No it's not eggs, but the jalapeno and cheese stuffed ground beef takes the shape of an oval :) I don't know about you, but I have a husband who LOVES spicy food. This is a mildly spicy dish that even the kiddos ate up quick!

  • 2 lbs. beef, ground, free-range or grass-fed, organic
  • 1/2 c. salsa, fresh made, organic
  • 1 tbs. chili powder, organic
  • 1 tsp. cumin powder, organic
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder, organic
  • 6 chili pepper, jalapeno, fresh, organic
  • 1/2 c. cheese, colby or pepper jack, raw, grass-fed or pastured, organic
  • 1 bell pepper, green, fresh, organic
  • 1 onion, any type, organic
  • 1 tbs. coconut oil, raw, extra-virgin, organic

Slice stem tops off Jalapenos and seed vertically. I used a Butter knife to scrape out the seeds. Stuff each pepper with shredded cheese and set aside.

In a mixing bowl, combine ground beef, salsa (of desired spiciness) , chili powder,cumin,and garlic powder.

On a piece of foil, flatten out enough beef into 6 thin and flat rounds. Put a cheese stuffed jalapeno in the center of each and pull up sides to wrap all the way around. Pick it up in your hand to mold into a enclosed oval egg shape.

Grill on med high heat on both sides until thoroughly cooked. About 10-12 min remove from heat and set aside.

in a skillet saute the onion and bell pepper til onions are clear, then top each armadillo egg and serve!

SUPER easy and full of flavor!
