Lamb Meatballs with Chickpeas and Red Pepper Sauce

  • 2 pounds ground lamb (or 1 pound lamb + 1 pound ground beef; or 2 pounds ground beef)
  • 1/2 cup roasted red peppers from a jar (4 ounces), preferably Organic Piquillo Peppers
  • 2 cups low-sodium vegetable or chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup whole-milk yogurt, preferably Greek, plus more for serving
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 Tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/4 cup minced flat-leaf parsley, plus more for garnish
  • 1 Tablespoon thyme leaves
  • 2 teaspoons La Chinata Smoked Paprika
  • 4 teaspoons kosher salt, plus more for seasoning
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 3/4 cups chickpeas from a jar or can, drained

In a mini food processor, puree the piquillo peppers. Transfer the puree to a bowl and whisk in the broth and 1/2 cup yogurt.

In a large bowl, combine the meat, eggs, garlic, breadcrumbs, 1/4 cup parsley, the thyme, and the smoked paprika. Add the 4 teaspoons of kosher salt. Using your hands, gently mix, then roll into sixteen 2-inch meatballs.

In a very large skillet, heat the oil until it is shimmering. Add the meatballs and cook over moderately high heat until the meatballs are browned all over, about 8 minutes. Slide the meatballs to one side of the skillet. Add the piquillo pepper sauce and the chickpeas and bring just to a boil. Simmer the meatballs over moderately low heat, stirring and turning them occasionally in the sauce, until the sauce reduces slightly, about 10 minutes. Season with salt.

Transfer the meatballs and chickpeas to a platter, spoon the piquillo pepper sauce on top, garnish with parsley, and serve with yogurt.

Velvety, smoky flavor at best price 01/17/2013
By lapatri
La Chinata pimenton (Spanish smoked paprika) is a superb brand--the tops, in my opinion--and I was so glad when I found that Gourmet Delights carried it. I used to buy it in Spain or from another Spanish food source website, till I discovered Gourmet Delights on Facebook: the price is the lowest, they offer free shipping, and they offer return-customer discounts. So no need to lug tins of this back from Spain in your suitcase when it can come to your door with free shipping!

La Chinita Smoked Paprika 09/30/2014
By Steve McAnlis
The La Chinata sweet Smoked Paprika is a versatile spice that can transform numerous dishes from ordinary to extraordinary. Chicken, pork, scrambled eggs, rice dishes, etc, etc. I work for a wine distributor that has a great portfolio of Spanish wines and have enjoyed delving into the cusine from the various regions. We really get our money's worth with the La Chinta and it helps boost my culinary efforts. Steve McAnlis

I just used your ultra flavorful Smoked Paprika in a Chopped Dressing last night. Because my dressings are the main delivery system for over all savory deliciousness in my Chopped recipes I need a stand out product. Your La Chinata is the perfect addition to my spice gallery. I've never been disappointed in any of your products...Bravo!
