Spicy Meatballs Wraps with Tzatziki


To celebrate the release of Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs 2 on DVD and Blu-Ray on 17th February, I've come up our own meatballs themed recipe which is great for a quick supper, fab for on the go dinners or a filling a weekend lunch.

What is Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs 2 about?

Inventor Flint Lockwood thought he saved the world when he destroyed his most infamous invention - a machine that turned water into food causing cheeseburger rain and spaghetti tornadoes. But Flint soon learns that his invention survived and is now combining food and animals to create – "foodimals!" Flint and his friends embark on an adventurously mouth-watering mission to battle hungry tacodiles, shrimpanzees, hippotatomuses, cheesepiders and other foodimals to save the world – again!
