We love meatballs, and can happily eat them every week. Sometimes we like a little variety. For instance, we switch out lean ground beef for lean turkey, and spice them up with some Southwestern seasonings, some chopped jalapeno pepper and a generous does of fresh chopped cilantro.

Recipe Ingredients for Spicy Turkey Meatballs

1 medium onion, finely chopped
2/3 cup dry breadcrumbs
2 egg whites
1/3 cup nonfat milk
1/2 cup finely chopped cilantro
1 pound lean ground turkey

2 tsp ground cumin
5 cups
12 oz
