Ingredients

Instructions

Place the oven rack 4-5 inches from the broiler, then preheat the broiler to high.  Spray 2 large baking sheets with nonstick cooking spray.

In a large bowl, combine the ground beef, sausage, breadcrumbs, cheese, milk, eggs, taco seasoning and 1/4 teaspoon salt.  Mix together until completely combined, but don’t over-mix.

Either by hand, or using a small scoop, form the mixture into balls, using about 2 tablespoons of the mixture for each meatball. You should end up with 40-45 meatballs.  Place on the prepared baking sheet.

Bake the meatballs under the broiler until browned, flipping halfway through, about 8 minutes total. Transfer to a large slow cooker.

In a bowl, combine the diced tomatoes, enchilada sauce, chili powder, salt and pepper.  Pour over the meatballs.

Cook on low until the meatballs are cooked through, about 4 hours. 

If desired, serve over rice, topped with avocados and cilantro.
