Porcupine Meatballs

Porcupine meatballs were always a treat growing up.  As a kid, I thought they were so fun to eat.  Really, what kid wouldn't think it was fun to eat a porcupine?  These meatballs are slightly like meatloaf but with a little kick of flavor and some added texture.  This recipe is super easy--only two real steps.  I think you'll love them.

Porcupine Meatballs

1 lb ground beef
1/3 cup uncooked white rice
1/4 cup onion, chopped
1/4 water
1 can tomato soup (10 oz)
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/2 cup water

1. Combine ground beef, rice, onion, and 1/4 cup water until well combined.  Form into about 15 meatballs.
2. In a skillet, combine tomato soup, chili powder, and 1/2 cup water until well blended.  Bring to a boil and add meatballs.  Make sure the sauce really covers the meatballs as much as possible to keep the meatballs really moist.  Reduce heat and simmer gently for approximately one hour, stirring occasionally.
3. Eat your porcupines (by themselves or over steaming white rice).
