- When meatballs, from below, are done, add sour cream to sauce and stir to combine. Remove from heat.
- Combine all ingredients in large bowl.(I use my hands :)
- Mix well.
- Form into rounded T sized balls and place on cooling rack over a cookie sheet, both of which have been sprayed with no stick spray(I also line my sheet with foil for easy clean up :)
- Bake at about 450 for about 17-20 minutes until done.
- Warm flat breads in cast iron or similar skillet until pliable and warmed through(I coated my pan with a lil corn meal to help give a Mexican flair)
- Layer warmed bread with shredded Monterey Jack, meatballs, sauce and fresh cilantro. Give a lil squeeze of lime juice.
