Armadillo Eggs Recipe


My dislike for cream cheese is what led me to this armadillo eggs recipe. I cut the top of some jalapenos, filled them with Velveeta cheese, wrapped them in sausage and bacon and the threw them on the smoker.

The smoker was pre heated to 300 degrees and I used Traeger Apple Wood pellets. I smoked the armadillo eggs until they hit an internal temperature of 165 degrees. I then coated them with some BBQ sauce and left them on the smoker for another 10 minutes.

The results, crunchy jalapenos full of spice and a delicious recipe you should give a try.
