Mash and stir all ingredients together well. Taste and add salt and pepper if desired.

- 2. ****NOTES*****
Mixture may be piped into the eggs using a pastry bag instead of using a spoon. Recipe can easily be doubled. I always make my deviled eggs with Best Foods Mayonnaise (aka Hellmans) and just regular yellow mustard. If you don't have smoked paprika, just use plain paprika. I suggest that after the first time you make these, don't bother with the recipe and just add things to taste like I normally do-- it's more fun and then you don't have to clean the measuring cup and spoons!
