Slit jalapeno peppers down the side.

Stuff peppers with cheese and roll in flour, Set aside.

Beat eggs and water together.

Dip floured peppers in the egg mixture, set aside.

Dredge prepared peppers in the bread crumb mixture.

Armadillo eggs are done when they turn golden brown and the cheese starts to melt.

Opt for shredded cheese over sliced cheese. It is easier to stuff cheese in the peppers when it is shredded.

Do not overheat oil. This will cause dangerous splattering that and could burn the armadillo eggs.

I rec'd this in an email today. I only have two jalapeños. I'll get more and make these for Friday night
