Mexican Turkey Meatballs With Salsa Recipe

Love the taste of Mexican food? Looking for a recipe that uses lean ground turkey instead of ground beef? If so...I have a great recipe to share with you! I got this recipe about 10 years ago from my aunt and ever since then...I love making this appetizer for my family weekend get togethers.

Mexican Turkey Meatballs with Salsa Recipe

1 lb. lean ground turkey
1 large egg, beaten
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup onion, finely chopped
1/4 cup dry bread crumbs
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon cumin
4 oz. tortilla chips, finely crushed
vegetable cooking spray
3/4 cup non-fat sour cream
1/2 cup mild or spicy salsa

In a large mixing bowl combine together the ground turkey, egg, garlic, onion, bread crumbs, chili powder and cumin until all ingredients are well combined. Shape mixture into 1" round balls.

Place crushed tortilla chips on a dinner plate. Roll each meatball into the crushed tortilla chips, coating thoroughly. Lightly coat baking dish with vegetable cooking spray and arrange meatballs in dish. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 20 minutes or until meat is no longer pink in the center. In small mixing bowl, combine the sour cream and salsa. Use this dip for dunking your meatballs in or pour a small amount of dip over the meatballs for serving.
