Recipe - Chipotle Meatballs

Yesterday I made a really delicious meat sauce and served over spaghetti squash.  I overshot and accidentally took out an extra pound of meat.  That extra pound of meat had to be used up, and meatballs are a huge favourite of the kid over here, so I figured these would be the perfect option for dinner tonight.  This recipe is adapted from Practical Paleo.


You'll need:
1 lb ground beef
1 chipotle pepper, chopped
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper

Preheat your oven to 375*.








In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients.  Get in there with your hands, to make sure it's mixed thoroughly.










Form into balls.  I used roughly 2 Tbsp for each meatball.












Sear in a hot pan.  I put a bit of bacon grease into mine before cooking the meatballs.












When brown, turn the meatballs.  Put into the oven and bake for approximately 12 minutes or until a thermometer reads 165*.











I served these alongside a bowl of Broc-cauli 
Stew and it was a really delicious combination.
