Ingredients
  • 1 lb. ground turkey breast
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 small jalapeno, diced small ribs and seeds removed
  • 1 small red onion, diced small
  • 1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 3/4 cup bbq sauce
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
Instructions
  1. In a large bowl combine turkey, egg, jalapeno, onion, spices, and breadcrumbs. Using  your hands combine well. Roll into 18 golf ball sized meatballs.

  2. Add olive oil to your instant pot and turn on the saute setting. Add meatballs in a single layer (you may need to do this in batches) and cook until browned on both sides, 5-6 minutes. 

  3. In a small bowl whisk together bbq sauce and water. Add to instant pot and gently stir around. Place lid on the instant pot and turn to "sealing" position.

  4. Use the manual button and set for 10 minutes. When time is complete use the quick release method (carefully) and serve with your favorite side dish. 

  5. Optionally top with chopped cilantro and extra jalapenos.
