How to Make BIG EARL'S PARTY MEATBALLS

Step-by-Step

  1. Pour the four bottles of chili sauce into a large crock pot. Rinse each bottle out with the apple cider vinegar. After rinsing the fourth bottle add the vinegar to the crock pot.
  2. Add the crushed pineapple, grape jelly, brown sugar, hot sauce, jalapeno peppers, and carbonated cola into the crock pot. Cook on medium for about 1 hour, stirring until the sugar is dissolved, the jelly has melted, and all the ingredients are completely incorporated.
  3. Add meatballs and stir to coat them with sauce. Cook on low for about six hours if the meatballs were frozen, about three hours if they were thawed. Stir occasionally.
  4. About 1 hour before serving add the pineapple tidbits and continue to cook on low.
  5. NOTE:
    You can use hot or mild chili sauce depending on how spicy you want the sauce to be.

    Liquid Fire: 4 bottles hot chili sauce, plus hot sauce of your choice, plus 4 finely diced jalapeno peppers with seeds.

    Very Spicy: 4 bottles hot chili sauce.

    Little Spicy: 3 hot chili sauce and 1 mild or original chili sauce

    Medium Spicy: 2 hot chili sauce and 2 mild or original chili sauce

    Not So Spicy: 1 hot chili sauce and 3 mild or original chili sauce

    No Kick at All: 4 mild or original chili sauce
