Total TimePrep: 25 min. + standing Bake: 15 min.

This is a great orange meatball. My family loves orange meatballs of any kind. This was a great take with the added chorizo.
Wonderful combination of flavors and textures! I didn't have nor could I find cornbread croutons so I got a large cornbread muffin and crumbled it into very fine crumbs. I also left out the salt and thought if the resulting taste was that it needed salt it could be added to taste. This was my first experience with a pomegranate, too, and ended up wearing a good bit of juices. The chicken/chorizo is a brilliant combination as the flavors compliment each other very well. I served the meatballs with the sauce over pearled rice. By all means, do cook the meatballs on a rack so that the excess fat and juices can run off. The sauce was very simple to prepare and very tasty and the added pomegranate seeds and chopped cilantro provided a perfect finishing touch. I will make this recipe again.
