Tiny Taco Meatballs

I had some ground turkey in my freezer and was trying to decide between tacos and meatballs when it came to me-how about taco flavored meatballs? Well a quick google search showed that I wasn't the only one who had this idea. I found this recipe and we were not disappointed. The only change I made was I used ground turkey rather than ground beef. They would probably be good half beef and half turkey as well-it was just what I had in the freezer. I served them over brown rice and some of my more adventurous family members enjoyed them with a little taco sauce poured on top.

2 eggs
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1 envelope taco seasoning
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 pounds ground turkey
Taco sauce, optional

Combine the first five ingredients. Add the turkey and mix well. Shape into 1 inch balls. Place meatballs on a greased rack in a shallow baking pan. Bake at 400° for 14-18 minutes. Serve with taco sauce if desired.

where do you get taco seasoning?

Lisa's basement. Just kidding-I just felt that was a good answer! Truthfully I have some I stockpiled from last time I was there. That said I have bought it here at Shum Pelpel or even Mega I think. If you google it, you can find a "recipe" to throw some seasonings together to make taco seasoning. Want me to throw a package into Jordy's folder for tomorrow?
