Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the first four ingredients. Crumble beef over mixture and mix well. Shape into 1-in. balls.
  2. In a large saucepan, brown meatballs; drain. Add the picante sauce, corn, beans, tomatoes and water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 20 minutes or until the meat is no longer pink. Yield: 8 servings (2 quarts).
To make dry bread crumbs, arrange bread slices, on a baking sheet. Bake at 300° until completely dry and golden; cool. Place in a resealable plastic bag; crush with a rolling pin. Season with salt, pepper and dried herbs if desired. One slice of bread yields about 1/3 cup dry crumbs.
