I got this recipe from www.honeysucklewhite.com and adapted it to make it IBS safe. It is GOOD! I'm still experimenting with the dipping sauce I like the best. Definitely something along the sour cream line tastes the best so far. My only concern is the spices--if they are ok for IBS? These are great for holiday party hors d'oeuvres.
1 pound ground white turkey 3 tablespoons egg whites garlic powder to taste 1/4 cup finely chopped onions 1/4 cup finely chopped dry bread crumbs 1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes 2 tsp. chili powder 1 tsp. cumin Mix all together. Shape into 36 balls about 3/4". (I used my small cookie scoop and it was exactly 36 balls). Roll each ball in finely crushed baked tortilla chips, coating thoroughly. Lightly spray 10X15" pan with cooking spray. Arrange meatballs on pan. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes or until meat is no longer pink in center.
The dip that came with the recipe was 3/4 cup non-fat sour cream and 1/2 cup salsa. And, that is a really good dip. I used soy sour cream and am not a big fan of it, but even it was good with it. You could probably come up with a favorite dip of your own for it, too.
