1. Mix cream cheese, colby jack and diced Jalapenos in a large mixing bowl. Cover and refrigerate for one hour. While you wait you it is time for special ingredient #4, so crack open your favorite brew.

2. Flatten sausage patties onto a wax paper covered tray so they are about ⅛ inch thick. Using your fingers put a small dimple in the center of each patty and add a small dollop of the cheese and pepper mix to the center. Then form them into a meat ball.

3. Lightly coat the outside of each Armadillo Egg with mustard and rub. Place the Armadillo Eggs into the smoker for about an hour or until the product reaches an internal temperature of 190 degrees. Consume more of special ingredient #4 while they cook.

4. After about an hour your Armadillo Eggs are ready to be enjoyed with more special ingredient #4. ENJOY!
