Mexican Turkey Meatball Subs
Turkey meatballs simmered in Chipotle salsa and Mexican spices bring a lot of flavor to this sandwich recipe. Ready in under 30 minutes, it’s an easy weeknight dinner you’ll definitely want to try.

1 (16-ounce) package JENNIE-O® Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast
2 tablespoons olive oil
¼ cup egg substitute or 1 egg, beaten
½ cup panko breadcrumbs
2 garlic cloves, minced
¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 teaspoon ground cumin
salt and freshly ground pepper, if desired
4 ounces HERDEZ® chipotle salsa
4 sub rolls
8 tablespoons WHOLLY GUACAMOLE® dip
½ cup crumbled feta cheese

1) Heat oven to 425°F. In large bowl, combine ground turkey, oil, egg, breadcrumbs, garlic, cilantro, cumin and salt and pepper, if desired. Mix until combined, do not pack meat too tightly while mixing. Roll mixture into 1½-inch meatballs using wet hands to reduce sticking (yields 16 meatballs). Place meatballs on silicone baking mat or parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Bake 15 minutes or until well-done, 165°F as measured by a meat thermometer.
2) In a large sauté pan bring chipotle salsa to simmer. Add cooked meatballs; stir. Simmer 10 minutes or until hot.
3) To assemble sandwiches, toast rolls until golden. Spread guacamole on top and bottom of each roll. Fill each roll with 4 meatballs and sprinkle with cheese.
* Always cook to an internal temperature of 165°F.
