1/2 tsp Coleman's dry mustard
1 tblsp finely chopped fresh hot pepper (use your favorite)
1/4 tsp granulated garlic
1/4 tsp ground habanero

1/4 tsp ground white pepper
Pinch gumbo file
DirectionsStuff each half with plenty of the yolk mixture and sprinkle with paprika (or chili powder for an extra zing) and top with a couple pieces of sliced green onion.

I've used this recipe for years with discriminating crowds only...it gets raves. You can make it has hot as you like by adding more or different peppers. It's not as much work as it appears.
An added note: If you like a REALLY good egg salad sandwich boil one more egg really hard (10-12 minutes), chop it and three devilish egg halves coarsely, mix with 1 tsp mayonnaise, 1tblsp heavy cream, 1 tsp chopped plum tomato meat, 1 tsp chopped celery, 1tsp chopped green onion and your favorite cheese chopped finely. This should make 2 sandwiches.
