Enchilada Meatballs
Submitted By: SHELLEY925
These are a tasty change from the usual since they use cornbread crumbs instead of crackers or regular bread. They're always a hit at parties! A friend shared this recipe with me ages ago and I've tweaked it to come up with this.

  • Yields: 6 servings
INGREDIENTS
  • 2 cups crumbled cornbread
  • 1 (10 ounce) can enchilada sauce, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 pounds ground beef chuck
  • 1 (10 ounce) can tomato sauce
  • 1 cup shredded Mexican cheese blend, divided
DIRECTIONS
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl, combine the cornbread, half of the enchilada sauce, half of the cheese, and the salt. Crumble the beef into the mixture, and blend well using your hands. Shape meat into 1 inch balls, and place on a 10x15 inch jellyroll pan, or any cookie sheet with sides to catch the grease.
  3. Bake for 18 to 22 minutes in the preheated oven, until the meat is cooked through.
  4. While the meatballs are cooking, warm the tomato sauce and remaining enchilada sauce in a saucepan. Remove the meatballs from the pan using a slotted spoon, and place in a serving dish. Pour the heated sauce over them, and sprinkle the rest of the cheese on top. Provide toothpicks for serving.
