Meatball Chili

20140317-205752.jpg

My New Years resolution was to stop cooking all frozen meals and start actually cooking! I still throw in a sams club dinner here and there when I don’t feel like cooking of course.

Tonight is meatball chili!

Ingredients
1 14 ounce package fully cooked refrigerated or frozen beef meatballs, thawed
1 16 ounce package Santa Fe medley frozen mixed vegetables (corn, black beans, and red peppers)
2 cups chopped fresh tomatoes and/or cherry tomatoes
1 1/2 cups water
1 tablespoon chili powder
3 tablespoons tomato paste
Sliced jalapeno peppers, chopped cherry tomatoes, and/or fresh cilantro

Directions
1. In a Dutch oven combine thawed meatballs and vegetables, fresh tomatoes, the water, chili powder, and tomato paste. Cook, covered, over medium-low heat for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
2. Ladle chili into bowls. If desired, top with jalapeno peppers, cherry tomatoes, and/or cilantro.

It was so easy to prepare and cooks in only 20 minutes!

My husband gave it 8/10 stars with the extra jalapeño topping!

I’m not one for spicy but other reviews said to add more chili powder for better results!

I found this idea here

  1. What a great recipe! And so cute that you and your husband take “ratings” for them. 8 out of 10 isn’t bad! It’s always a treat to me when I find a successful meal to make in a Dutch Oven. I feel so fancy. 🙂

      I had to Google what is a Dutch oven! Haha 🙂 yes I always ask what he rates it so I know if I should make it again… Anything under a 6 goes in the not unless we are starving pile! 😉
