  • Add 1 1/4 cups (2 1/2 cups) water, 1 tbsp (2 tbsp) butter and 1/8 tsp (1/4 tsp) salt to a medium pot. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat.
  • Once boiling, add rice, then reduce heat to low. Cover and cook until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed, 12-14 min.
  • Remove from heat. Set aside, still covered.
  • Zest, then juice half the lime. Cut remaining into wedges.
  • Halve tomatoes
  • Peel, pit, then cut avocado into 1/4-inch pieces.
  • Roughly chop cilantro.
  • Peel, then cut onion into 1/4-inch pieces.
  • Add one third of the onions, 2 tsp (4 tsp) lemon juice, and 1/4 tsp sugar to a medium bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Stir to combine.
  • Combine breadcrumbs, half the beef broth concentrate and 2 tbsp (4 tbsp) milk in a large bowl.
  • Add bison, half the Enchilada Spice Blend, then combine.
  • Roll into 10 (20) equal sized meatballs.
  • Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat.
  • When hot, add 1 tbsp (2 tbsp) oil then meatballs. Cook meatballs, turning occasionally until golden brown, 4-5 min. (NOTE: It’s okay if meatballs don't cook all the way through at this step.)
  • Transfer meatballs to a plate.
  • Reheat the same pan over medium (add fatt???)
  • Add remaining onions and half the tomatoes. Cook, stirring occasionally until tender, 3-4 min.
  • Add meatballs, Tex Mex paste, remaining Enchilada Spice Blend, remaining broth concentrate,1/4 tsp (1/2 tsp) sugar and 1/2 cup (1 cup) water.
  • Bring to a simmer, then cover and cook, stirring occasionally until meatballs are cooked through and sauce has thickened slightly, 3-4 min.
  • When meatballs are cooked, remove pan from heat. Sprinkle over cheese. Cover and let stand until cheese melts, 2-3 min.
  • Meanwhile, add avocado, remaining tomatoes, half the cilantro and 1/2 tbsp (1 tbsp) oil to bowl with onions. Season with salt and pepper. Stir to mix.
  • Fluff rice with fork, then stir in remaining cilantro.
  • Divide rice, meatballs and salsa between plates / bowls. Spoon any sauce from pan over rice/ meatballs.
