Albondigas Taco Kit for 4-6

Based on Aaron’s grandmother’s albondigas recipe, these all-beef meatballs kick up the traditional recipe with a Mexican flair! A winner at New Orleans’ Top Taco competition, this has become the heart of the menu at Johnny Sanchez. This kit contains everything you need to make 20 albondigas tacos, topped with salsa roja, pico de gallo, and pickled jalapeño and onion! Just choose your favorite tortilla style.

Food Network star Aarón Sánchez opened Johnny Sanchez in New Orleans’ Central Business District in 2014, and it immediately racked up heaps of praise and has been packed since day one. Johnny Sánchez is a stylish hotspot for street-style tacos and other traditional Mexican fare made with locally-sourced ingredients, and it embodies both the warmth of traditional Mexican cooking and the hospitality that New Orleans is renowned for.
