Asian Meatballs

16 oz. Ground Chicken
16 oz. Ground Pork
1 Cup Grilled (or Roasted) Peppers, Chopped
1 Fresno Pepper - Seeded, Chopped
1" Sliced Grilled Onion (about 1/4 cup)
1 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Pepper
1 tbsp Grated Ginger
1 tbsp Low Sodium Soy Sauce
1 tsp Sugar
1 tbsp Dijon Mustard
1 tsp Toasted Sesame Oil
1/2 cup Bread Crumbs

3 tbsp Low Sodium Sauce

3 tbsp Water
3 tbsp Sugar
3 tbsp Trader Joes Sesame Soy Ginger Marinade
1 Green Onion - Thinly sliced on an angle
1 Fresno Chili - Seeded, Thinly sliced
1 tbsp Toasted Sesame Seeds

In a food processor add the grilled peppers, fresno pepper, onion, salt, pepper, ginger.  Pulse into a paste.  In a large bowl add the chicken, pork, paste mixture, soy sauce, sugar, mustard, sesame oil, bread crumbs.  With a fork, mix to combine.  Take a small scoop and microwave it about 30-45 seconds or until cooked.  Taste and adjust seasonings if necessary.

Using a small 1" scoop make balls about 1".  Put on a large cookie sheet (with sides) and bake in a 350 degree oven for about 13-15 minutes.

While meatballs are in the oven, in a large bowl add the soy sauce, mustard, water, sugar, marinade.  Mix to combine.  Let the meatballs sit for about 5 minutes then toss in the sauce.  Garnish with the green onion, fresno chili and sesame seeds.
