I have two kids that hate everything and one ate this up like a champ. My husband and I loved it and will make it again. I used one box of Jiffy corn muffin mix and Ortega enchilada sauce because that is what I had on hand.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix enchilada sauce and tomato sauce together. Set aside.
  2. Mix hamburger meat and cornbread crumbs together.
  3. Mix in one small ladle full of sauces in with meat mixture - just enough to moisten it - and mix.
  4. Make 1-inch meatballs and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
  5. Remove meatballs from oven and pour remaining sauce over the top of meatballs.
  6. Add cheese. Cook for 5 more minutes or until cheese is melted.
  7. Serve with toothpicks.
