Meatball bakes are one of the first things I made when I started keto. I had it on the dinner menu one night a couple of weeks ago and decided to create a mexican version of that dish.
I added a twist to the meatballs by adding in taco seasoning and cheddar cheese. Yum! 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!
