Chorizo Breakfast Meatballs – Paleo and Whole30

  • Yield: Serves 3-4 1x


  • 1 pound ground chorizo
  • 1/4 cup finely diced red onion
  • 1/4 cup finely diced green pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil – if browning on the stovetop first


  1. Mix chorizo, onion and green pepper in a large bowl
  2. Roll into balls (your desired size) and set aside
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  4. In a large skillet, heat oil and add in meatballs
  5. Cook for 3 minutes on one side and then flip
  6. Line a baking sheet with tinfoil and a oven safe wire baking rack
  7. Place meatballs on rack and bake for 20 minutes, or until meatballs are cooked thoroughly
  8. Note- You don’t need to use a rack for baking but chorizo meat tends to be greasy so to eliminate the grease in your meatballs, the rack allows it to drip off onto the bottom of the pan
