Reviews for Mexican Chicken Meatballs
"My whole family loved these Meatballs"
"I think I'll put these in a green chili enchilada sauce."
"Absolutely delicious! I have made these meatballs with cornflakes and with gluten-free Rice Krispies. Delicious either way!"
"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."
"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."
