Meatball Skillet {Southwest Style}

This Meatball Skillet is easy to make and very filling...just avoid eating the whole pan of meatballs when you make this!  :-)

Adapted from Clean Eating Magazine's Southwest Meatball Skillet

1lb lean ground turkey or chicken breasts
2 large egg whites
1/4 cup oats
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
2 tsp Olive Oil
1 cup organic frozen corn
1 can organic black beans, drained and rinsed
2 cups diced tomatoes
1/2 cup organic chicken broth
1 Tbsp fresh lime juice
1 tsp ground cumin
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped

1. Combine meat, egg, oats, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Form into meatballs (makes approximately 16 meatballs).
2. Heat Olive Oil on medium-high heat. Add meatballs and cook for 3-5 minutes, turning frequently until browned.
3. Add remaining ingredients (except cilantro) and mix well.
4. Reduce heat to medium and partially cover, cook for an additional 3-5 minutes until meatballs are cooked through. Add cilantro. 

Makes 16 meatballs.  Serving size is 4 meatballs and 1 cup of the mixture.
