans love football. The next few months will be filled with football games from high school, to college, and on up to the NFL. Even middle school games attract huge crowds and traffic. If it involves football, Texans will watch it.
So when game day rolls around (which at this time of year in our area could be Friday-Monday), you’d better believe we’re dining on some tasty food while we’re watching the game. One of my favorite appetizer recipes to make is deviled eggs, but y’all know I like spicy recipes so these aren’t just any deviled eggs…jalapeno deviled eggs.
