Meatball Monday: Green Chicken Enchilada Meatballs


I have been waiting all weekend for today! I know, that sounds crazy to actually want Monday to be here, but it’s true. The reason being: Meatball Monday has been on my brain ALL weekend long!


I started up Meatball Monday awhile ago, featuring some goodies such as;




My favorite is probably the Buffalo Chicken Meatballs – followed closely by the Fontina-Stuffed Veal Meatballs. However, they are all delicious and worth a try!

Meatball Monday has been on a long, long hiatus, but it’s making a comeback - and with a totally bitchin’ recipe. Oh yes my friends, it’s so good that it requires the use of the B word. haha

The recipe I am talking about is Green Chicken Enchilada Meatballs. It’s all the goodness of Green Chicken Enchiladas rolled into a delicious little ball. Love it! There is chicken, green chiles, onions, avocados, cheese and tortilla chips (instead of a tortilla) all combined to make these little bad boys.


Serve them with sour cream and the taste is complete!


I am in love with these meatballs and surely ate enough to prove it…
