Stuffed Chipotle Meatballs

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon uncooked long-grain white rice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 cup finely diced onion
  • 3 hard-boiled eggs, cut into quarters
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup canned plain tomato sauce
  • 2 canned chipotle chiles in adobo sauce
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

How to Make It

Step 1

 

In a medium bowl, combine beef, egg, rice, salt, and onion. Mixture will be soft. Form meat into 12 thin patties, each about 3 in. wide. Put a wedge of hard-boiled egg in center of each patty, then press meat around eggs, forming 12 balls. Cover and refrigerate while you prepare sauce.

Step 2

 

In a blender or food processor, combine chicken broth, tomato sauce, chipotles, and garlic; blend until smooth. Pour sauce through strainer into a medium saucepan and add meatballs and bay leaf. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer. Cover pot and cook meatballs in sauce, turning occasionally, until they're cooked through, about 25 minutes. Pour over rice and sprinkle with cilantro.
