Begin by spreading the meatballs out on a baking sheet. Bake them according to package directions, 350 degrees for 15 minutes.

While your meatballs are cooking spread out your chips on a pan or a platter. You don’t need to cook them but I used a pan to make assembly and transporting them easier. We used two different varieties of chips. I had plain tortilla scoops and fajita scoops which were my favorite. Place some lettuce inside the bottom of each scoop.

Then put your sour cream into a zip top bag and snip the corner so you can easily squeeze it into each of the little chip bowls.

Now top the sour cream with a Simek’s mini beef meatball. These meatballs are so tasty! I also left some plain in a bowl and the kids were just popping them into their mouth while I assembled the mini taco salads.
