Our Favorite Candied Jalapeno Egg Salad

Egg salad – either you love it, you despise it or you’re just indifferent about it. We (obviously) love it! For that reason, it is not something we typically serve for a crowd, but it is a dish that we enjoy for lunch! It’s also easy to pack for a picnic or an outdoor lunch at the beach, campsite or on a boat.

Egg salad is also high in protein, which will keep you full for hours, and perfect as a sandwich or in lettuce wraps for a lower carb option. It’s also incredibly easy and quick to prepare, which is always a plus!

If you love egg salad as much as we do, once you try this simple recipe with Gesus Palomino candied jalapenos, you’ll never go back to anything else.
