Nacho & Chorizo Meatballs

It's party time and you'd like an appetizer that would really wow your guests. So let me be honest....this recipe is a cheat. In fact, we should probably just rename the dish Lori Loughlin Meatballs. Maybe Lance Armstrong Meatballs. Alex Rodriguez Meatballs.

Why is this recipe cheating? Because you will be taking two of the most delicious flavors on earth and crafting them into a single Frankenball. Nacho Cheese Chips (ground up in a food processor) and Mexican Chorizo Sausage. A marriage made in heaven. And for supporting rolls in the wedding party....Mexican cheese, pickled jalapeño, still my heart. Then throw in some sour cream and salsa, guacamole and hot sauce for dipping. Winning!

1/2 pound fresh Mexican chorizo, casings removed
1/2 pound ground pork
1-1/4 cups Bisquick
3/4 cup finely ground Doritos (nacho cheese flavor) 
8 ounces shredded Mexican cheese blend
2 tablespoons finely chopped pickled jalapeña
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

1 cup sour cream
1/3 cup prepared salsa


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. 
  2. In a large bowl, combine together sausage, pork, Bisquick, Doritos, cheese, jalapeño, and cilantro until well blended.
  3. Using a small ice cream scoop, scoop and roll 1-inch balls and place 1-inch apart on prepared baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven until cooked through, about 20 minutes.
  4. While sausage balls bake, stir together sour cream and salsa. Serve sausage balls with sour cream-salsa dip, and if desired, guacamole and hot sauce.

Pairing: Pacifico
