Armadillo Eggs Recipe

Yield: 12 eggs



Preheat your Yoder Smokers YS640 to 250°F. Remove the stem end of the jalapeños and scoop out the seeds. Combine the cream cheese, pepper jack and Cattleman’s Grill 8 Second Ride Carne Asada Seasoning in a bowl. Mix well, then place in a zip top bag. Cut a corner off of the bag and pipe the cheese mixture into the jalapeños.

Divide the sausage into 12 (2 oz) roughly equal portions. Wrap each portion of sausage around a stuffed jalapeño. Season the outside of the armadillo egg with Cattleman’s Grill 8 Second Ride. Smoke until sausage reaches an internal temperature of 165°F, about 1 hour. Check the internal temperature with an instant read thermometer like the Maverick PT-75. Brush the armadillo eggs with House of Q Rock’n Red BBQ Sauce. Remove from the cooker.
