Honey Chipotle Meatball Bowls

These are such a delicious and easy lunch prep which is always what I like! The meatballs smothered in this sweet and extra spicy sauce are AMAZING!

These are made with 99% ground turkey but ground chicken or 96/4% beef would be great alternatives as well. Add in corn salsa and rice and you have yourself a filling and delish meal!

Honey Chipotle Meatball Bowls

These turned out so delicious! I made these with 99% ground turkey but they would be yummy made with ground chicken or 96/4% beef too!
They have quite a kick to them but you can reduce the amount of adobo chipotle peppers and sauce if you need. OR you can add more brown sugar and/or honey for more sweetness.
This was an incredibly quick and easy lunch prep which I will definitely be making on repeat!
