When you think of an appetizer, or at least when I think of them, one of the first recipes that pops into my head is meatballs. I love making a juicy, flavorful, and delicious meatball recipe like these Taco Meatballs.
It can be difficult to keep meatballs from drying out in the cooking process. It’s important they’re cooked all the way through.
But the beauty of meatballs is that you can make so many different ones, that it keeps things interesting–plus course, it’s easy to make keto meatballs.
Follow my instructions as closely as possible so you can end up with the juiciest meatballs ever.
Taco Meatballs | Air Fryer Keto Taco Meatballs
There are two aspects about these Taco meatballs that make them even better.
One, they’re keto-friendly which means you can have them on your diet and not feel guilty.
Two, they’re made in the Air Fryer. The Air Fryer uses little oil to cook your foods. So, you get that delicious fried flavoring and texture without them being overly greasy.
I love how versatile meatballs can be. They can go on top of pasta, be eaten by themselves for dinner, be served as an appetizer, or even be eaten as a snack.
Of course, if you’re doing keto, I would skip the pasta as it will drop you out of ketosis. No worries though, these meatballs are great for many other options and won’t disappoint.
