Suzee's Spicy Meatballs with BBQ Dip

These meatballs were inspired by Ann's BBQ Ribs. Rick loves the spice, so I thought this might be a nice way to enjoy it!

Ann's Spice Blend
2T cumin
1T chili powder
1T dry mustard
1T coarse salt
.5 T cayenne pepper
.5 T cardamom
.5 T cinnamon

Suzee's Spicy Meatballs
1 lb extra lean ground beef
1 egg
1 piece of bread cut up
1/2 cup liquid (apple juice, water)
1/4 cup spice mix

Soak the bread in the liquid for 10 minutes or so. Add this to a bowl containing the remaining ingredients. Mix well, but lightly so the meat doesn't become compressed. Form meat into balls. Fry in a non-stick pan on all sides to cook through.

Suzee's BBQ Dip
1/2 C sour cream
2T BBQ sauce

Mix dip ingredients.

Serve the meatballs hot with the dipping sauce on the side.

Rick liked it, and the meatballs reheat well in the teflon plan. Sounds like a winner :)
