Honey Chipotle Meatballs

One of fellow sorority sisters from college, who happens to be rightly nicknamed "Martha Stewart" for her homemaking abilities, threw an Olympics opening ceremony party and asked me to bring a little something to snack on. I took her words literally and decided to make mini meatballs coated in a spicy, but sweet glaze. And let me tell you, they went faster than the sprint runners!! (corny Olympics joke I know) These are extremely simple, and taste almost as delicious as Ryan Lochte looks. (I can't seem to stop with the Olympics jokes). Go Team USA!!

Honey Chipotle Meatballs


Ingredients:

  • 1 package ground lean turkey
  • 1/2 white onion, minced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp. fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 to 2 tsp chipotle in adobo sauce, minced
  • 2 tbsp honey

Mix turkey, onion, garlic, cilantro, salt, and pepper together. Form 25-30 mini meatballs with your hands.


Brown meatballs on all sides in a skillet with 2 tsp olive oil. Then finish off by baking them in the oven for 5 minutes on 375 degrees.

Meanwhile, heat chipotle and honey in a small saucepan until warm and blended well. Pour over meatballs and stir to coat.. serve warm.

*I kept mine warm by serving them out of my mini crock pot on low heat

And here's a few pictures from the party:
