Pig Shots Recipe with Green Chilies in the Air Fryer
They taste way better than they look!

I recently made these “pig shots” for a vlog on my YouTube channel, and I thought I would post the recipe here in case anyone wants it. I make mine in the air fryer, but you could easily adapt this to a regular oven or grill.

I eat these very occasionally as part of my carnivore diet, but they can be enjoyed by anyone. They’re also good if you’re just on a general keto or low-carb diet. Just watch how many you eat, because the carbs from cheese add up fast.

Pig Shots with Green Chilies in the Air Fryer

Bacon-wrapped sausages with a cream-cheese filling. Great for the carnivore or keto diets.
Servings: 2 people


  • 2 pork sausages any variety
  • 12 slices bacon
  • 8 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 4 ounces cheddar cheese shredded
  • 2 ounces chopped green chilies


  • Preheat the air fryer to 385 degrees.
  • Slice the pork sausages into rounds – about 12 per sausage for a total of 24 slices.
  • Cut the bacon in half. Wrap a half slice of bacon around each of the sausage rounds, leaving space on top to hold the filling. Put a toothpick through each "shot" to hold it together while cooking.
  • In a mixing bowl, soften the cream cheese in the microwave for 30 – 45 seconds. Add the shredded cheese and green chilies to the softened cream cheese. Mix well. (Add as many or as few green chilies as you like.)
  • Spoon the cream cheese mixture into a plastic Ziploc bag and snip off one corner to make a piping bag (or put the mixture into an actual icing piping bag). Pipe the filling into each of the "shots," filling it to the top.
  • Place the "shots" into the air fryer and cook for 12 minutes. Remove with tongs; they will be hot. Serve warm and refrigerate leftovers. It may take several batches to cook them all depending on the size of your air fryer.

Recipe Notes

For sausages, I use Aidell’s Cajun Andouille pork sausages, but you can use any kind you like. I think a grass-fed beef sausage would be very nice in this recipe.

If you don’t have or like green chilies, you can use a diced jalapeno pepper or any pepper of your choice – or leave the peppers out completely.

Measurements listed above are not precise. Use as much or as little shredded cheese and green chilies as you like. I basically eyeball it when I make this recipe. I make about 24 pig shots from two sausages, but you can easily double or triple this to serve more people.
