(For Friday Favorites we spotlight past recipes that you may have missed, and I've been intrigued by these Tamale Balls from Taste and Tell ever since I first saw the recipe!)

I love the idea of meatballs cooked in the slow cooker, especially when they have an unusual twist like these delicious-sounding Slow Cooker Tamale Balls from Taste and Tell.  Ground beef and pork is combined with cornmeal, flour, and Mexican flavored spices and then cooked in a tomato and chili powder flavored sauce.
