In a large oven-safe skillet (we’re using a cast iron skillet) heat 1 tsp of olive oil over medium heat. Add tasso, onions, bell peppers, garlic, 1 tsp of Slap Ya Mama Hot Blend Seasoning and 1 tsp of Slap Ya Mama Cajun Pepper Sauce. Sautee until the onions are browned. Remove skillet from heat and stir in green onions and parsley, mix well and set aside.
With a knife, cut a pocket along the side of each pork chop. Try to make the opening as small as possible while creating the pocket as large as possible on the inside of the pork chop. Using a spoon, stuff each pork chop with the tasso filling until full. You can either use toothpicks or string to help hold the pocket closed. Season the outside of the pork chops with the Slap Ya Mama Original Blend Seasoning and the remaining Slap Ya Mama Cajun Pepper Sauce; being sure to rub the seasoning into the pork chops.
Using the same skillet, being sure to leave the remnants from the tasso filling in the skillet, heat 1 tsp of olive oil over medium-high heat and brown each pork chop for about 3 minutes on each side or until browned. Place skillet and pork chops in the oven and bake at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes or until the internal temperature of the pork chops reaches 155 degrees F using a meat thermometer.

4 chicken breast halves, boneless & skinless, pounded to 1/2” thickness
In a large skillet over medium heat add olive oil, garlic and jalapenos. Sautéuntil garlic starts to brown. Reduce heat to medium-low, add spinach leaves and sauté until wilted. Add 1 tsp Slap Ya Mama Original Blend Seasoning, pepper jack cheese and sour cream. Stirring continuously, cook mixture until cheese is melted.
On a clean surface, lay chicken breasts flat and season with the remaining 2 tsp of Slap Ya Mama Original Blend Seasoning. Spoon a little spinach mixture onto each breast. Roll up each breast with spinach mixture inside and wrap each breast with 2 or 3 slices of bacon, securing the ends with a toothpick.
Arrange breast on a baking dish. Bake uncovered at 375 degrees F for 35 minutes. Then set oven to broil and broil for 10 minutes or until bacon is browned. Remove toothpicks, slice into medallions or serve whole and enjoy!
20 toothpicks, soaked in water for about 15 minutes
Preheat oven to 350°. In a bowl, combine cream cheese, garlic, sun dried tomatoes, Slap Ya Mama Hot Blend Seasoning and cilantro. Mix well and set aside. With a jalapeno laying on it’s side, slice it open creating a seam lengthways along the jalapeno. Then make a cross cut (about ¾ of the way through the jalapeno) just below the top of the jalapeno which in conjunction with the other cut will create a “T” shaped cut in the jalapeno. Carefully open the jalapeno and with a small paring knife carefully remove the core and seeds creating an empty shell. Rinse and set aside. With a spoon or even your fingers, fill each jalapeno with the cream cheese mixture. Be sure not to overfill, the jalapeno should still be able to close up. Wrap each jalapeno with one strip of lightly cooked bacon, securing it in place with about 2 toothpicks per jalapeno. Place jalapenos in a baking dish with their “T” shaped slits facing up and bake for approximately 45 minutes. Serve and enjoy!
Note: These may also be cooked on a grill. If cooking on a grill, cook over medium heat turning occasionally until bacon is crispy.
If you are using wild duck you will want to marinade it to help remove the gamey taste. In a bowl, marinade your duck breast in whole milk for approximately one hour. Drain the milk, add coke to bowl and let marinade for another hour.
Once finished with marinade, remove the duck breast, let drain and pat dry with a paper towel. With a sharp knife, cut a small pocket lengthways along the duck breast. Be careful not to cut all the way through the breast. Now, place duck breast into a bowl and season generously with Slap Ya Mama Original Blend Cajun Seasoning and add a few dashes of Slap Ya Mama Cajun Pepper Sauce to the mix. Set aside.
In a small microwavable bowl, place your cream cheese and heat for about a minute to help soften the cream cheese. While your cream cheese is in the microwave, slice your jalapenos lengthways into thin strips (remove jalapeno seeds unless you like it really spicy). Once your cream cheese is soft, add the thin strips of jalapeno to the bowl of cream cheese and mix. Be sure to cover all jalapeno strips with cream cheese.
Now take your duck breast and with your fingers, place the cream cheese covered jalapeno strips into the pocket you created in the duck breast. Depending on how thick or thin you sliced the jalapenos will determine how many strips you will use to stuff the duck breast. Once all of your duck breasts have been stuffed, it is now time to wrap them in bacon. For each breast, lay down two slices of bacon side by side. Place one duck breast onto your bacon slices and roll the duck breast and bacon together. To keep the bacon wrapped around the duck, place a toothpick at the end of each bacon slice with the toothpick going all the way through the breast. Continue this process until all duck breast have been wrapped in bacon.
Grill over medium heat, turning occasionally for about 15 – 30 minutes depending on the thickness of the duck breast. Be sure not to over cook them, as it will dry out the duck breast. Don’t forget to remove all toothpicks from the breast.
Drizzle the black cherry sauce over the bacon wrapped duck breast or use it as a dipping sauce and enjoy.
Black Cherry Topping Sauce (optional)
This black cherry sauce goes great with this dish and really adds that sweetness that goes so great with the spiciness of the jalapenos and Slap Ya Mama.
Black Cherries - canned or fresh (if fresh be sure to remove the pits)
2 Garlic Cloves - crushed or minced
12oz. Chicken Stock
1 Steam of Fresh Tarragon - minced
With a blender or food processor, blend the black cherries into slush. Now add the black cherries, garlic, chicken stock and tarragon into a medium saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil then let simmer and reduce until you have a thick sauce.
