Mexican Meatballs
70 mins (prep 25, cooking 45)
18 ingredients

I started making these meatballs years ago and brought them to every event imaginable. I never brought home leftovers and have been asked for the recipe so many times, I started bringing copies with me. Depending on the crowd you are going to feed, you can make these mild or spicy. Easy to make and they freeze well for pre-planning.
