Why I Love This Recipe

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

Ingredients You'll Need

6 jalapen peppers
Monterey jack cheese
2 eggs
1 Tablespoon water
Bread crumbs
Canola oil


Slit jalapeno peppers down the side.

Fill medium pot with 2 quarts of water and parboil peppers for 3 minutes.

Remove the peppers from water and place on paper towels to drain.

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.

Fry in small amount of oil in a skillet over low heat.

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