How to Make Green Chili Turkey Meatballs


  1. Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Lightly oil a large no-stick frying pan with olive or coconut oil.
    Pre-heat the pan on medium.
  3. Scoop out meat mixture by heaping tablespoon, or medium disher/scoop. Roll into balls.
  4. Cook meatballs 6-9 minutes til cooked through, turning half way.
    Do not overcook.
  5. NOTES:
    1) You can stretch this recipe quickly and easily by mixing in a chub of turkey breakfast sausage (I use Jennie O brand)
    2) If I'm in a hurry I substitute dehydrated minced onion and a T or two of water.
    3) This can be mixed ahead of time and stored in the frig for a quick fix. Or shape the meatballs and freeze them!
    4) This recipe also makes great burgers.
    5) Using almond meal adds protein
    6) I like to bake the meatballs, and serve them with my Rosemary Chili-Lime Squash.
    They're great together, and baking together saves energy :) I start the squash while I'm making the meatballs, so they don't overcook.
    7) For appetizer, simply use a smaller scoop and cook a few minutes less.

    Super easy and delicious!
