All of your favorite Mexican spices are wrapped up in these tender juicy bite-size meatballs. This might be the easiest meatball recipe ever and it happened almost by accident a few weeks ago. I made a huge tray of Black Bean and Beef Taco Nachos for lunch and I still had some ground beef that needed to be used. The Mexican spice mix was sitting on the counter and one thing led to another.
I made the first batch of these meatballs using ground beef alone. However, I’m partial to a 2/3 mix of beef and pork in my meatballs. So, the next time I made them, I used the measurements below. If you aren’t a fan of pork or if you (like me) have a bunch of ground beef that needs to be used, they are delicious both ways.
My whole family gave these meatballs two thumbs up. I served the meatballs with Spanish Rice and Roasted Green Beans the first time I made them. The next time, I served them with tortilla chips and Queso Blanco Dip.
If you happen to follow me on Instagram, you had a sneak peek of my 8 year old making these meatballs all by himself! I can’t believe I never thought to have the kids roll the scooped meat into meatballs before this time. Huge help for me and it was fun for him!
