Jerk Chicken & Pork Meatball Recipe

I was excited by the idea of Caribbean Jerk Chicken & Pork Meatballs, but the actual result was even better than I imagined!

If you haven’t tried Caribbean Jerk Seasoning before, it’s a Jamaican hot spice mixture, generally rubbed on pork or chicken. In this meatball recipe I combined both pork and chicken with a Jamaican Jerk Seasoning Paste that I have absolutely fallen in love with!

You can grab a jar of the Jamaican Jerk Seasoning Paste on Amazon, (seriously, what did we do before Amazon Prime?!) or you can usually find a dry Jerk seasoning blend at most major grocery stores.

I tried this recipe twice, both with a dry Jerk seasoning blend I found at the grocery store, and the Jamaican Jerk Seasoning Paste. Both turned out great, but Kurt and I both preferred the flavor of the Jamaican Jerk Seasoning Paste.
