These simple meatballs (I can’t seem to stop calling them meatballs, whether there is meat in them or not!) made a great meal for the kids and I earlier this week. Simple pinto beans, rice and a handful of spices combined to create a surprisingly delicious lunch. I have seen numerous recipes for bean and rice burgers and I just couldn’t imagine what that would taste like. I was fairly suspicious of the combination, so I figured I would have my kids test them out before I made a full dinner around them.
Lighter than regular meatballs and absolutely delicious with the Chipotle Dipping Sauce; these were a huge hit with both the kids and me. My older boys were very disappointed that there weren’t more of them. I’m planning to double the recipe and make them again for dinner one night next month.
The Chipotle Sauce turned out so well, I decided it was worthy of it’s own post. I have made it twice already and we’ve served it with veggies and with chips too.
