Fiesta Meatballs

Finally pulled out the crockpot and put it to good use over the weekend!  Glad I did because these meatballs were a HIT.  Well.....except for my daughter who over the last few months has decided anything with "flavor" is "HOT" and spicy.  I personally don't like much "spice" to my food either, but I think these were delish and had great flavor!  First gather your ingredients:

1 lb frozen meatballs, thawed (I actually doubled the recipe at the last minute and used one bag thawed and one not)
28 oz can crushed tomatoes
1 cup water
1 1/2 T Tastefully Simple Fiesta Party Dip Mix
1 1/2 T Tastefully Simple Garlic Garlic Seasoning Blend
4 oz shredded Cheddar Cheese
You simply throw all the ingredients in your Crockpot (except for the Cheese), stir together and cook on Low for at least 2-3 hours, but can cook for up 8 hours.  Would not recommend much longer or meatballs may get too mushy and fall apart.
Right before you are ready to serve, sprinkle the meatballs with the cheese and replace lid until cheese is melted.


And Enjoy!!!  You could eat these over pasta, enjoy as appetizer bites or simply eat alone.  Or, perhaps put on a hoagie bun for a meatball sub!! YUM. I may have to try that next time.
