Craig Allen’s Taco Meatballs
I'll just say that this dish is becoming a fast family favorite! (gotta love the alliteration).
I love spicy food...I love meatballs (as in spaghetti and)..so, this is a taste marriage made in heaven, as far as I am concerned!
Now, I'll share with YOU!
2 C tortilla chips (crushed)
2 lb ground turkey
salt (to taste)
1 packet of taco seasoning
That's it! Let's get to the making part!
Take out your aggression! You KNOW that you need to...that you want to!
CRUSH tortilla chips until you have 2 cups worth (almost the whole bag in my case).
Mix the meat, eggs, crushed chips, taco seasoning and salt (if you feel it needs more)...
YES...it all mixes together!
Use a melon baller (an ice cream scoop worked for me), to make small meatballs.
Place the meatballs in an "oiled" baking dish (ABOVE).
Bake for 8 minutes at 400 degrees...
Remove the meatballs from the oven...turn them (gently)...and then cover them...
You can also cover them in cheese, or any other "topping" that you feel like! Be creative (if you dare).
Then put them back in the oven...
Bake at 400 degrees for another 25-30 minutes.
Let the meatballs cool a bit...then plate 'em up!
Serve with more salsa, and (UNcrushed) tortilla chips!
Garnish with scallions and sour cream, if you wish!
I'm thinking...sometime...I might serve them with some pasta noodles!
