How to Make Now That's A Spicy Meatball


  1. Blend the first 4 ingredients in a blender until smooth. Then pour into large saucepan & bring to a boil.
  2. In the mean time mix the next 5 ingredients in a large bowl. Then shape into 24 balls, about 1/4 cup each. Then drop each meatball gently into the boiling tomato sauce & cover.
  3. Simmer on medium-high heat 20 to 25 mins or until meatballs are done. Then serve with rice.
  4. Special Tip: For a shortcut use a small ice cream scoop to make shaping the balls easy. It also helps keep things clean cause you dont have to handle the meat.
