Recipe: Enchilada Meatballs

This recipe for Enchilada Meatballs… is a Mexican take on a meatball. Served over rice… sprinkled with cheese and chopped green onions and topped off with a dollop of sour cream.. this quick an deasy recipe is sure to please even the pickiest eater.
The meatballs are made in a similar way as you would make Italian meatballs… except the seasonings are Mexican flavors… the sauce is simply enchilada sauce.

From start to finish.. you can make these and have them on the table in 30 minutes… the meatballs are baked.. so while they’re baking … you can even clean-up.


Using lean ground beef and baking these, make these a pretty low-fat meal… believe me.. you won’t miss the frying oil.

You can use a homemade enchilada sauce or purchased one.. for my recipe for Enchilada Sauce... click the link... it's quick and easy and oh so good!

I chopped the onion and the garlic together in my mini chopper… this way the onion and garlic are well mixed and finely chopped.

I served this with shredded cheddar cheese… shredded Monterey Jack would also be good.

The seasonings are Taco seasonings… you can use a packet you purchase.. or use my recipe… it really is easy and you can control the heat and the salt.

I served these over white rice… any kind you prefer.

I hope you try these!
