Cheesy Enchilada Meatballs





This recipe is from On Our Weigh To Health. I had cornbread in the freezer. The recipe looked like something we would enjoy.

Ingredients:

2 Cups  Corn Bread ( or you can use muffins)*
1 - 10 oz can of enchilada sauce .. divided
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 lbs of ground beef
1 8 oz can tomato sauce
1/2 Cup of shredded Mexican Cheese

Directions:

In a large bowl add crumbled  corn bread with a 1/2 cup of enchilada sauce and salt.

Add the beef and mix well

Roll into 1 inch balls

Place the meat balls on a lightly greased a shallow pan.. bake at 350° for 25 -30 min.

In a small pan heat tomato sauce and the rest of the enchilada sauce

  Spread some sauce on the bottom of a 8 x 8 baking dish which I prepared with non stick spray, add the baked meatballs then top with additional sauce and cheese.

Placed the dish back in the 350 degree oven till the cheese melts.

I like sweet cornbread so my meatballs had a slightly sweet taste. To make life really easy you can buy bread or muffins if you don't want to bake.

The photo of this recipe is not one of my better shots. Darling Gabe was hungry and when there's a recipe with cheese he wants to dig in!

  3. Yes please....and thank you! Bob would love these-I would too. I have a super easy homemade enchilada sauce I bet would work in these-and I always seem to have a corn muffin mix in the cabinet that I bought for some other recipe. This would be a great one to use that in....make the muffins and crumble up....PERFECT!

    Thanks Linda-I'm looking forward to giving this one a try for sure-you know how much we love Mexican stuff.

    Oh and uh....it's usually ME asking Bob when he's taking photos of food...."Are you done yet? I'm really hungry.....haven't you taken enough pictures? Can we eat NOW?" :)

  7. This looks really good. If I have corn bread mix, but not the bread made, is there a way to use that?

    Thanks for sharing at the Tips & Tricks party. That's how I found you. Hope you'll join us again on Monday!

    1. I would make up the mix, I don't think just the corn bread mix would work but if you try it please let me know how it came out.

      I made mine up with a box mix, did a pan of muffins which was a great side.

      Lisa, really if you just use the mix I would love to know how it came out. Thanks

  9. I just made enchilada stack with tortillas on the bottom and top of the enchilada mixture and cheese in the middle. It was so much easier than rolling them, and I have nice squares to freeze for future meals. - Margy

    1. You know Laurie I almost didn't post this recipe to the blog because the photo is so bad but we really liked this. It's easy and hope your family enjoys it.

      I think the sweet cornbread is perfect for this recipe but I like sweet cornbread so naturally I made it- LOL

      I'll be back next month with another recipe.
