  • Mix ground beef, onion, Cheddar cheese, tortilla chips, salsa, egg, and taco seasoning together in a bowl.

  • Form 1-inch balls from the mixture and place into the prepared dish so they aren't touching.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until browned and no longer pink in the centers, about 30 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes and serve.

Cook's Notes:

For a spicy kick add chopped jalapenos. Substitute Kraft(R) Mexican blend cheese for Cheddar cheese for even more taco flavor.

Wrap 3 to 4 balls in a flour tortilla and top with your favorite condiments for a no-mess burrito.
