Salsa Verde Turkey Meatballs

This is a great gluten free, low carb and possible paleo recipe. We looking for an easy and not too heavy dinner and I was thinking meatballs but decided with a twist. These have a Mexican flavor profile but I didn’t go too heavy with the spice level since we were eating them solo. Had I paired them with noodles or spaghetti squash I would have added some more spice. If you were having a Mexican themed party these would make a good appetizer. We actually had them the next day on a sandwich with some mayo, lettuce, cilantro.

Directions:
1. Put everything but the last three ingredients into a food processor and combine well. Roll into balls. I use a cookie scoop to stay consistent.
2. In a medium heated cast iron skillet you will want to brown the meatballs on all sides. I huddle them to one side to help get the sides. See below.

Plate and stop with warm Salsa Verde and cilantro.
