Expert Tips

When forming the meatballs, the turkey meat will be very sticky. Keep forming them and the meat will roll easily.

Directions

  • 1 Rinse and drain black beans. Mash and roughly chop the beans and add them to the ground turkey.
  • 2 Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well.
  • 3 Form meatballs and cook on a hot sauté pan with olive oil, turning every so often until cooked through and golden brown.

Black beans are loved and widely used in Latin American cuisine. There are many traditional ways of preparing black beans but they are also great for new creative fusion recipes like this one. Beans add an interesting texture to these meatballs and they also help bind the turkey meat without needing breadcrumbs or eggs.
