Chorizo & Cheddar Cheese Meatballs

Chorizo & Cheddar Cheese Meatballs

Are you Miss Meatball? You might want to try this recipe for a change.

Ingredients:
  • 1 ½ pounds ground beef
  • 1 ½ chorizo sausages
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup tomato sauce
  • 1/3 cup pork rinds, crushed
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt

  • How to prepare:
    1. Preheat your oven to 350°F.
    2. Add your pork rinds (about 1/3 of a bag) to the food processor.
    3. Pulse the pork rinds until they are crushed completely. We will be using these to bind the meatballs together.
    4. Place your chorizo sausage in a large mixing bowl.
    5. Add your ground beef to the mixture. Don’t touch it just yet.
    6. Add your crushed pork rinds on top of the ground beef.
    7. Add your cheddar cheese to the ground beef.
    8. Measure out your cumin, chili powder, salt and eggs. Add them to the ground beef mixture – this is where the fun begins.
    9. Mix everything together well using your hands. This is going to get messy, but don’t worry about it!
    10. Roll your meatballs out and rest them in a foiled baking tray.
    11. Make sure your meatballs are spread out evenly to allow proper cooking. Some grease and cheese will seep out of the meatballs so you don’t want them to get stuck together.
    12. Let them cool for 5 minutes or so, and remove them from the grease filled tray.
    13. Serve with tomato sauce on each!
