I got this recipe from Ziplist. For some reason my pinch button didn't recognize this as a recipe so I had to copy it the old-fashioned way, but they sounded so good I had to put it where I could find it again.

How to Make Jalapeno Meatballs

Step-by-Step

  1. Make the dressing for dipping:
    Stir together all ingredients listed for the dressing. Refrigerate while making meatballs so that flavors have time to combine.
  2. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

    Make the meatballs:
    Add all the meatball ingredients to a large bowl and combine well.
  3. Take meat mixture and roll into balls. I scoop the meat mixture into a 1/4 cup measuring cup (use a smaller or larger one depending on the size you want for your meatballs), then I shake the meat mixture out of the measuring cup and shape into a ball. It usually shakes out of the cup pretty much in a ball shape so it doesn't take much to make it into a ball. Place 1- 2 inches apart in pan. Bake 14 - 15 minutes.
