1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1/4 cup seeded, finely chopped fresh Jalapeño peppers
1 large clove garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon chili powder

Preheat oven to 375°F. Mix all ingredients in large bowl just until blended. Shape into 36 (1-inch) balls.
Place in 2 lightly greased baking pans.
Bake 12-14 minutes or until done (160°F). Test one and make sure it is done.
