These are very tasty and easy to prepare

Armadillo Eggs


  • 4 Jalapenos
  • 1 lb Sausage
  • 2 oz Cream Cheese
  • 1/4 cup Shredded Cheese


  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  • Mix cream cheese and shredded cheese.
  • Cut off the ends of the jalapenos and hollow them out.
  • Stuff the jalapenos with the cheese mixture and surround with the meat.
  • Bake for 30-40 minutes depending on thickness

Be very careful during, and after, handling the jalapenos. They are spicy by contact.

If you can, use a piping bag to put the cheeses in the jalapenos. It becomes so much easier than trying to push using a knife. Alternatively you could cut the jalapenos in half lengthwise to make them more like a canoe. I’m not sure what this would do to the cheeses leaking out earlier but it is worth trying.

I have also had success making scrambled armadillo eggs. It’s just the same ingredients but instead of the difficulty of making and stuffing them and putting them in the oven, I make it stovetop. You can just eat it with a spoon, or put it on something like a tortilla or bun.

You can get more, smaller eggs by cutting the jalapenos in half. This is what I did and they were finished at 30 minutes. Though they were only browned on the bottom, the cheeses were leaking out. It might be better to flip them halfway through to get a more uniform coloring.
