Kick up your meatballs with one easy and special ingredient – hummus! Once you try Chipotle Hummus Meatballs, you’ll never go back to your old meatball recipe again!
Can I get three cheers for Friday?! Actually, can I get a bonus cheer because it’s National Hummus Day?!
I’ve never been able to figure out who actually comes up with the national food holidays or if anyone can actually declare a specific day a food holiday but I really do love them. It’s a fun way to change up what you eat for the day because it’s shrimp day, cheese day or chocolate chip cookie day.
Not that I really need a specific day to tell me to eat any of these foods, I’ll happily enjoy them at all times. Especially hummus.
I honestly believe that hummus might be one of those perfect foods that have so many creative uses it’ll take a lifetime before you try each one!
Oh yes, you heard right. The hummus goes IN the meatballs. Get ready to have some of the best meatballs of your life and it’s all thanks to the very special and not so secret ingredient of Sabra Hummus.
I totally get it if you see that tub of Sabra and think where are the pitas, it’s snack time. However, trust me when I say that cooking with hummus is life changing. Not only does it add moisture to the food but it’s a boost of flavor and gives a little crackly hummus crust to the outside of whatever you use it in. This right here is a triple threat!
These Chipotle Hummus Meatballs are so easy to make too, all it takes is about 30 minutes of your time for a great start to your unofficial meal, a simple appetizer or my preferred way on top of some mini toasted naan with extra hummus and a healthy dollop of tzatziki sauce.
The best part? You can change up the flavor to whatever mood strikes your fancy. I personally love that little bit of heat from the chipotle hummus, which gets offset by the sweetness of the onions in the meatballs and cooling tzatziki sauce.
