Adding Sriracha, as well as other hot sauces, into your current eating habits is a great way to give your body a little jump start and it doesn’t go without health benefits as well.  Hot sauces; which are made from chilies, are said to:

  • Increase metabolism; which helps speed weight loss
  • Has been know to reduce heart attacks and strokes in cultures that eat a lot of spicy food
  • Can help lower blood pressure by increasing the blood flow

When making this recipe, I used 99% fat free ground turkey, Sriracha hot sauce, fresh lime juice, parsley, and garlic. For the sauce, I used mayonnaise (you can use light, but I don’t substitute when it comes to my mayo…Hellmann’s Real all the way!), nonfat Greek yogurt, lime juice and Sriracha. I really loved the way the fresh, light flavor of the lime juice complimented the hot, tangy hot sauce.

When using Sriracha, start off with a smaller amount then adjust amounts accordingly; especially if children will be eating these as well. I found the measurements I used to be perfect without being too overpowering. Each meatball is only 25 calories and 1 tablespoon of the dipping sauce is only 54 calories, so you can decide how many you want eat come game day. ~Enjoy!
