These are easy and the reviews are as if you worked all day. The flavor of bbq sauce and jalapeno jelly mixed are this warm sweet and slightly spicy perfection. This is an old classic with a new twist. Also works well with cocktail little smokies.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

The whole crew loved this flavorful and easy meatballs recipe. The choice of chipotle BBQ sauce gives them flavor. Jalapeno jelly and garlic powder doctor the sauce up a bit and are a fantastic addition. These would be perfect for any gathering - a cocktail party, game day party, dinner party, etc. It's seriously easy to make, just add everything to the Crock Pot and let them cook.
