These deviled eggs have an Iberian accent; instead of the usual paprika as garnish, we use pimenton, a smoked Spanish paprika. The yolk is flavored with tomato paste, which provides a concentrated tomato flavor.


  • 8 large eggs

  • cup mayonnaise

  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

  • 1 teaspoon white-wine vinegar

  • 2 teaspoons tomato paste

  • 1 teaspoon sweet smoked paprika (dulce pimenton), plus more for garnish


  1. In a medium saucepan, cover eggs with 1 inch of water. Bring to a boil; remove from heat. Cover and let stand 12 minutes. Drain eggs; run under cold water until cool enough to handle.

  2. Peel and halve eggs lengthwise; remove yolks and transfer to a bowl. Mash with a fork; mix in mayonnaise, mustard, and vinegar. Press through a sieve to make smooth. Stir tomato paste and pimenton into yolk mixture.

  3. Using a pastry bag fitted with desired tip (we used plain and star tips), pipe yolk mixture into whites. Garnish with pimenton. Serve immediately, or chill up to 2 hours.

Cook's Notes

Instead of piping the filling with a pastry bag and tip, you can use a resealable plastic bag with a corner snipped off. Or simply spoon it into the egg whites.
