Fireball Meatballs – SPICY!!!!


Fireball meatballs are the hottest spiciest meatballs this side of the Mississippi!!! We love spicy food!!! These Fireball Meatballs are made with Scorpion peppers and they did not disappoint us! We had to make these fireball meatballs two days in a row. The second day we made some of the fireball meatballs without the Scorpion peppers. The flavor of the fireball meatballs are great spicy or mild.

Scoville Scale!!

The Scoville Scale is used to measure the spice or the rating of the heat level of Peppers its called the Scoville Heat Unit (SHU). Just to give an idea of how hot these peppers are the SHU for a Bell Pepper is a zero, Anaheim peppers are from 500 – 2,500, Jalapeno Peppers have an SHU of 2,000 to 50,000, Scotch Bonnet and Habanero are from 100,000 to 350,000.

Some Habanero’s can range all the way up to 577,000 on the Scoville Scale. A Ghost pepper and Scorpion (we used Scorpion Pepper to make these Fireball Meatballs) are from 850,000 to 2,000,000. The hottest pepper in the world is Carolina Reaper it ranges from 1,500,000 to 2,000,000+. This is just to provide an idea of the heat level for some of peppers.

Making these Fireball Meatballs

The recipe for the Fireball Meatballs are so easy to make and the best part they are very spicy but are also full of flavor. Often foods are made spicy but have no other flavor its just hot! With these meatballs you taste all the different spices and then the spice hits. It makes it a lot of fun to eat if you are a spicy food lover.

First thing buy Ground Turkey or grind a Turkey breast. We try to buy 99% Fat Free ground turkey. Mix together the spices and chop the Scorpion pepper in a food processor or use gloves if you chop them on a cutting board.

Mixing the Fireball Meatballs

Second step is to mix together the ground turkey, spices and scorpion pepper. Make sure to wear gloves when mixing these fireball meatballs together. The oil from the peppers will get on your hands and it doesn’t wash off easily. Trust me you are going to touch your eyes i you have handled chopped peppers. . . I have proven this theory many times!!!

Third Mix together and form the meatballs into a bite sized meatball or make them as large or as small as you want. Just adjust the cooking time depending on the size of the fireball meatballs.

Finally, place the fireball meatballs on a baking sheet. Bake in a 400 degree oven for 20 to 25 minutes.

Serve the fireball meatballs with your favorite dipping sauce. We like Ranch Dressing with some blue cheese mixed in to the Ranch dressing.
