I can’t believe that we’re already past the middle of March and tomorrow is the first day of spring. Can someone please slow down time?
If you’re like my hubby, your New Year’s diet resolution has already been thrown right out the window. Honestly, I can understand his position, like many of you this winter we’ve seen our share of snow and super cold weather here in Colorado. You might have heard of the crazy “Bomb Cyclone” recently.
After shoveling the driveway for hours in the freezing cold, it’s kinda hard to look forward to a nice healthy salad. What my hubby really craves is good, hearty comfort food to warm up his body as well as his soul.
That’s where this recipe was inspired; before heading out to begin excavating the snow from our driveway I asked him what he’d like for lunch. He replied that a meatball sub sounded really good. Once he was outside I started to search the pantry, refrigerator, and freezer for options.
In preparation of the snow storm I had just picked up some fresh bolillos the night before, we had chorizo in the refrigerator, and ground beef in the freezer. After running to the pantry and gathering the rest of the ingredients I was ready to get started.
Two hours later, my husband finally came back into the house; he’s was a little tired, really cold, and super hungry. There waiting from him in the kitchen were these delicious Mexican inspired meatballs wrapped in a warm bolillo smothered with a rich and spicy chipotle crema.
He didn’t waste any time scarfing down his meatball sandwich. Once I was finished in the kitchen, I found him contently asleep on the sofa in the family room in front of the TV where he had just started watching a college basketball game.
Speaking of that, it is now March Madness time, so if you’re hosting a crowd to cheer on your favorite team this recipe is perfect, because it makes a lot. Not only is it a spicy Mexican inspired twist on a traditional sandwich favorite, it’s easy to make and will leave all your guests satisfied through a marathon of basketball binge watching.
