Spicy Organic Chipotle Grilled Meatballs
Are you bored with dinner? Tired of the same old same old at your backyard BBQ? If you can handle a little heat, check out this recipe from Ivgongreen using their Chike's organic chipotle grill sauce. It's a fairly simple prep, using ground beef (best to use grass fed), Romano cheese, some garlic, onion and basil. You can eat them alone or add them to a pasta dish. Either way, get ready to turn up the heat.
Spicy Organic Chipotle Grilled Meatball Recipe
- 1 lb ground beef
- ½ cup non-flavored bread crumb
- 4 eggs
- ½ cup milk
- 1 bottle Chike’s Spicy Chipotle Organic Grill Sauce
- ¾ cup grated Romano cheese
- ½ cup onion
- 8 peeled garlic cloves
- ¼ cup parsley leaves (packed in measuring cup)
- ¼ cup basil (packed in measuring cup)
- Rough chop the onion (about 1/2
cup), take the skin off about 1/4 cup of garlic (about 6-8 cloves, or 2 ounce if you want to measure) and toss it into a food processor and pulse.
- Next, remove the leaves from the
parsley and basil and toss them into a food processor and pulse. If you don't
have a food processor just finely chop it with a knife. Toss into a big bowl with other ingredients.
- Once everything is mixed together, lightly form meatballs in your hand. The size is really up to you but remember
that bigger meatballs take longer to cook.
- Think of these as hamburgers when
you are grilling them. You want to cook them throughout but you don't want to
burn the outsides. I prefer a medium heat spread out all over about 3/4 of the
- When the fire is ready grill the
meatballs for about 10-15 minutes per side. Don't be afraid to check after 8 min.
You don't want a burnt meatball.
- After the meatballs are grilled, move
them to indirect heat and get out a cast iron skillet. Fill the skillet with
Chike’s Spicy Chipotle Organic Grill Sauce.
- Put the skillet over direct heat and
add the meatballs. Toss them around a bit to let the flavors of the meatballs
extend out into the sauce.
