We all love a good meatball. What we also love are delicious enchiladas. So why not combine the two to make enchilada meatballs? These delicious morsels are perfect for a weeknight meal when nobody can decide between Mexican and Italian.
While meatballs are universally considered Italian, did you know that they actually originated all around the world at different points in history? It seems that just about every culture has decided that ground meat shaped into balls and cooked were a delicious food, and we couldn’t agree any more!
While enchiladas aren’t as well known as meatballs, they deserve the same level of fame and love. The difference is that enchiladas are distinguished by their flavors instead of their overall structure. Enchiladas feature delicious spices such as cumin, oregano, cilantro, and chili powder – all of which can only be found in certain areas of the world, especially in Mexico and South America.
Despite this, their flavor profiles and spices are slowly reaching the far corners of the world and will soon be loved by all. So if you have a friend reluctant to try new foods, why not ask them to try the flavors of an enchilada in a familiar meatball?
