Mexican Meatballs

Today I wanted to use some chipotle pasta I found in the store and decided to make some Mexican meatballs to go with them.  I made up the recipe, but used my mom's basic proportions and way of cooking so I didn't screw them up too much.  They actually turned out quite delicious and were great just with the pasta side, but you could also put them into some tacos for a yummy treat as well!

1 4 oz. can green chiles

Preparation:
Preheat the oven to 400.
Mix all ingredients except the avocado together in a large bowl. Roll into palm-sized balls and place on greased baking sheet.  Bake for approximately 25 minutes.  Serve with a side of chipotle pasta or whatever you choose.
