Ingredients
  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 9 ounces pork chorizo
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup salsa verde
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
Suggested Servings
  • corn tortillas
  • crumbled Queso Fresco or Cotija cheese
  • Mexican cream or sour cream
  • fresh chopped cilantro
  • lime juice
Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Coat a large baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray; set aside.

  2. In a large bowl, mix together the ground chicken, chorizo, egg, salsa verde, salt, and breadcrumbs until just combined (mixture will be sticky.)

  3. Using a tablespoon sized cookie scoop, form the meatballs.

  4. Warm the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add meatballs in batches, if necessary, and cook for about 2 minutes per side until they form a nice crust. 

  5. Transfer to the prepared baking sheet. Place in the oven and bake for 15 minutes.

  6. Divide meatballs among corn tortillas and sprinkle with Cotija cheese and cilantro.

Recipe Notes

• Use a high quality salsa verde for the best flavor.

• You can also serve these with Spanish rice, instead of tortillas.
