All the delicious flavors of a tamale packed in a meatball.
But, it was still a possibility.
I haven't actually paid much attention to it all. Football is not my thing. But, a Super Bowl party with tons of appetizers and junk food? Wouldn't be the worse way to spend an evening.
How about these meatballs for a great appetizer for a party? Super Bowl or otherwise. You can just make them for dinner too..perfectly acceptable. These meatballs are like little tamales rolled up in a ball.
They have a great taste and you will find it tough to eat just one!
