So we are under the white cover of snow. My oldest son Ricky, who is a professional cyclist, is now off-season and he is visiting me, Hurray!! He is so active, he always encourages me to do different things. We went off for a hike! Of course we were well equipped, with a warm jacket, gloves and a wool hat. Back home, my kitchen and my appetite are calling for some comfort food. This meatballs in fresh tomato salsa recipe is not the italian style for spaghetti, it is the mexican style that has a spicy kick. You can enjoy them with corn tortillas, refried beans or simply (if you want to go light) some steam vegetables.
MEATBALLS WITH FRESH TOMATO SALSA
1/2 Kg Ground beef
2 Medium Tomatoes
1/4 + 1/4 Medium Onion
1 Tablespoon soaked rice
1 Serrano chile
A Handful of Fresh Coriander
2 Cups of Boiling Water
Form one meatball about one and a half-inch diameter and add it to the boiling water while you make the next one. This give time for the water to heat the meatball, if you put all the meatballs at the same time it will cool the water and the meatballs will stick to each other.
Blend the rest tomato, onion and pour into the boiling meatballs. Cut a line lengthwise to the serrano chile and add it to the meatballs too. This is only to give a little bit of flavor, don’t be scared.
