RECIPE BACKSTORY
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
