What makes a taco meatballs recipe. Well, come see these ingredients that are packed with flavor!
Meatballs with Taco Seasoning
When you use a great packaged taco seasoning mixture, you save time and energy making meatballs. No taking out four or five different spices to come together for the flavors you want.
Meatballs with Gravy
Now these meatballs have a gravy that’s rich and thick thanks to some simmering for a while and for the thickening with the addition of beans.
Simple Meatballs Recipe
And, speaking of the beans, the type you choose is up to you. I love white beans, cannellini, navy or great northern, for this recipe.
But if you want to use black beans, garbanzo, pinto or some other type of canned beans, it’s totally up to you.
For me, ultimate meatballs are those that get better on days two and three. So you might want to prepare these say 24 hours in advance. Let them congeal and come together in the refrigerator then warm up very slow and low on the stovetop, not microwave. And, you might need to add some liquid to thin the gravy because I’m tellin’ you, it gets thicker.
How to Cook Meatballs in Sauce
Cooking those meatballs in sauce saves some time and mess by not browning the meatballs. Talk about no splatter and splash. It’s just the tender juicy meatballs that cook in the sauce. All those flavors simmer together.
Meatballs and Gravy Recipe
This meatballs and gravy recipe has another component that adds immense flavor, I think. And, that’s the addition of olives. Yes, you can omit, but if you do, think about adding something else that will offset flavors. Maybe pepperoncini rings!
Taco Meatballs with Doritos
I used kind of stale crackers, a combination of them, crushed them, actually hammered them to death with an olive oil bottle! But if you have almost stale doritos or tortilla chips, those, too, could serve as your binding agent to bring together the meatballs.
