How to Make It

Step 1

Thoroughly mix the beef, bread crumbs, milk, eggs, garlic powder, green onions and 2 tablespoons cheese in a large bowl. Shape the mixture firmly into 30 (1 1/2-inch) meatballs.

Step 2

Heat the oil in a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the meatballs and cook in batches until they're well browned on all sides. Pour off any fat.

Step 3

Stir the picante sauce in the skillet and heat to a boil. Reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook for 10 minutes or until the meatballs are cooked through. Stir in the remaining cheese and cook for 1 minute or until the cheese is melted. Sprinkle with additional chopped green onions, if desired. Serve the meatballs with toothpicks.

    Picante Party Meatballs

    I used these meatballs to accompany a spaghetti dish. I did not use salsa, just some Prego and water in the crockpot; I used chopped celery instead of green onions, Swiss cheese instead of cheddar, and I added minced garlic. Everyone at the party loved them!
