Picante Meatball Heroes

2 1/2 C. picante sauce
1 lb. ground beef
1 C. finely crushed tortilla chips
1 egg, beaten
6 long hard rolls or hoagie sandwich rolls, split
Shredded lettuce
1/2 C. shredded Cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 350F. Mix together thoroughly 1/2 cup of the picante sauce, beef, chips and egg. Shape firmly into 18 (1 1/2-inch) meatballs and lay them on a baking sheet with sides. Put in the oven and bake 10-15 minutes, or until meatballs are just cooked through.
In the meantime, warm up remaining picante sauce in a skillet and heat to a simmer. When meatballs are done, put them into the skillet with the salsa, cover and let simmer for 10 - 15 minutes.

Serve in split rolls, with lettuce on the bottom, then 3 meatballs per roll and cheese on the top.

Makes 6 servings.
