      Very good! As the other reviewer said, this definitely has a strong taste, but that's okay cause it's a GOOD one! :) I used 2 tsp onion powder instead of the 2 T onion flakes and only 2/3 chili sauce (because I ran out) and it turned out just fine! Thanks!

      This really has a tex-mex taste to it. Very dominate flavor. I cut the recipe in half and they came out great. Very easy to prepare. I made in advance and just reheated on the stove when ready to serve.Thanks Lainey for posting. :)

      These meatballs are yummy. I had 26 meatballs. Not too bad LOL I used skim milk, no garlic salt. I used reduced-sodium reduced-fat beef broth. They were very easy to do. I like the fact that they cook in the oven. They are very tasty. Yummy! Thanks Lainey. Made for Newest Zaar Tag
