  • 1/2 kilo ground round
  • a bunch of lettuce leaves
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 pack taco seasoning mix
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 egg beaten
  • a few black olives sliced
  • taco shells (used the mini ones here)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp onion powder
  • 1/2 cup water

Step 1

Dissolve the taco seasoning mix in some water. Set aside.


Step 2

Season you beef with some salt and pepper, garlic and onion powder. Mix well. Start forming them into balls. Dip in beaten egg. Then roll into the breadcrumbs combined with some cornstarch.


Step 3

In a pan put just about a tablespoon of oil and start browning the meatballs. Flip them around to get an even coloration.


Step 4

When their browned outside pour in the taco seasoning mix and let it simmer until the meatballs are done and the liquid absorbed well by the meat.


Step 5

At this point I turn off the heat and added in my cheese. I used chedarella in this recipe. A combination of cheddar and mozzarella so the cheese melts real well and coats the meatballs. Then I start arranging my mini tacos by putting a little bit of lettuce in the small taco shell. top up with the gooey meatball. Layer them on top of the salsa I made and put a dollop of sour cream on top. Finishing it off with a sliced black olive on top. I have made my meatballs a little bit bigger for my shells in this recipe but it came out real good still. You can use the regular sized tacos too but put 2 meatballs in there so you got a set of eyeballs. The mini tacos I like since their more of like bite size pieces. Easy to handle and eat!


Step 6

My salsa only has this ingredients: Chopped tomatoes Chopped onions Minced garlic Dry basil leaves (wasn't able to find cilantro so I just used basil)


Step 7

Just mix everything and season with some salt and pepper. Put in the ref until ready to use. You could also add in some chopped chili for extra kick!
