Skinny Southwest Turkey Meatballs with Cilantro Dipping Sauce


Ingredients:

  • 1-1/4 lbs 99% lean ground turkey
  • 1 jalapeño, seeds removed (leave some in for spicier meatballs)
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 3 scallions
  • 1/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • pinch oregano
  • salt and fresh pepper 
  • cooking spray 
  • Cilantro Tomatillo Dipping Sauce

Lightly spray baking pan with oil. Preheat oven to 400°. Place jalapeño, garlic, cilantro, and scallions into a small food processor or chopper and pulse a few times until finely minced.

In a large bowl combine turkey, chopped herbs, bread crumbs, egg, cumin, salt and pepper. Using your hands, mix well and measure 1/4 cup meat, then divide in two so you end up with each meatball 1/8 cup in size. Roll and place on a baking pan. Bake meatballs at 400° 15 minutes. Makes 24 meatballs.
