October 16th was World Food Day! We’re celebrating by sharing one of our favorite recipes that we offer on our Latino-inspired menu – Albondigas! Albondigas are a traditional Mexican-style meatball rolled up with spices and either baked, steamed, or fried. To keep it healthy, we like to bake the albondigas in our kitchen. Serve albondigas with a side of fresh salsa verde or add to a soup with cooked carrots, potatoes, and a handful of rice.
