Mexican Meatball Skewers  

The secret to these delicious little meatballs, besides a healthy amount of our Smoked Chilli Paste, is the milk-soaked breadcrumbs. They give them a beautifully light and fluffy texture and once you’ve had one you won’t be able to stop…luckily this recipe makes quite a few!

We teamed up with our friends at Big Green Egg for this recipe, using their ceramic barbecue to grill these beauties to perfection. If you’re not barbecuing this could be done using a griddle pan or under the grill.

Once you’ve mastered the Mexican meatballs you should check out our post on different ways you can serve them.
