Roasted Garlic Meatball Chili over Cauliflower Rice

 

This meal came about as a result of the Prego Farmers’ Market® Roasted Garlic sauce I found at Walmart.  I picked up some sauce, along with other ingredients I would need to make my meatball chili. Grumpy always ate rice with his chili, however, I really am not the biggest fan of rice. I grew up eating chili with either cornbread or corn chips. This time I decided to give the cauliflower rice a try. I wanted to stay with produce as much as possible and keep my carbs lower by not adding the starch to our meal.

This Meatball Chili was an absolute hit with both Grumpy and I and I will definitely be making it again! The picked at peak flavor from the sauce in this chili recipe brings an that warm and inviting feeling to your family table. The cauliflower rice went perfect with the chili and I’ve now found a solution to the “rice” dilemma in our house!

We really love our chili full of beef. These meatballs were the perfect addition to the chili. I decided to do them a little different than I had ever done before. I omitted any breadcrumbs from the recipe and added shredded carrots, finely chopped onion, roasted garlic and cilantro. Moistened and added flavor from the beef broth. I have a keeper here!

Let’s make the meatballs!

I gently mixed the meatball ingredients together then I used my small cookie scoop to portion them out. I loved seeing the flecks of green and orange in the meatballs! You should get about 24 perfectly portioned meatballs.

Bake the meatballs!

Baking these saves a lot of time standing over the stove and frying. While they are baking you can prep the rest of your ingredients.

Make the Cauliflower Rice

This couldn’t be easier! If you want to save time, you can buy your cauliflower already “riced”. However, you can rice your own quite easily by finely chopping it in your food processor.

Assemble the Meatball Chili and serve

This meal is so good with just the chili and riced cauliflower, that you really don’t need any more add ons. The Prego Farmers’ Market® Roasted Garlic Sauce adds a ton of flavor and combined with the chili and cumin powder, it’s a very easy chili sauce to fall in love with!
