Raspberry Chipotle Meatballs

Yes! More meatballs.

I’m not a big fan of fruit. I don’t know why. I just rarely eat fruit on its own. But combine the fruit with meat, and I’m there. I love the combination. So when I found some raspberries in the supermarket the other day, I figured, I could do something with this….


  • 750g ground pork
  • 150g bacon
  • 150g raspberries
  • 1 red onion (200g)
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 150 grams raspberries
  • 1 tablespoon chipotle chilli powder
  • 1 tablespoon fennel seeds
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt


  1. Preheat oven to 200 C.
  2. Drop the onion and garlic in the food processor and chop it all up.
  3. Add your raspberries, chipotle chilli powder, fennel seeds and sea salt and pulse again.
  4. Throw in the roughly chopped bacon and ground pork and mix well. (Or mix it by hand in a separate bowl if your food processor can’t handle it.)
  5. Form the meat into balls and place them on a baking tray. This made about 25 meatballs – but it depends on how large or small you make ’em.
  6. Bake for about 45 minutes.
  7. These are tasty warm – but even better cold!
