recipe: Poultry and Pork

What is better than a jalapeno popper?  How about an entire bowl of low carb, high protein, gluten-free goodness that tastes JUST like a jalapeno popper?  I hope I have your attention now.  This recipe is seriously delicious.  The smokey Mexican tomato sauce is the perfect compliment to the cheesy meatballs.  You have to try it to believe how good it is.

When I make zoodles (zucchini noodles), I use the Paderno Spiral Vegetable Slicer. By using zucchini noodles instead of normal pasta, like this recipe calls for, you save hundreds of calories and get an extra serving veggies!
