Cooking Instructions

Mould the beef mixture into bite-sized balls.

To make the spicy paprika-tomato sauce:
Place a pan over a medium to high heat and add the olive oil. When hot, fry the tomato, red onion and garlic for 5 minutes, or until softened and fragrant. Add the remaining sauce ingredients to the pan and simmer for 10 minutes before adding the frikkadels.

Simmer for a further 15 to 20 minutes. Serve the spicy meatballs straight from the pan, alongside bowls of guacamole.

Cook’s note: Serve with a pile of tortilla wraps to mop up the juices.
