Tamale Ball Appetizer

This is a fairly easy and tasty appetizer recipe. In a bowl mix together 1/2 lb ground pork, 1/2 lb ground beef, 2T ground cumin, 1T each of ground cardamom, coriander, oregano and powdered garlic, 3/4C enchilada sauce and 3/4C corn meal, salt and pepper to taste. You can add heat if you wish in the form of Tabasco or red pepper flakes. At this point cook a small portion of the mix in the microwave, taste and adjust the seasonings if necessary. Form the mixture into 1/2" balls and simmer for one hour in 1 14 oz can of enchilada sauce, a sprig of cilantro and a squeeze of fresh lime juice. Garnish with chopped cilantro and serve on toothpicks.
