How to Make Armadillo Eggs

Step-by-Step

  1. Mix Monterrey Jack cheese and sausage. Add biscuit mix a little at a time until thoroughly mixed. It should become a thick dough.
  2. Knead for several minutes then set aside.
  3. Cut a lengthwise slit on one side of each jalapeno leaving the other side intact. Remove the seeds.
  4. Stuff each with cheddar cheese. Pinch edges together to close. Set aside.
  5. Take a small piece of the dough mixture (2 rounded Tbsp.)and flatten it to 1/4 in thick. Wrap it around the stuffed pepper to make an egg shape. Be sure the pepper is sealed completely.
  6. Dip the "egg" into the beaten egg then roll in the Shake 'n Bake to coat. Repeat with all the peppers.
  7. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown.
  8. If you want to make these ahead of time: Unbaked Armadillo Eggs may be refrigerated up to 2 hours before baking or frozen up to 1 month. If frozen, add about 5 minutes to the baking time.
