Chili Meatball Casserole

When I saw this recipe over at Kayotic Kitchen I thought this might be something the hubby would really like, and I was right!

mashed potatoes
1lb ground beef
1 large onion
2 bell peppers
1 can kidney beans
1/2 cup corn
4 tbsp salsa
4 tbsp ketchup
2 garlic cloves
1 tsp chili powder
1 14oz can diced tomatoes
2 tsp tomato paste
2 tsp worcester sauce
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp dried parsley
1 tbsp dried parsley
1/4 cup breadcrumbs
2 tbsp sweet chili sauce
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp nutmeg
2 tbsp oil
1 egg
Shredded cheese

Make mashed potatoes, by cooking 2lbs of peeled potatoes in salted water, and mash with butter, milk, pepper and a pinch of nutmeg. Set aside.

In a mixing bowl, add the ground beef, paprika, 1/2 tsp salt and pepper, 1/2 tsp curry powder, 1/2 tsp nutmeg, 1 tsp dried parsley and 2 tbsp chili sauce, 1 egg and 1/4 cup breadcrumbs. Mix all together and form into small meatballs.

Fry meatballs in a little oil until browned, remove from pan.

Add diced onion, garlic and the bell peppers to the pan and cook until soft.

Add 2 tsp tomato paste, 1/2 tsp ground cumin, 1 tsp chili powder, a 14oz can diced tomatoes, 4 tbsp salsa and 4 tbsp ketchup, 2 tsp worcester sauce and a tbsp dried parsley and simmer for 10 minutes.

Add the beans, corn and simmer for another 5 minutes, then add the meatballs back into the pan.

Transfer the meatballs and sauce to a large oven dish. Top with the mashed potatoes and the shredded cheese. Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes, or until browned.
