When you think of meatballs, the first thing you think of is the type smothered in tomato sauce atop a plate of spaghetti noodles. This is the traditional method, perpetuated through TV and movies in the United States. This method is delicious, but there are so many types of meatballs throughout the world. The concept of ground meat shaped into bite sized shapes is common, and seasoned and cooked in different methods internationally.
If you love rich, seasoned bites with big flavors, why not try Tex-Mex? This flavor profile arose from settlers in Texas interacting with Mexico hundreds of years ago, and has stuck around since. Today, Texas is known for their Tex-Mex flavors, which are unique to only Texas. Go down to the border with this Tex-Mex meatball, and enjoy the flavors in every ball!
The trick to this ball is the cheese, jalapenos, parsley, garlic, and cumin in these balls. These flavors are traditionally found in Tex-Mex food, and will give your balls the flavor you deserve, not necessarily the ones you need. In addition, the secret to a good dish is in the sauce. Te sauce for this recipe calls for flavors such as adobo sauce, which will tie the dish and make your balls perfectly moist.
