Yield Makes 2 dozen

Ingredients

  • 12 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup fat-free Greek yogurt
  • 2 ounces 1/3-less-fat cream cheese
  • 3 tablespoons chopped roasted red bell pepper
  • 1 green onion, minced
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon minced pickled jalapeño pepper
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon Italian dressing mix
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • Canned black-eyed peas
  • Fresh cilantro leaves

How to Make It

  1. Place eggs in a single layer in a stainless steel saucepan. (Do not use nonstick.) Add water to depth of 3 inches. Bring to a rolling boil; cook 1 minute. Cover, remove from heat, and let stand 10 minutes. Drain.

  2. Place eggs under cold running water until just cool enough to handle. Tap eggs on the counter until cracks form; peel.

  3. Slice eggs in half lengthwise, and carefully remove yolks. Mash together yolks, yogurt, and next 9 ingredients until smooth using a fork. Spoon yolk mixture into egg white halves. Top with black-eyed peas and fresh cilantro leaves. Serve immediately, or cover and chill 1 hour before serving.
