RO*TEL Sauce Mild: Review, Porcupine Meatballs

This RO*TEL is a kinder, gentler version of our Zesty Original Tomato and Green Chili Sauce. Still packed with flavor, just with less of the zest.
The big bold flavor of tomatoes and green chilies has been tamed slightly to deliver a more subtle sauce. The mixture of spices is much less daring and more doable for the sensitive palate.

The savory nature of this sauce is wonderful substitute in any recipe that calls for sauce. It'll perk up your Pizza, brighten your Rigatoni, and moisten your meatloaf.

We were sent a can of RO*TEL Sauce Mild (Tomatoes & Green Chiles) for review. I thought I'd try them out to zest up the Porcupine Meatballs we like. It added a nice little sippy flavor to the sauce, it was great.

Porcupine Meatballs

1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
3/4 cup cooked long-grain rice
1/2 cup beef broth
1/4 cup diced onion
1 Tbl crushed garlic
1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper

30 oz crushed tomatoes w/basil
1 can RO*TEL Sauce Mild
2 teaspoons (gluten free) Worcestershire sauce
1 cup beef broth
2 Tbl crushed garlic

Mix the ground beef, rice, 1/2 cup of broth, the chopped onion, garlic, seasoned salt, and pepper (you could do this step ahead of time, so flavors get into the meat). Shape the mixture by tablespoons into 1 1/2-inch meatballs. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet and cook the meatballs over medium heat just until brown; drain off excess grease (OR bake 350' for 15 mins). Place in a 9x13 pan. Combine crushed tomatoes, RO*TEL Sauce Mild, remaining 1/2 cup broth, Worcestershire sauce and garlic, pour over meatballs. Bake 350' for 30 minutes.

Serve with mashed potatoes.
