Fully Loaded Deviled Eggs

Rating: 4.5 stars 62
My children and husband go nuts over these deviled eggs with sour cream. I made them for a potluck at work and have been asked for them ever since. (If you can keep people away from them, you're doing better than I ever could.) The time I spend prepping this depends on how fast you shell your eggs. I have two girls, so we knock this out in about 30 minutes (minus cooking time).

Grilled Jalapeno Poppers
