“Armadillo Eggs” are delicious morsels of jalapeno filled with a delectable herbed cream cheese blend and then wrapped generously in bacon and grilled or baked to perfection. A perfect treat for Game day!
1 dozen Fresh Jalapeno Peppers
1 pkg Cream Cheese (8 oz)
1 T. Chopped Green Onion
2 tsp Chives (I used dried/reconstituted)
1 pkg bacon (12 oz)
Preheat oven to 375F
Halve and seed the jalapenos. I recommend using gloves to prevent burning your fingers (or eyes hours later when you accidentally touch your face).
Mix Cream Cheese, chives and chopped green onion until smooth. Fill each jalapeno half with cream cheese mixture.
Wrap each filled Jalapeno with 1/2 slice of bacon.
Bake 15 minutes or until bacon is crispy. These are delightfully delicious! These are also quite tasty grilled!
