2 cups commercially prepared roasted red bell peppers
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
20 large hard-cooked eggs
2 Avocados From Mexico peeled and pitted
3 tablespoons Dijon-style mustard
1/2 teaspoon chipotle powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
1 tablespoon Parsley Oil
1/2 red bell pepper finely diced
3 ounces fresh lump crab meat picked over
2 tablespoons finely chopped cilantro
5 ounces sliced prosciutto baked until crisp and crumbled
For Parsley Oil
In large pot of salted wáter, blanch parsley for 10 seconds. Drain parsley in colander. Immedately transfer parsley to bowl of ice water to cool. Drain and pat parsley dry. In blender, whirl parsley with olive oil until smooth. Strain through cheesecloth or Chinois.
For Red Pepper Coulis
Drain roasted peppers and pat dry with paper towel. In blender, puree peppers with oil. Pass through Chinois, adding additional oil as needed to achieve consistency of stirred yogurt.
Peel, halve and separate yolks from whites of hard-cooked eggs. In a food processor, pulse yolks until finely chopped (do not over-process). Add flesh from Avocados, mustard, chipotle powder, salt, and ground black pepper, pulsing until mixture is smooth.

If not using immediately, refrigerate filling for up to 4 hours.
