I made some meatballs for my lunch to go with some Spaghetti Squash and I thought I'd share. 1 lb Ground Turkey Breast 1 egg 1/2 a medium onion 3 jalepenos 1 lime 1/2 C Cilantro 1 T Garlic Powder 1 tsp Paprika 1 T salt 1 T pepper For anyone who doesn't know, handling fresh jalepenos is a bit hazardous. You can get capsaicin in your skin that burns and accidentally spread it to an eye, nose, ear or mouth. I reccommend wearing latex gloves while handling jalepenos. You can also keep them on if you find mashing ground turkey and eggs with your fingers gross. Preheat an oven to 350* F Clean your jalepenos. I like to cut the stems off, split them lengthwise and then scrape out the placenta and seeds with a teaspoon. If you want to skyrocket the heat, just leave the placenta and seeds in there. Mince. Cut the rind off the lime and chop it up. You don't have to worry about properly mincing lime since the soft fleshy material will break up as you make meatballs Peel and mince your onion as finely as possible. Mix all your ingredients in a bowl and be sure to mash them together as much as possible with your fingers. Divide the meat into 6 portions and place in a 9" diameter round pan. I used a cake round. Bake at 350* for ~45 minutes. To test if your meatballs are done poke them with a toothpick and see if any pink liquid comes out of the hole. Let them rest for at least 10 minutes before serving/packing your lunches for the week.
