  • 2 tablespoons chopped Old El Paso™ pickled jalapeño slices
  • 1 green onion, thinly sliced on the bias, white and green parts separated

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    For creamiest results, be sure to shred your own cheese.
  • tip 2
    For a little extra flavor, sprinkle filled eggs with smoked paprika before topping with pimientos and green onion greens.
  • tip 3
    For easy filling, spoon cheese mixture into 1-quart resealable food-storage plastic bag, clip 1/2-inch from corner of bag and pipe filling into halved eggs.
