In this video, Nick Massie of PaleoNick.com shares his recipe for Mexican Meatballs, a delicious blend of grass-fed ground beef, vegetables and spices.
Massie’s meatballs get their kick from chipotle powder, cinnamon, garlic and the Paleo Nick spice blend Super Radical Rib Rub.
Squash calabacitas rounds out the dish, providing the carbohydrate that balances the protein in the meatballs.
While the meatballs brown in one skillet, Massie sautés the vegetables in another. He toasts the garlic, onions, peppers and spices before adding the squashes, mushrooms and tomato puree.
Massie is the instructor for the CrossFit Specialty Course Culinary Ninja, which is designed to give you confidence in the kitchen while you learn the basics of balanced recipe development as informed by CrossFit’s nutrition principles.
