  1. In a large bowl, combine meat, onion flakes, and parsley flakes.
  2. Form into 24 (1-inch) meatballs. Place meatballs in a large skillet sprayed with olive oil-flavored cooking spray.
  3. Cook for about 10 minutes or until meatballs are browned.
  4. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, combine tomato juice, chicken broth, cream-style corn, and chili seasoning. Bring mixture to a boil.
  5. Stir in uncooked rice. Gently add browned meatballs.
  6. Lower heat, cover, and simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • If your family enjoys extra-spicy flavor, why not experiment by increasing (gradually!) the amount of chili seasoning?
