Mexican Meatball Sandwich

Submitted by: IMVEGAN

Introduction

I was at Trader Joe's and saw these meatless meatballs and thought. Meatball Sub! I made them with a Mexican flavor because I wanted to use salsa and and the Daiya Cheddar "Cheese" I had in my fridge.


This recipe looks high in sodium but I always rinse the beans which lowers the sodium content. To reduce the sodium significantly, buy salt free beans or soak your beans from dried.
