Beef & Pork Meatball Skillet Dinner

Last Updated on March 26, 2024

Weeknight dinners should be two things: easy & delicious.

The only item in this recipe that requires chopping is the onion, which you can omit if you’re in a pinch or just not a fan of onions. You’ll only need one pan, and both the chipotle and crushed tomatoes are added straight from their cans. See, easy!

  • 12-16 ButcherBox Beef and Pork Meatballs thawed
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 small onion chopped
  • 1 can crushed roasted tomatoes (14 oz)
  • 1 can chipotle chiles in adobo sauce (7oz)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup shredded cheese cheddar, mozzarella, or a blend
  • chopped fresh parsley for garnish
  • Tortilla chips or warmed pita for serving


  • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).

  • In the same skillet, add another tablespoon of oil and cook onions for 3 minutes. Add crushed roasted tomatoes and chipotle chiles in adobo sauce. Stir well to combine and let it simmer for 5 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld together. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Return the seared meatballs to the skillet. Ensure they're coated evenly with the sauce.
  • Sprinkle the shredded cheese evenly over the meatballs.
  • Transfer the skillet to the preheated oven and bake for 15 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  • Garnish: Once out of the oven, garnish with chopped fresh parsley.
  • Serve the skillet dinner hot, straight from the skillet, with tortilla chips or warmed pita on the side.
