    Step 1

    I have a guide that explains how to make the meat for the meatballs :). so prepare them ahead of time; and you can wait a day or just start right after u prepare the meat;

    Step 2

    This is how the ground beef should look once your done!

    Step 3

    also if meat is not sticking together add 1 egg to the mixture and put in fridge for an hour

    Step 4

    Dice onions

    Step 5

    Then Dice the garlic and put in pan which you will cook meatballs in.and sauté the onions and garlic to a light brown

    Step 6

    sauté them light brown ; they can be lighter than this; and tilt the pan so that the oil will be separated and let onions cool off.

    Step 7

    separating oil from onions

    Step 8

    Now cut the green peppers; you can use jalepeno peppers if you like and dice 1 tomato

    Step 9

    You can add as much green peppers as u like; to it tast we added just a few

    Step 10

    Now at this time you want to start making the meatballs in a separate pan! Form the meatball;

    Step 11

    Roll it in your palm until it is round shape

    Step 12

    And put in pan with little oil

    Step 13

    Keep doing this and keep turning them! See they are getting darker on the sides

    Step 14

    so many meatballs!! keep turning them!

    Step 15

    Now once the onions have cooled off a bit; but them in a blender; leave the oil in the pan; you will use the same pan and oil later

    Step 16

    Add the tomato and blend!!! it may stop blending but don't worry just add the peppers and water!

    Step 17

    Adding the green peppers

    Step 18

    And blend!

    Step 19

    Step 20

    If it stops blending add a little water not to much! (if u need more while blending you can add it)

    Step 21

    Step 22

    Now it's all blended; should look like this; onion tomato and green peppers

    Step 23

    Next. Take all of the blended mixture and put it back in the pan u used to sauté onions in the same oil! now keep cooking the mixture

    Step 24

    While you were blending all of the ingredients your meatballs should have been cooking; and you should keep turning them!

    Step 25

    They are getting brown; keep doing it!

    Step 26

    now add the red chili pepper and salt in the pan with the blended onion! (not the meatballs)i used about 1 and 1/2. spoons of both; but you have to put as much as you think you would like

    Step 27

    both of them are cooking

    Step 28

    now once the mixture is Cooked a little for about 10 mins. (should look like this color) and meatballs have been cooked; add all the meatballs to the pan with the blended onion mixture..

    Step 29

    All of them!!! you are almost done!!

    Step 30

    mix them up so all the sauce covers them! the meatballs should not break

    Step 31

    now after about 7 mins of cooking them; add About 2 glasses of water

    Step 32

    u should jus be able to see the tips of the meatballs!

    Step 33

    lower the heat! really slow

    Step 34

    and put a lid on it! they should be ready in 10-20 mins; maybe more; you will know when it's ready because it will have a thicker consistency!! this whole process should take about 1 hour!!
