Prep Time : 10 min

Prep Time : 25 min

Total Time : ,

Servings :8.


  • 4 large jalapeno peppers (or more as needed)
  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 pound ground Italian sausage (I used hot Italian sausage)
  • 12 slices bacon


  • Remove the stem from the jalapeno peppers, then core them out.
  • Mix together the cream cheese, chili powder, garlic, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Stuff each jalapeno with the cream cheese mixture.
  • Form 1/4 of the Italian sausage around the entire outside of the stuffed jalapeno pepper. It will resemble an egg.
  • Next, wrap each with 3 slices of bacon. Be sure to get the bacon wrapped all the way around. You can use toothpicks to affix them, if needed.
  • Heat your grill to medium heat (about 400 degrees F.) and lightly oil the grates.
  • Grill the armadillo eggs for 25-30 minutes, or until the bacon is crispy and the armadillo eggs are cooked through.
  • Serve them up!
