How to Make It

Step 1

Thoroughly mix 1/2 cup picante sauce, beef, tortilla chips, egg and garlic powder in a large bowl. Shape the mixture firmly into 24 (1-inch) meatballs.

Step 2

Heat the oil in a 6-quart saucepot over medium-high heat. Add the meatballs and cook until they're well browned. Remove the meatballs from the saucepot. Pour off any fat.

Step 3

Stir the remaining picante sauce, chili powder, tomatoes and beans in the saucepot and heat to a boil. Return the meatballs to the saucepot. Reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook for 10 minutes or until the meatballs are cooked through. Top with chopped fresh cilantro and additional crushed tortilla chips, if desired.

    YUM!! I made this for a pot luck dinner party and everyone loved it. This was one of the first dishes to disappear.
