Crockpot Mango Meatballs


2 lbs of ground turkey

1 bundle of green onions, diced

1 t minced dried garlic

1/2 t sea salt

1 bottle of mango coconut pepper sauce*


Add onions and spices to turkey.  Form into 30 balls.  Brown in a bit of oil.  Set crock pot to high to get the surface hot. Turn temp to low.  Place half the balls into crockpot and pour half the sauce on top.  Repeat.  

Cook for two hours,  Stir after one hour and move the lid sideways for the last hour.

Garnish with cilantro. Serve with your favorite rice dish.  I make a white rice with peppers and onions to add more veggies to the meal…which I will post soon.


  • The mango sauce I use is the mango coconut pepper sauce in a bottle made by the Tropical Pepper Co,  but any sauce can be substituted.  I particularly like this one because it is slightly piquant and slightly sweet.
