THMII: Chorizo Meatballs with Homemade Chorizo

This is another recipe that I have been cooking for years, yet have not gotten around to putting on the website because of how difficult it can be to find raw chorizo mince. When you do find it, you definitely don’t want to look at the ingredients list! A big thank you to Brooke for giving me the idea of teaching people how to make their own healthy chorizo mince.

  1. We make this so often at home I know it by heart. One of our favourites! Always turns out great. Awesome with mash, pasta or salad. We add some chilli for extra kick but great without

  2. Finally made these tonight and I always follow the recipe as is to start off with.

    Next time I will add extra chilli and a cube of mozzarella to the meatballs to take them to the next level.

    Thanks for yet another amazing recipe.

  3. This was fantastic and will be a regular.
    I love the smokiness and the sauce was to die for. Served with pasta and topped with cheese.
    I want to eat this everyday..

  4. OHHHH MYYYYY HEAVENS!!!!!! Nik you’re unstoppable!!!! Superb! Delicious! Another fabulous simple quick meal THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU 👌🏻👌🏻👌🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

  5. May have just caught my husband slurping the left over sauce out of his bowl… I think we can say he definitely approved of this dinner!! Super tasty and speedy to cook. Thank you.

  6. I made this yesterday and for some reason it was really salty, even though there is no salt added in???? I only used the recommended amount of stock concentrate as that was my first thought? I obviously made an error somewhere but buggered if I know where. I served with spaghetti. I may try it again , just to work out what went wrong, maybe with chicken.

  7. I’m attempting this recipe today and was a bit confused how to cook the meatballs, as it just says insert simmering basket so assume you cook them in there, but there are so many of them do you just layer them on top of each other?

    Also one of the tips in the book is to add some cream to the bowl afterwards, what do you then do with that? Add it to the regular sauce, or use it for something else?

  8. Super easy and tasty. A bit spicy for my toddler but I found it to be the perfect amount of spice. Served it with pastas as spaghetti and meatballs.

  9. This was sooooo yummy!!!! Super quick to make. I’m not usually a fan of meatballs but these were amazing. I will be making these on a regular basis.

  10. These were an absolute hit at our house! Will be making mini chorizo meatballs to freeze and add to dishes we would normally buy chorizo for.

  11. Made these with Pork and Veal mix as that was what Aldi sold. Whole family devoured them and my kids were asking for seconds (sadly there were none). I served with the creamy Cauliflower mash. My husband commented all night how wonderful dinner was. Definitely a winner in this household. Couldn’t believe that it only took 30 minutes to make from start to finish!!

  12. These are absolutely beautiful! My husband literally thought they had chorizo in them the flavours were so spot on. Thanks Nik, these will be a regular feature on the menu in our house! xx
