This is a confused meatball. Let’s start with chorizo; that’s Central America, but then we have ricotta and parmesan cheeses, Italian. Then we have the Japanese Panko bread crumbs and the African spice mix. Confused, right? But a soft tasty meatball. The chorizo is from Hidden Creek Farms and the ground beef is from Sierra Linda Farms. I hope you like it.
