Spicy Spanish Albondigas (Meatballs)

Spicy Spanish Albondigas (Meatballs) created by lazyme

These little meatballs have a great kick and so much more flavor than traditional meatballs. Serve with additional Tabasco for sprinkling, and some very cold beer! When we were in Spain, San Miguel was the local favorite beer, but Dos Equis would be just as good!

    Very tasty indeed! I used 300 g of ground beef and 250 g of chorizo - I needed a bit more egg to hold everything together but I do think the eggs were exceptionally small. Used 1 tbls of Tabasco and the meatballs still weren't in any way hot (though very flavourful - definitely!) so I think I'll up the amount the next time even further. I used my 1" cookie scoop to form these into balls and got exactly 30. Great recipe that I will absolutely use again, thank you!

    These didn't really taste so different from the regular meatballs -- I couldn't taste the spiciness. Chorizo might also have been too much
