Smoky Deviled Eggs

6 eggs
3 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 tablespoon minced shallots
1/2 teaspoon chipotle chili powder, plus extra for garnish
3 dashes of Tabasco or hot sauce
Salt and pepper to taste

Gently place eggs in a large pot and cover with cold water. Place over
high heat and bring water to a boil. Boil eggs for 15 minutes. Remove from heat and place eggs in cold ice water for 20 minutes.

Peel eggs. Cut in half, lengthwise. Gently remove yolks from eggs and
place them in a medium bowl. Mix yolks, mayonnaise, shallots, chipotle chili powder, hot sauce, salt and pepper until well combined. Spoon or pipe the mixture into the hollowed-out egg whites. Sprinkle
lightly with chipotle chili powder, if desired. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.

If you don't have a pastry bag, you can still get the tidy effect of
piping. Simply fill a sturdy plastic bag (Ziplocks work great) with the yolk mixture, snip off a corner, and pipe filling into egg whites.
