This a great main dish which I did. It is a little spicy and the whiskey gives it a great taste and makes the meat balls very juicy. (Use your favorite whiskey; my fave, McALBERT, is a Dominican whiskey!)
Iin a large bowl add the ground beef, 3 or more chopped chipotle (add.
also some of its adobo sauce), oregano, garlic, adobo powder,egg, wheat flour and the whiskey; mix well.
Make medium size balls by using a ice scream scoop and then rolling with both your palms. While doing this put the oil in a deep frying pan and heat the oil before adding the meat ball. Add as many meat balls as fit in pan. Leave each side for about 5 to 7 minutes or medium brown.
While the meat ball is cooking start preparing the sauce in a deep pot add the tomato paste, some adobo powder, some adobo sauce from the chipotles, garlic paste, some oregano, a lil bit of whiskey, chopped onions, and thyme.
Once all the meatballs are done, put them on the side.
Turn on the heat. Once the sauce starts sizzling stir and then add a cup of water. Add the meatballs and let it boil until the sauce is thick to your preference.
