Mexican Chicken Meatballs Recipe

Publisher Photo
These low-fat meatballs taste fabulous on their own, but if you want to take things up a notch, serve with a dip of hot Velveeta cheese and salsa. You could also substitute ground white turkey for the chicken. —Katrina Lopes, Lyman, South Carolina

MY REVIEW

I think I'll put these in a green chili enchilada sauce.

MY REVIEW

Absolutely delicious! I have made these meatballs with cornflakes and with gluten-free Rice Krispies. Delicious either way!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 3, 2013

Very good! I made both a batch as the recipe was written and also a batch gluten free and substituted gluten free rice krispies for the corn flakes & they turned out great. Both my kids who are picky enjoyed them.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 8, 2012

These meatballs were really great! My whole family enjoyed them, and I didn't have any trouble getting any of the kids to eat them. They had a nice Mexican flavor but weren't spicy at all. It made a batch of about 40 meatballs on one large cookie sheet for me, and I served 4 per person. I made some Uncle Ben's Taco-Flavored Rice with it and steamed green beans. I think these will make a great appetizer for a Mexican Fiesta themed birthday party we have coming up.
