These Chicken Fajita Meatballs are perfect for appetizers or the main meal! A healthy, low fat, high protein recipe that the whole family will love!



  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup diced onion
  • 1 1/4 cup diced bell peppers
  • 1 tablespoon chopped garlic
  • 2 pounds ground chicken
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup salsa


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Add the oil to a skillet over medium heat. Add the onions and peppers to the skillet and cook for 7-8 minutes until softened. Add the garlic and cook and minute longer. Remove the skillet form the heat and let the vegetables cool.
  3. Add the ground chicken, salt, cumin, garlic powder, bread crumbs, egg, sour cream and salsa to a bowl. Mix together to combine the ingredients and then stir in the cooled peppers and onions.
  4. Use a #20, 2 ounce scooper (like the size of a golf ball) to portion out the meatballs. Spray your hands with cooking spray to help keep the mixture from sticking to your hands. Place the meatballs on a baking sheet that’s been sprayed with cooking spray and bake for 12-15 minutes.
  5. Serve the meatballs as appetizers with your dipping sauce of choice, or with rice on the side for dinner.
