Mexi-Meatballs with Mango Salsa Puree
I LOVE MEXICAN FOOD. Anything spicy will do really and salsa is pretty much my favorite food next to avocado and bacon (both of which could be added to this recipe). So here’s any easy throw-together recipe that is sure to please.
- Prep Time: 10min
- Cook Time: 30min
- Meals: 3-4
- 1lb grass-fed beef
- .7lb chorizo sausage
- 2 tomatoes
- 2 jalapenos
- 1 sweet onion
- 1 mango
- spices (chili powder, parika, cumin, garlic salt, s&p)
Preheat the oven to 400F and combine the beef and chorizo in a bowl. Throw in A LOT of chili powder, paprika, and cumin as well as two minced jalapenos. Mix this all together and roll into meatballs sized between a golf ball and a tennis ball. Toss in the oven.
While that is cooking slice up your tomatoes, onion and mango and throw in a food processor. Pull off some cilantro leaves and throw in as well (start with a little and you can always add more later). Add a squeeze of lime with some garlic salt and process to a puree.
When the meatballs are done (about 30min) just add some salsa on top and chow down! The mango salsa helps to cool off the spicy meatballs and it taste incredible. This was my first recipe using a food processor and if you don’t have one you SHOULD get one. Not only can you make some cool shit but you can literally throw in huge chunks of whatever and it does all the work for you. Enjoy!
