How to Make Mexican Sausage Balls

These sausage balls are super simple to make. My secret is to mix all the ingredients in your stand mixer. Put the sausage, cream cheese, cheddar cheese, taco seasoning, green chiles, and Bisquick in the bowl of a KitchenAid mixer fitted with the dough hook attachment and let the mixer do all the work. It will take a few minutes for everything to get incorporated. Make sure to scrape down the bowl if necessary.

Once the mixture is ready, roll into approximately 50 to 60 balls and bake. Be sure not to overbake the sausage balls. Cook them just until they start to brown. Overbaking the sausage balls will make them dry.

  • I used Jimmy Dean Hot Sausage.
  • You can substitute turkey sausage for the pork sausage.
  • Need a gluten-free snack? Use gluten-free Bisquick.
  • You can use any shredded cheese that you enjoy. Pepper Jack or a Mexican cheese blend work great.
  • Want spicier sausage balls? Add some diced jalepeños.

  • If you don’t have a heavy-duty stand mixer, you can mix the sausage mixture by hand.
  • Can sausage balls be made in advance? Yes! You can form the sausage mixture into balls and refrigerate them overnight.
  • Can sausage balls be frozen? Yes! You can form the sausage mixture into balls and freeze them unbaked. Just pop them in the oven frozen and add a couple of minutes to the baking time. I always have a batch of sausage balls in the freezer for a quick snack.

What to Serve with Sausage Balls

These sausage balls taste great hot out of the oven or at room temperature. I like to serve them with a side of salsa, jalapeno ranch, or some queso. Sometimes I mix together some salsa and ranch dressing for a quick salsa ranch dipping sauce. YUM!
