Lupe's Smoked Yellow Fin Tuna Deviled Eggs

My wife Lupe loves smoked yellow fin tuna. So I try to keep her in stock by smoking tuna at least monthly. 

Lupe seems to always come up with a new way to mix in the smoked tuna with all kinds of other ingredients. She loves the smoked yellow fin tuna sandwiches, yellow fin tuna salad, yellow fin tuna dip and her newest creation, Smoked Yellow Fin Tuna Deviled Eggs. She outdid herself on this one. Simply fantastic!!!!

She starts out with boiling a half dozen eggs. Removes the egg yolks and sets the halved boiled egg whites aside. She mixes the yolks with the minced green onions and olives.

She then adds the mayonnaise and cream cheese (she uses Philadelphia brand). She uses equals parts mayo and cream cheese. She mixes until the consistency is nice and creamy.

You can salt to taste but remember the smoked yellow fin already is slightly salty.

The next step is to spoon the mixture back into the boiled halved eggs whites.

The smoked yellow fin tuna is chopped up very fine using a food processor or in our case the Magic Bullet blender. 

The tuna is then sprinkled very liberally over the eggs.

The last step is topping off the deviled eggs with a sprinkling of smoked paprika.

And that's it!!

Take it from me, you just gotta try out this recipe. These Deviled Eggs with Smoked Yellow Fin Tuna are simply awesome!!!

Until next time....

Wow! They look fantastic!! Thank you Lupe and Rueben for sharing your recipe. I know I can't get the tuna here but I will try to find a substitute. :)

Thanks Cowgirl!!! I am thinking if you don't have access to salmon, freshly caught crappie would be great smoked. Crappie have great flavor from what I can remember. <:)
