Low Carb Taco Meatball Recipe

These low carb meatballs are a favorite at our game day parties and potlucks. I also like to make them for lunch and dinner. My family loves these. It’s a new play on Taco Tuesday.

Loaded with all the flavors of the Southwest, these keto taco meatballs are spicy and cheesy. Each meatball is filled with cheddar cheese, taco flavoring, cilantro and garlic. Dip them in a creamy salsa sauce for an even tastier bite.

Air Fryer Taco Meatballs

If you don’t want to cook your taco meatballs in the oven or stove top, I highly recommend frying them in the air fryer. I love our air fryer. We use a Philip’s. I can fit about 9 meatballs in this air fryer, so I have to work in batches. It cooks meatball perfectly – browned on the outside and juicy on the inside.

Clean is easy too if you are using an air fryer. The baskets are trays are dishwasher safe.

Keto Taco Seasoning

I usually make my own keto taco seasoning mix. It’s easy to make in bulk and it contains clean ingredients without any fillers or sugars. Try my recipe for keto taco seasoning if you are interested in making your own.

You can also use store bought taco seasoning mix. Just make sure to check the label. Look out for any sugars the manufacturer might sneak in.

I love to serve these taco meatballs as an appetizer. I’ll also make up an easy keto dip to go along with them. The dip is a creamy salsa dip with sour cream, low carb salsa, and taco sauce.

Drizzle the salsa dip on your meatballs or dip the balls right in!

Keto Meal Prep Tips

Meatballs are one of the best keto recipes to meal prep. They don’t take a lot of time to prep up and you can freeze them for later use. They even can be stored, uncooked, in ball form in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

If you are having a party or just making these for dinner, you can save on time if you prep these keto meatballs the day before.

Since I have calculated the macros based on one meatball, it’s easy to calculate your macros for the day and figure out how many meatballs you should have for your meal.

Even the creamy salsa sauce can be prepped ahead of time.
