Taco Meatball Kabobs

Two favorites rolled into one ~ Tacos and Meatballs.  Perfect party food for this Cinco De Mayo or fun dinner idea for the kids.

1 pound ground beef
1 package taco seasoning mix
3/4 cup crushed tortilla chips
1 egg
3/4 cup water
8 ounces Pepper jack cheese, cut into 32 cubes
32 grape tomatoes
32 olives
shredded lettuce

Combine ground beef, tortilla chips, water, taco seasoning and egg in a bowl; mix well.  Shape into 32 meatballs about 1-1/2 inches each.  Place on a baking sheet and bake at 375 for 20 minutes or until meatballs are cooked.  Using 4 inches wooden skewers, skewer 1 each meatball, cheese cube, tomato and olive.  Serve with lettuce and salsa.

If desired, mix equal parts salsa and sour cream for a creamy dipping sauce.
