Mexican Meatballs


  • 2 lb. lean ground meat*
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 1 small can chopped green chiles, drained
  • 1 package taco seasoning
  • Ad
  • 1 can enchilada sauce
  • 1 can tomato sauce
  • 1 cup grated cheddar and/or monterey jack cheese

*burger, chicken, turkey, venison, pork or a mixture of any of these. I use ground pork and ground venison


In one bowl mix ground meat, onion, green chiles and taco seasoning. Mix enchilada sauce and tomato sauce in another bowl. Form meat mixture into meatballs about the size of walnuts.

There are 2 ways you can cook this.

You can fry these in a small amount of oil on the stove, drain on paper towels, rinse out skillet. Return meatballs to skillet with enchilada & tomato sauce mix & simmer for 30-45 minutes. Then top with cheese.

The other way you can cook these is to place meatballs in your crock pot and pour the enchilada and tomato sauce mixture over the meatballs. Cook for 4-5 hours on high. Top with the cheese in the last 30 minutes of cooking. This is wonderful! Enjoy!
