Was not going to make it to Sams for 10 lbs boneless Chick quarters and had other things happening so I decided to try something different. One of the many questions that seems to always need an answer is “what to do with leftovers”?
My two favorite cooking methods are smoking of course and fried foods. My two favorite styles of food are Italian and Mexican next to BBQ. I was watching TV with my wife last night and had an epiphany. Combine em all! Just do it! It can’t be good for you but hey, you are not going to eat these all the time so just do it!
What I will need for the experiment:
1 cup left over PP or other Smoked meat! (Well chopped)
2 TBS Chili Sauce-
1 Tsp Chili powder
1 Tsp Tabasco Chipotle Sauce
1 small hot chili pepper seeded and diced
1 small can Ro Tel tomatoes and green chilies ( to use as a dip or make RoTel cheese dip)
1 cup shredded cheddar or cheese of your choice.
Pasta Ravioli Dough rolled out and cut in 4 inch circles (Sandy making for me. LOL)
In small skillet combine meat, chili sauce, chili powder, chipotle sauce, and diced pepper. You may need a small amount of water depending on fat content but sauté down till pepper is tender. Depending on the rub you used for the pork you may need a dash of salt. Set aside to cool.
On the 4 inch pasta circles place 1/2 Tsp of the meat mixture and a dollop of cheese. Dampen the outside edge of the pasta circle with water or egg wash and fold over creating a ½ moon shape or (ear). Press and seal edges firmly. Once you have the Devil Ears all made start your deep fryer. Yep fry the ravioli golden Shooter! Just do it! As they come out of the fryer dust them with that ugly dry parmesan cheese! LOL. Now place a cocktail glass of RoTel in center of a serving plate and arrange the ears. Garnish as you wish.

Well were they any good? Sandy and I ate a dozen and complained the whole time we wish we had some Pizza sauce to dip these in. LOL. The Ro Tel fell flat but the Devil Ears should be a hit with Pizza sauce or a chili cheese dip. Will do them again for sure.
