    Judy-Jude's Note:

    This recipe is wonderful as an appetizer, served with crusty bread, or as a main dish, served in sub rolls and sprinkled with cheese, or you can add a (15 oz.) can of beans and serve as a meatball chili. It is one of my favorite recipes because it is so easy to prepare and so versatile. I often keep this hot in a crockpot to take to pot lucks and a get together with family and friends.

      First time I tried these I didn't have any taco seasoning on hand so instead I used a fajita seasoning and it was amazing! I make my own tomato sauce to serve with it and was a huge hit with the entire family. 2nd time making I used taco seasoning as the recipe states and the consensus was that they were both good but we preferred the fajita ones a little more. Thanks for a quick, easy and delicious recipe Judy. This meal has become a regular request for dinner at home.

      Both my husband and I really enjoyed these Mexican meatballs. It was a great change and a good way to use ingredients I always have around the house. I used Pamela's Bulk Taco Seasoning Mix for the taco seasoning. I served it with steamed rice a green salad, and fresh tortillas. Since there's just the two of us, I put the remaining meatballs in the freezer for another meal. This was made in memory of Judy-Jude.
