Slice each egg in half lengthwise. Carefully remove the yolk from each half and place in a small mixing bowl. Set egg whites aside on a separate plate.
Mash the yolks until crumbly with very small chunks. Add mayonnaise, mustard, chipotle peppers, and adobo sauce. Stir well until creamy and uniform. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Using a small spoon or piping bag, fill the empty egg whites with the mixture. Lightly sprinkle with cayenne pepper or chili powder, and garnish with cilantro and additional chopped pieces of pepper.
