      Mole Coloradito Deviled Eggs

      Mole Coloradito Deviled Eggs

      Our friend Esteban, aka @ChicanoEats has done it again.  This time he surprised us with this out of this world deliciousness, deviled eggs recipe.  We must admit, eggs and mole are one of our most favorite combos.  Our dad's favorite meal is actually scrambled eggs and ham with a drizzle (big drizzle) of mole negro.  We also always keep a small saucepan of mole on our stove top to throw over any breakfast meal.  These deviled eggs however, took the mole egg game to a whole other level.  They were decadent and packed with flavor.  An absolute must have at any brunch.  Try them out and let us know what you think! 
      Thank you Esteban!
