Chorizo meatball sliders are an easy and flavor-filled way to feed the whole family! Inspired by Italian meatball sandwiches, these sliders served on sweet potato buns are a spicy and healthy spin on the classic sandwich. 


  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 large shallot, finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 Tablespoons water
  • 1/4 cup almond meal
  • 3 Tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/2 pound spicy ground chorizo
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
  2. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add shallot and garlic and saute until the shallot is translucent, about 3 minutes.
  3. While the shallot and garlic is cooking, beat the egg and water together in a large bowl. Add almond meal, cilantro, chili powder, cumin, and oregano. Mix thoroughly.
  4. Add in the sauteed shallot and garlic, along with the beef and chorizo. Add salt to taste. Use your hands to mix until fully combined.
  5. Spray a baking sheet with olive oil. Using your hands, shape mixture into 2 inch diameter meatballs – you should get 16 – and arrange them on your baking sheet.
  6. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until the meatballs are cooked through.
  7. Serve on sweet potato rounds (I toasted mine but you could roast them too!) with lettuce, guacamole, and more cilantro!
