Mexican beef meatballs

Ingredients (4 servings)

500g lean beef mince

2 x 125g cans red kidney beans, drained, rinsed

1 small red onion, chopped

2 tablespoons fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves

3/4 cup chunky mild tomato salsa

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 medium avocado, halved, peeled

2 tablespoons reduced-fat sour cream

Salad, to serve

Method

Process mince, beans, onion, parsley and 1/2 cup salsa until just combined. Roll level tablespoons of mixture into balls. Place on a plate. Preheat oven to 180°C/160°C fan-forced. Line a large baking tray with baking paper.

Heat oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat. Cook meatballs, in batches, turning, for 3 minutes or until browned. Transfer to prepared tray. Bake for 10 minutes or until meatballs are cooked through.

Using a fork, mash avocado in a bowl. Stir in sour cream. Serve with meatballs, salad and remaining salsa.
