Recipe

Lately it has been lovely and rainy in Los Angeles. For me that’s kind of perfect because it feels a bit more like being back at home during the holidays. There isn’t any snow, but curling up on the couch under a blanket feels just perfect without any guilt that I should be outside. And a bowl of these yummy meatballs on my lap? Even better. They are warm, spicy, and make a perfect taco or entree with rice. I enjoyed mine over a bowl of cauliflower rice (trying to cut back this week after the holiday) and was completely content.

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a large mixing bowl use your hands to mix together the chicken, salt, egg, half the oregano, half the diced onion, half the adobo sauce, and breadcrumbs until well combined.
  3. Roll out about 4 meatballs per serving and place on a baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray. Bake for twenty minutes.
  4. Meanwhile in a blender combine the diced tomatoes, remaining onion, garlic, remaining oregano, and Magi sauce. Add chipotles one at a time and taste until it is at your desired spice level. Season with salt as needed.
  5. Pour into a large pot and add the bay leaf. Bring to a simmer. Add the meatballs and simmer for an additional 20-30 minutes. Serve over cauliflower rice or as tacos and pair with extra adobo sauce on the side.
