Rose's StoryI found this recipe in the TOH's 2009 The Best Of Country Cooking Annual Recipes. It was sent into them by Diane Tennison of Lafayette, Louisiana.
She wrote in her description " For a less spicy version,substitute plain canned tomatoes for the Mexican blend " . But since I wanted just a bit of spice, I used one can of Ro-Tel and one can of fire roasted diced tomatoes with garlic.This recipe calls for making your own meatballs, but if you are in a hurry I'm sure thawed frozen ones would work as well.Submitted to " ZAAR " on February 24th., 2010.Re-posted to Just A Pinch 6/29/12
