Everyone in the family really liked these! I was quite surprised just because I thought they would have too much heat for the kids…but they didn’t seem to mind. I like the addition of the grated carrot to give it some texture and color. Next time I want to make these as an appetizer. I will form into small meatballs, stick some toothpicks in them and then serve with some buffalo ranch dressing!! Can’t wait…so yummy! 4 stars.
