  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 small onion, minced
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
  • 2 tablespoons cumin
  • 2 tablespoons dried oregano
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil


  • In a small sauté pan over medium heat, heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil and sauté the onion for 10 to 15 minutes, or until soft.
  • Mix together the meat, the sautéed onion, the breadcrumbs, cumin, oregano, and a pinch of salt and pepper. With wet hands, form the meat into small balls.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon olive in a sauté pan over medium heat and cook the meatballs until browned on all sides and cooked through. Serve with tortillas (and make meatball soft tacos!).
