Loaded Nacho Meatballs

An easy option for most non-low carb diets is to grab nachos, however with the tortilla chips out of the equation a replacement needed to be found. With a meatball instead of a chip, you save on the net carbs and also increase your protein intake without compromising any of the flavors.

  • Servings: 16
  • Total Time: 15 min.

Ingredients Meatballs:

  • ground beef (80/20)
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup almond flour
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp ground black pepper
  • ½ cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 3 Tbsp prepared salsa (sugar-free)
  • 1 Tbsp pickled jalapenos, chopped

Ingredients Toppings:

  • ¼ cup prepared salsa (sugar-free)
  • ¼ cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 16 pickled jalapeno slices
  • 2 Tbsp sour cream

 

Directions

Combine in a medium bowl all of the ingredients for the meatballs. Thoroughly mix all of these together and hand press into 16 meatballs. Sauté until golden brown and cooked throughout, approximately 3-4 minutes each side.

 

Place all of the meatballs in an oven safe dish. Top them each with 1tsp salsa and 1tsp of the shredded cheddar. Place this in the oven on broil for about 1 minute so that the cheese can melt. Cautiously remove and top each with a dab of sour cream and a slice of jalapeno.
