Porcupine Meatballs

It's snowing & very cold outside right now, so I thought I'd make something "homey" for dinner.  This recipe reminds me of a few mom & our home in Michigan; but mostly it reminds me of my little brother Nick- growing up this recipe was one of his fav's.
*Maybe I'm a touch homesick...well, probably more than a "touch.."

{Porcupine Meatballs}

1 Pound ground beef
1/2 onion; finely diced
1/2 green pepper; finely diced
1/2 Cup uncooked instant rice
1/2 Teaspoon salt
1/2 Teaspoon chili powder
1/2 Teaspoon garlic powder
2 cans tomato soup
1/2 Cup water (plus a splash more)

Mix soup & water in casserole dish (so you have a gravy-like consistency)
Mix all other ingredients together & form small meatballs.  Drop in casserole dish. 
Cover & bake @ 350 degrees of 1 1/2 hours

*I Always serve with egg noodles & sugar snap peas
