My sister is the keeper of this recipe from our mother.  It is a family favorite and she is the one who is asked to make it.  She has perfected it and the tradition continues…..

This is a classic Mexican dish.  It can be as spicy as you want.  My daughter’s grandmother  always had the hard boiled egg surprise in the meatballs.  Mina was by far the best Mexican food cook I have ever known.  The meatballs can also be made with any combination of ground meats. This is simple Mexican comfort food.
Buen Provecho!

hard boiled eggs in sliced into quarters
4 large tomatoes
2 cloves of garlic
1/4 onion
1 small can of chipotles en adobo

Mix all the ingredients except for the eggs.  Form meatballs around the piece of hard boiled egg.  Fry until browned and set aside.  On a comal or a dry cast iron skillet grill tomatoes and onions until  charred.  Remove skin from tomatoes and place both in a blender with only a small amount of water.  Add the garlic and 1 or 2 chipotles to taste.  Season with salt and pepper.
Place sauce in a skillet and add the meatballs.  Let it simmer for about 10 minutes.  Serve over rice.
