Green Chile & Aged Cheddar Turkey Meatball Skewers

Blue Moose of Boulder products have easily become some of my favorites. They make so many delicious goodies - hummus, cheese dips, salsas, and pesto, and they really are all SO good! As we're getting further into football season, it really hit me - they have the BEST game days eats! Veggies or chips with any of their dips or some pesto skewers would make for a huge hit during any entertaining you're doing this football season.

That being said, I decided I wanted to kick it up another notch and create even more options with these already delicious products. So over the next few weeks I'll be playing around with some fun football-ready recipes that are perfect to serve when you're watching the big game.

I decided to kick it off with some turkey meatballs. I thought the Green Chile & Aged Cheddar Cheese Spread would be the perfect way to pack that extra flavor into some mini meatballs. The idea was to make little appetizer-sized cheeseburger bites. I added some fresh burger toppings to the skewers, and they made for the perfect football snack!  

Here's What You'll Need:

-1 lb ground turkey
-1 egg
-1/2 cup whole wheat bread crumbs
-1/2 tsp sea salt
-1/4 tsp black pepper
-2 cloves garlic, pressed or minced
-3 tbsp Blue Moose of Boulder Green Chile & Aged Cheddar Cheese Spread
-2 large tomatoes, chopped
-About 30 (spicy) dill pickle slices
-About 30 toothpicks

Makes 25-30 mini meatballs


1) Preheat your oven to 400 degrees, and spray a pan with (olive oil) cooking spray.
2) Mix together the ground turkey, egg, bread crumbs, salt, pepper, garlic, and cheese spread in a bowl using your hands.
3) Scoop out tablespoon amounts of the mixture and form into small balls with your hands, spreading out evenly on the pan.
4) Cook the meatballs for about 15 minutes until they are fully cooked through. Remove from the oven.
5) Fold a pickle slice in half and push it to the top of the toothpick with about a finger's amount of room. Add a tomato chunk, and finish the skewer off with a turkey meatball.
6) Continue until all the meatballs are used.
7) Serve, and enjoy!

You can also serve them with the dipping sauce of your choosing, but I honesty loved them as is. Let me know what you think in the comments below!
