One of my favorite recipe blogs is  Skinny Taste! I find that I love nearly all of her recipes, and she provides photos, ingredients, instructions, and usually a bit of a story, or background on the item.

Lightly spray baking pan with oil. Preheat oven to 400°.

Place jalapeño, garlic, cilantro, and scallions into a small food processor or chopper and pulse a few times until finely minced.

In a large bowl combine turkey, chopped herbs, bread crumbs, egg, cumin, salt and pepper. Using your hands, mix well and measure 1/4 cup meat, then divide in two so you end up with each meatball 1/8 cup in size. Roll and place on a baking pan.
Bake meatballs at 400° 15 minutes.
