I know, I know…more meatballs. But I needed a good recipe for yesterday that would keep me on track. Oh my god, these were spicy (easy to make them less!) and delicious! I ate about a half a pound. Oh well…as long as you’re following the diet, eat away!!
SUPER SPICY MEXICAN MEATBALLS
1 1/4 lb ground turkey
1/2 cup oak bran
1 jalapeno, chopped
1/2 small onion, chopped
six slices of spicy carrots, chopped (i find mine by the cheese in the refrigerated section but you can find them canned by the salsa too!)
2 lite string cheeses, chopped
1 T of adobo sauce from a can of chipotle peppers
1/2 cup fat free cottage cheese
1 t salt
1/2 t ancho chili powder
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
Mix all ingredients by hand, careful not to handle too much. Make 4 dozen small meatballs and bake at 400 for 15 minutes. Remove and brush Chipotle-Maple Sauce on them and bake for another 5 minutes. Serve with extra sauce.
1/4 cup sugar free maple syrup
1 4 oz can chipotle peppers
Pulse in a food processor or blender until well blended and chunks are gone. Save extra sauce in the fridge.
