      This recipe is from the mystery “The 27* Ingredient
   Chili Con Carne Murders” by Nancy Pickard and Virginia
   Rich.
      In a mixing bowl, mix ground beef,garlic powder,
   cumin, oregano and cilantro. Shape into 1-oz meatballs.
      In a large pot, saute in the butter, the tomatoes,
   chilies, garlic, onions, cabbage, zucchini, and
   cilantro. Add the beef broth. Just before the broth
   comes to a bil, add the meatballs, one at a time. Add
   salt and pepper to taste. Simmer for 30 minutes. Top
   with chopped cilantro just before serving.
      Note: This is even better the next day.
