Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 kg mincemeat (I use lamb but beef is ok too)
  • 12 cup breadcrumbs
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 (1 ounce) packets taco seasoning mix (i use mild for my family)
  • 1 (475 g) jar spaghetti sauce (extra garlic sauce is yum)
  • 500 g pasta
  • salt
  • pepper


  1. depending on how much seasoning you like i have mentioned 2 packets because we its quite a big recipe. 1 packet for the meatballs and 1 for the sauce. if u dont want to use so much then leave the taco seasoning out of the sauce.
  2. put mince, egg, breadcrumbs, and 1 packet of taco seasoning into a bowl and combine well (that means getting ur fingers eewwy lol ).
  3. roll them into balls and cook them all (you will need to do a few batches.
  4. add spagetti sauce and and second packet of taco mix.
  5. cook spagetti to your liking and then add the meatballs.
