Mexican inspired meatballs

I had to use up some ground turkey so I made meatballs! I also added a pound of ground pork because turkey tends to be a little dry....and I like pork. There I said it. The sauce is a tomatillo sauce, and I served with rice and kidney beans since I didn't have any black beans, and I warmed up the corn tortillas in a skillet so they wouldn't tear easily.
I also finally broke down and paid the seven dollars for cotija cheese at Safeway. I've been resisting buying something so expensive, particularly since it costs about TWO DOLLARS in Chicago. It did however add that tangy Parmesan-like taste to the finished product--a perfect counterbalance for the smooth flavors of avocado and tomatillo.
