"Appetizers"- Deviled Eggs

Believe it or not, it is the first time I have ever made this simple appetizer. I had invited 'A's family for dinner last night and was looking for a simple side dish/ appetizer.I came across this website..dedicated solely to these tasty hors d'oeuvres.
They have done some 'serious' work on eggs...really I mean....there is 'nutritional info on eggs',how to position the egg yolk in the center, how to perfectly hard boil the eggs, peel them, recipes..etc etc....is given step by step.I thought it was pretty neat!

6 'perfectly' hard boiled eggs (visit the above website for tips)
1and 1/2 tbsp Kraft 'Chipotle' Mayo
1/4tsp black pepper
1tsp hot and sweet sauce
red chili powder for garnish
cilantro for garnish

1) Hard boil the eggs.Peel after the eggs cool.Slice into halves.

 2) Remove the eggs yolks carefully with a spoon.Mash completely with a fork.Add the mayo, hot and sweet sauce, black pepper, salt etc and mix well.The filling shouldn't be too loose. You should be able to pipe in from a pastry bag/ icing gun. The filling tastes spicy and 'smoky' with a little 'tangy' flavor from the hot and sweet sauce.
3) Pipe the filling in the center in the egg whites(where the egg yolks originally were) with a pastry bag or a icing gun.Fill the cavity completely.
4) Sprinkle some red chili powder and garnish with cilantro.Serve at room temperature.
