These paleo spicy meatballs are an incredible dinner dish that’s relatively easy to make. The fresh tomato sauce just goes perfect with the spiciness of the meatballs.
Depending on how hungry you are these are usually fine just on their own but if you’re looking for something extra to have with these then you should try out some zucchini pasta to go with it. You can make zucchini pasta by simply putting it through a spiralizer.
If you end up with any leftovers, then make sure you keep them as they will reheat just fine. Just make sure you heat them in the tomato sauce otherwise they may go a bit dry.
One thing that you can do if you absolutely love the heat is to add some chili to the tomato sauce. This will create a truly spicy dish that will please anyone who loves their food nice and spicy.

The more you work the meatball mix the better they will hold together. If you’re having trouble getting your meatballs to hold together then you should try mixing the ingredients together for longer.
If you prefer you can cook the meatballs in the oven rather than the fry pan. You should find the meatballs are likely to hold together better that way.
