You know my favorite thing about football? The food! My goal is to score a touchdown with my GUESTS! Lol. But seriously, game day food can be decadent! Sometimes it’s fun to put a lighter spin on at home tailgating.

I got all my ingredients at Randall’s because you can save on many products at Albertsons, Tom Thumb and Randalls with the Stock Up Sale starting in-store on October 4th!

The first thing on my list is COCA-COLA® ZERO SUGAR! It’s light, refreshing, and perfect for game day. The new COCA-COLA® ZERO SUGAR has more real Coca-Cola® flavor, still without any sugar. I found it in the aisle with the sodas and on an end cap with mini-cans, glass bottles and more!

Once you have all your ingredients this recipe is simple and fun! It only takes a few minutes to prepare. It’s actually a twist on a recipe called an “Armadillo Egg”. An Armadillo Egg always uses jalapenos and not sweet mini peppers and the outside is wrapped in sausage.

But we love using these mini peppers because I know so many people that avoid spicy foods. Honestly, that taste totally delicious with the bell pepper! The trick is when you are cooking them, to be sure you know the difference between the bell pepper and the jalapeno!

If you haven’t cooked with fresh jalapenos before be careful! My trick is to make sure every seed is removed completely. I always rinse the jalapeno before stuffing it. Then when I’m done cutting them, I wash my hands thoroughly.

When you are making the traditional Armadillo Eggs, there’s no need to season the meat. But when you make these Skinny Jalapeno Popper Stuffed Meatballs it’s important to season it. The egg is to help your turkey hold together.

Try to use a thin layer of  turkey when wrapping your peppers. And make sure that your peppers are completely covered and that nothing is peaking out. #shop armadillo eggs before the oven pop shop america recipes
