Baked Armadillo Eggs

Sorry, it was a bit oily! =p
No, this recipe doesn't include any armadillo at all. Why they named it such, no idea. Perhaps some versions look similar?

Anyway, armadillo eggs (the food) include sausages, jalapeno and cheese. The taste is really arresting, making it a potent appetizer.

Here's how we did it:

Ingredients: (makes around 12 pieces)
  • 6 jalapeno peppers (wash and dry first)
  • 1/3 lb ground pork sausage
  • 1/2 cup of grated monterey jack cheese (semi-hard cheese made of cow's milk)
  • 12 small cubes of cheddar cheese (measures around 1 cm each)
  • 1/2 pack coating mix (for pork)
  • cooking oil

The Procedure:
  1. Cut off the stem end of the jalapenos then cut lengthwise, producing two halves per jalapeno pepper. Discard the pulp and seeds.
  2. In a container, mix monterey jack cheese and ground pork sausage then stuff them in each empty pepper.
  3. Insert the small cubes in each pepper by pushing them against the ground sausage and monterey jack cheese mixture.
  4. Dip the peppers in coating mix, put them on a baking dish sprayed with cooking oil then bake at about 350 degrees for 25 minutes.
  5. Arrange on a platter and serve along with your favorite dip. We used garlic mayo for ours.
Dip suggestions: taco sauce, guacamole, salsa, garlic mayo
