Tex-Mex Meatballs

These meatballs are a Tex-Mex twist on an Italian classic. To keep them light, we’ve used 2%-fat turkey mince, but you could also try 5%-fat pork or beef mince instead if you prefer a more traditional meatball; they taste just as good!

Hints & Tips

Below we added some of our communities most common hints and tips. We hope you find them useful.

Swap this

Swap the turkey mince for beef or pork mince, or the kidney beans for other tinned beans (e.g. butter beans) or dried beans (soaked and cooked).

Tasty, but not spicy enough for Tex-Mex.
Try adding a hot chilli powder, or for more flavour, hot paprika and a pinch of chilli flakes.
Cooked it in my airfryer on 160° for 20min
I had no kidney beans or sweetcorn so drained baked beans and peas..
Tasty, spicy and soo moreish
Loved making these meatballs, they turned out so well and the sauce was delish. l teamed them with the spicy rice which was also yummy and as we like spicy food l added extra chilli to it, great meals for a Saturday night!

Thinking of making this recipe! Just wondering if this freezeable? It says it serves 4 and there is only 2 of us, so I’m thinking make it and then freeze half for another time? If so how long would it be okay in the freezer for? Thank you x
