Honey-Chipotle Turkey Meatballs


These smokey sweet meatballs will be a big hit at your party. They're glazed in a sauce made from honey, chopped chipotle chiles in adobo sauce, and cider vinegar.


  • 1 ½ pounds ground turkey

  • ½ yellow onion, diced small

  • 2 garlic cloves, minced

  • ½ teaspoon fine salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper

  • 2 tablespoons honey

  • 1 to 2 tablespoons chopped chipotle chiles in adobo sauce

  • 2 teaspoons cider vinegar

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a medium bowl, mix together turkey, onion, garlic, salt, and ground pepper until combined (do not overmix). Form into 16 meatballs. In a small bowl, stir together honey, chiles, and vinegar.

  2. In a large ovenproof skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high. Add meatballs and cook until browned on all sides, 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer skillet to oven and bake 5 minutes. Remove from oven, pour honey mixture over meatballs, and swirl skillet to coat; bake until liquid is reduced and meatballs are glazed, 5 minutes, swirling halfway through.
