Spiceradish Eggs!

Can't think of a better name for em, really.

Trying to find some high protein variety snacks and I came up with the idea of deviled eggs. MMM LOVE THEM, of course using non-fat/half fat mayo or traditionally (in my house!) Miracle Whip (omg so delish).  But then I found a recipe and over the past week I've tweaked it.  And in my good fashion, all measurements are by "dash" so very very approximate haha.

Hard boiled eggs as many as you want
(don't know how? Here's a simple way!  Poke holes in egg bottoms with a pin, put in large pot and cover +1inch with cold water.  Set to boil.  Once rolling boil remove from heat and let sit for 11 mins, dump the water and sit under running cold water tap to cool and stop cooking process.)

Half the eggs, put egg yolks in a bowl or in a small food processor
Add 1/4-1/3cup light/fat free mayo
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp chili powder
1 tsp cayenne*  (start with less, 1/4tsp then increase as you taste test)
1/2 tsp pepper
2tbsp (or more!) prepared horseradish (or homemade if you can!!!!)

Blend or crush with your forky-fork until smooth. I dislike using a fork now because the yolks still are chunky.  Electricity is a beauty, why let it escape our control?! Unless you're a hippie...
