    1 can of cranberry sauce
    1 jar of heinz chili sauce
    1 can of any flavor diet soda (I use ginger ale)
    1-2lb of ground beef (I didn't use lean so the nutrition will show higher fat.. but use lean, or use chicken/turkey!)

    Meatballs: ground beef, seasoning to your taste, 1 egg if you want

    ALSO! Sometimes I toss in a few crushed red pepper flakes into the sauce to give it a little kick ;)


Dump 3 ingredients into small saucepan.
Stir until smooth.
Bring to a boil.

Squish meat into 1 inch balls.
Toss them into the sauce.

Reduce heat and simmer about 30 -45 minutes.

These are yummy.. although not so great in terms of sugar content from the cranberry sauce.

Great over rice, pasta or plain.
