Enchilada Meatballs in the Crock Pot

One of my most popular recipes is Enchilada Chicken in the Crock Pot. I love enchilada sauce! It’s so spicy and yummy and filled with so much flavor. A whole can is only 90 calories so it is a healthy choice when cooking! But one day I was out of chicken breasts but I did have some lean ground beef and I realized why not make enchilada meatballs in the crock pot instead!

How to Video!

I loved that I got to be a guest on Nibbling with the Neighbors and share my recipe with them. Check out this video if you would like to watch how you make these Enchilada Meatballs in the crock pot!

We could eat Mexican five times a week it is one the favorites for the adults in our family. The boys do not like spicy things, so usually I will make them quesadillas. They are quick and easy. But TJ and I just love Mexican food and Mexican recipes.

These Enchilada Meatballs are a great low carb way of having all the flavors of enchiladas without the high carb tortillas!

When serving the meatballs make sure and spoon on some of the yummy enchilada sauce over them! And it only takes about a minute to let the cheese melt on the meatballs.
