To “devil” food means to season it aggressively, perhaps with a bit of chile or black pepper heat. It can also imply that the food is tinged with red (think of that paprika sprinkled on top of deviled eggs). Here are six dishes—other than eggs—to devil.
If you add a pinch of black pepper or cayenne to any boozy drink, you can call it deviled.
To make an elegant filling for omelets or avocado halves, cook scallions and red chiles in butter, then fold them into lemon juice-dressed crab. Or make deviled crab cakes with the same seasoning.
