For a side dish to meatballs in Texas I took the rice "amber" TM "Mistral"very tasty, crisp, long-grain rice. Lower the bag with the rice in boiling water. Cook on low heat for about 30 minutes.
While cooking rice, start making the meatballs: I took the mixed minced beef and pork.
Finely chop the onion.
Then put the mince in a broad and deep capacity in which it will be convenient to mix. Peanuts grind in a blender (instead of peanuts I took the cashews). In minced meat add chopped onion, corn, chopped peanuts, chopped cilantro, spices and salt to taste, Tabasco sauce (a few drops).
Mix thoroughly with your hands the stuffing so all ingredients are evenly distributed.
Cut cheese cubes.
Now take a piece of meat the size as a regular hamburger. Make round flat cakes with a thickness of at least 1 cm, and in the center of the tortilla put the cheese cube.
Carefully wrap the cheese in the stuffing, molding meat ball. Ensure that there are no cracks on the surface of the meat (otherwise when frying, all the cheese will leak). So prepare all the meatballs.
In a pan heat vegetable oil and fry the meatballs for 2 minutes on each side.
Then lay the meatballs on a baking tray covered with baking paper (then to the meatballs better removed from the pan). The pan with the meatballs and put in a preheated 190 degree oven for 15-20 minutes.
It took 30 minutes and the rice is cooked. Get the bag and allow water to drain.
Serve meatballs Tex-Mex rice "amber" in the bags (carefully open packet on the side) and place on a plate. Meatballs should be hot to the cheese inside, not frozen, and was melted and gooey.
