Mexican Style meatballs

 

This does not have to cook all day, just a few hours for it to soak in the juices.

 

Pour big bag frozen cooked turkey meatballs into crock pot

Add 5 cans chicken broth

4 cans diced tomatoes with juice

4 cloves minced garlic

1 small chopped onion

5 or 6 chipolte chiles in adobo

1 cup chopped fresh cilantro

 

I let them simmer for 2-3 hours, turn the crock pot down during a get together.

 

It is good for parties. Throw it together and people will gobble them up!

Mmmmm Paula those sound so good!

 

This recipe is yummy and easy to make. You use a skillet for like 6 minutes then it sits in the crock pot. I'm bad with measurements and would have to make it again to measure, but you can't really mess it up:

 

chuck roast or other beef you would use for pot roast

6-8 7 oz. cans El Pato Tomato Sauce (or 2 of the big cans)

1-2 onions cut into rings

potatoes, peeled and cut into big pieces

1-2 bottles of beer like corona/modelo

 

 

Season the meat well (salt/pepper/garlic powder) and sear in skillet in olive oil for about 3 minutes each side so that a crust forms on the meat.

 

Transfer to crock pot and cover with El Pato sauce, onions, and beer. Add potatoes about an hour before it is finished. Let cook for 2-3 hours or until meat is really tender.

 

Variations:

You can use 1/2 El Pato and 1/2 regular tomato sauce if it's too spicy

You can also add carrots when you add the potatoes.

I leave the meat whole, but you can also use chunks (like for stew).

ok, well it's not really a recipe I have a friend of mine told me what to put in it...

 

you can get a whole chicken, but I prefer to just use the breasts.... I add some chicken broth, parsley, garlic, pepper, potatoes, you can add whatever veggies you want, my friend adds celery....

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
