Keto/low carb Enchilada Meatball

Posted by

Meatball bakes are one of the first things I made when I started keto. I added a twist to the meatballs by adding in taco seasoning and cheddar cheese. Once the meatballs were cooked, I added them to a casserole dish and covered them with enchilada sauce and shredded Mexican blend cheese. This recipe is definitely going on my regular dinner rotation for sure!
