Mexican Meatballs - Albondiguitas

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 15 mins

Have these either as a little meatball appetizer or in a tortilla similar to a souvlaki; either way is great.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Stem chiles, and chop finely to ensure best distribution throughout meat; remove seeds if desired.
  2. In a mixing bowl, mix chiles, meat, egg, bread crumbs, milk, cheese, onions, salt and pepper.
  3. Shape mixture into meatballs, by the teaspoonful, about 1-inch.
  4. Place them on an ungreased baking pan with a lipped side, and bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for 15-20 minutes or until cooked through.
  5. Serve with salsa (as a dip), or with tortillas, cheese, chopped fresh cilantro, and salsa if desired (in a taco-like fashion).

I just made these and added them to soup and made albondigas soup and wow! The only thing I changed was I didn't add the cheese and i only had 3 small jalapenos, I also added a tiny bit of cooked rice and these were really good! I baked them as the recipe said before I added them to my soup. Great meatball recipe, thanks!
