Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Heat oven to 400° F.

  • Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large, preferably ovenproof skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until softened, about 3 minutes. Add the garlic and jalapeño and cook for 1 minute. Remove from heat; let cool.

  • In a large bowl, combine the pork, bread crumbs, egg, salt, pepper, cumin, and onion mixture. Shape into 12 meatballs.

  • Wipe out skillet, add the remaining oil, and heat over medium-high heat. Brown the meatballs on all sides, about 7 minutes total. If not using an ovenproof skillet, transfer the meatballs to a baking dish.

  • Pour the salsa over the top. Bake until cooked through, about 25 minutes.
