Meatball bakes are one of the first things I made when I started keto. I have a recipe here on the blog for a classic meatball bake made with marinara sauce and mozzarella cheese. You can find that recipe here. I had it on the dinner menu one night a couple of weeks ago and decided to create a Mexican version of that dish.
I added a twist to the meatballs by adding in taco seasoning and cheddar cheese. Once the meatballs were cooked, I added them to a casserole dish and covered them with enchilada sauce and shredded Mexican blend cheese. This recipe is definitely going on my regular dinner rotation for sure!
