  1. Slice the eggs in half, not lengthwise.
  2. Remove the yolks; set the whites aside.
  3. Place the yolks, mayonnaise, chile, cilantro and mustard in a food processor, pulse until all is pureed.
  4. Stir in the minced jalapeno by hand; place in a piping bag.
  5. Place filled piping bag in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to chill before piping.
  6. Slice a small portion of the egg white at the base of each egg to give it a level/flat area to make it stand. By cutting the egg in half, and slicing that small portion off the egg, the filled egg will stand straight up - a twist on the traditional presentation.
  7. Pipe or spoon-fill each egg.
  8. Garnish the eggs with a sprinkling of paprika, a couple pieces of jalapeno, pimento and one cilantro leaf.
