Honoring the Saints with my black & gold photo composition :)
This is it, folks. The last day of Appetizer Week here at Kitchen Koala. Have you finalized your menu and plans for your Super Bowl gatherings? Even if you have, it's not too late for a last-minute addition to your menu! These spicy deviled eggs have an Asian flair and are a bit of a change from your standard deviled egg recipe, yet they're simple enough to pull together at the last minute! The ingredients are easy to find--even the Sriracha hot sauce. I grew up with the stuff, which used to be available only at Asian grocers and specialty shops. Now it's a staple in many kitchens, thanks in no small part to The Food Network. Look for it either in the Asian foods section of your grocery store or with the other hot sauces.
What I love about Sriracha: It's got heat and doesn't reek of vinegar.
