Jorge Castillo: When you think of meatballs, you probably are thinking about something Italian...
Glenn Lindgren: ... don't forget Swedish meatballs...
Raúl Musibay: ... or those little meatballs in the barbeque sauce some people serve at parties.
Glenn Lindgren: ... those are usually made out of rubber, aren't they?
Jorge Castillo: However, Cubans have their own version of the meatball. This is a great recipe for this Cuban treat.
Raúl Musibay: The key here is that Cuban meatballs are big!
Glenn Lindgren: That's one SPICY meatball!
Jorge Castillo: Wrong commercial, Glenn!
Giant Cuban meatballs that put many Italian meatballs to shame!
