Let's Make It
Mix 1/2 cup salsa and seasonings in large bowl until blended. Add meat, bread crumbs and egg; mix just until blended. Shape into 24 (1-inch) meatballs.
Press 1 cheese cube into center of each meatball, pressing meat mixture around cheese to completely enclose cheese. Place in slow cooker sprayed with cooking spray. Mix tomato sauce and remaining salsa until blended. Pour over meatballs; cover with lid.
