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.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

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.

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.
