Cilantro pesto meatballs are where it's at! Juicy meatballs spiked with cilantro pesto simmer away in a pan of enchilada sauce.
Enchilada sauce, to me, is the real star of a big, steamy, drippy pan of enchiladas. Without it, you'd just have a bunch of dry burritos squished into a pan. And a lot of chafing.
But a pan of enchiladas is a big, giant carb commitment that you might not be willing to make on a regular day. And let's face it, they're a lot of work as well. Because I would pretty much eat anything covered in enchilada sauce, and I like short cuts, I figured meatballs would work.
They really do. Especially since these particular meatballs are stuffed with cilantro pesto. (Hence, the greenish hue. You weren't scared, were you? I promise I have good beef.)
Depending on how strict you are about your paleo meals, you could sprinkle a little cheese on them. Or serve them with Cilantro-Lime Quinoa (like I did). Spaghetti squash would work, too.
