Fatty Rotel Cheese Dip

November 11, 2007

     When it’s football season, Sundays become a day for snacks.  While getting supplies for game-day, I had an idea.  In the freezer I had a smoked sage fatty(breakfast sausage chub) from last week.  When i got home, I defrosted the fatty in the microwave and started to cube the 1lb Velveeta block.  After defrosting, I crumbled the fatty.  Then, added a can of Retel (diced tomatoes and green chilies) to the cheese and heated in the microwave until almost completely melted.  Next the fatty was stirred into the cheese mixture and heated until warmed through.  Served with tortilla chips and enjoy.

Armadillo Eggs

March 29, 2007

     I had a few request on what exactly is an armadillo egg.  An armadillo eggs is breakfast sausage stuffed with a jalapeno that is stuffed with cheese.  I make mini versions.  I make about 10-12 per pound of sausage.  I stuff the sausage with a cube of cheddar cheese and a slice or two of jarred jalapeno slices.  I smoke the mini eggs for about an hour or so until the sausage firms up.  Here are a few pics:
