Jazz up your low carb appetizer tray with these delicious spicy jalapeño poppers. Stuffed with chorizo and sharp cheddar, it's a party in your mouth! You have to wonder who invented the first jalapeño popper.
I have a theory that meatloaf and meatballs are basically the same thing, just in different shapes. To put my theory to the test, I made a meatloaf version of my Chicken Chorizo Meatballs (also posted on Food52). If anything, I think I like the meatloaf version even better. It's incredibly tender and juicy; the chorizo makes it spicy and rich, and the crushed tortilla chips give it texture and sweetness. It's so much more interesting and impressive than an ordinary old meatloaf.
Chicken chorizo meatballs
These little cocktail meatballs are spicy, juicy, and tender. I tweaked these from a meatloaf recipe I found online, added some toothpicks, and boom--perfect appetizer for a casual party or game-day get-together. Instead of breadcrumbs, these meatballs use crushed-up tortilla chips, which gives them a nice cornmeal sweetness (and, incidentally, makes them gluten-free!). You can crush the chips by hand, but I found that a food processor produces finer crumbs, which leads to a better texture.

Chocolate cherry breakfast bars (original recipe)
The dreaded school lunch. I don't quite know why this is, but making children's lunches for school is about as rewarding as making a beautiful gourmet dinner and then flushing it all down the toilet
