Giant Mutant Jalapenos / Atomic Buffalo Turds

So, hubby went to the grocery store for me yesterday and I asked him to get a package of fresh jalapenos so I could make Atomic Buffalo Turds (see recipe below) 
Well, apparently Aldi had the signage messed up and had these chile peppers where the jalapeno peppers should be so, hubby was probably thinking wow these are some giant mutant jalapenos and grabbed them. 
Alas.. now I need to find a recipe for chile relleno and go to the store for jalapenos. 
Yes, that is beer in my fridge.. don't hate. 
Atomic Buffalo Turd Recipe:
*credit -

  • 10 jalapeno peppers
  • 10 bacon slices, cut in half
  • 10 mini sausages or smokies (or 20 if they are very small)
  • 1 cup cream cheese
  • 1 cup grated monterey jack
  • 1 tsp chipotle powder
  • 2 shallots, minced
  1. Slice the jalapenos lengthwise. Using a spoon, remove the seeds and membrane. If using bell peppers, quarter them after they are seeded.
  2. Mix the cream cheese, monterey jack, chipotle powder and minced shallots. Fill the hollowed out portion of the peppers with the cheese mixture.
  3. Place the smokie on top of the cream cheese. Wrap the half slice of bacon around the jalapeno. If the bacon is not staying tightly wrapped, it may be necessary to use a toothpick to hold it in place.
  4. Smoke the ABTs in the smoker, set at 225F, for 2-3 hours, or until the bacon is browned
To cook on the grill: Cook on a medium heat grill until the jalapeno is tender and the bacon is browned. Keep the lid covered while cooking. To cook in the oven: Bake the ABT’s in the oven, set at 425F, for 20-30 minutes or until the bacon is browned.
