Happy Tuesday! The recipe of the day is Turkey Meatball Fajita – succulent turkey meatballs with sautéed peppers and onions, wrapped up with some other extras! 🙂
I’ve never had meatballs in a wrap till now. I’ve missed a lot. These wraps are so rich and juicy you barely need anything else. But because I’m greedy, I had them with sauteed peppers and onions, some hot sauce and a tiny bit of light mayo.
The peppers and onions kind of turned them into fajitas I think, but honestly, cheese, guacamole and other topping would be just too much. As I said, the meatballs, peppers and onions are more than enough. Plus, they work perfectly together and adding other ingredients would spoil the whole thing. 🙂 However, I should’ve made more of the peppers. The kids really enjoyed them and snacked on them. Make sure not to overcook them though. Leave them a bit crunchy, thus they taste much better. 🙂
Why I used turkey mince? Well, I simply love it. Even though it says it’s lean on the pack and there’s less fat in it, it still tastes amazing – really juicy, which is not typical for lean meat, especially turkey, I guess.
Anyway, I recommend it! Also, it’s supposed to be a healthier option. 🙂 They’re really simple to make – some breadcrumbs, seasoning and one egg. Then simply sautee some peppers and onions and serve on a tortilla wrap! Simple and absolutely delicious!
Here’s how to make these beautiful Turkey Meatball Fajita Wraps
- 400g turkey mince

- In a bowl mix the turkey mince, chopped onion, breadcrumbs, cumin, nutmeg, parsley and the egg. Season with some salt and pepper to taste and make the meatballs.

- In another pan, heat some olive oil and gently sautée the peppers and onions for about 10 minutes.

I added three meatballs on my wrap but it turned that was way too much. Two is actually more then enough, but whatever you fancy, really.
I hope you enjoy this recipe. Stay tuned for more coming soon.
