    riffraff's Note:

    This was in my local paper, from a PTA member. Easy to put together and very popular on a buffet. I have put the pan directly from the oven on the buffet table (after adding the sauce and cheese). They were gone before they got cold. I like them spicy so I add so cayenne to the ball mixture.

      I really loved the taste of these meatballs and the idea of using enchilada/tomato sauce to cover them in a chafing dish. The only problem was that the meatballs fell apart after cooking them. I think next time I will add some grated cheese and a bit more cornbread to the meatballs to help hold them together. I will definitely try them again. Made for the Tailgating tag, September, 2011.
