THE STORY BEHIND:

Slow Cooked Honey Chipotle Meatballs

SLOW COOKED HONEY CHIPOTLE MEATBALLS

by Karly Campbell

The following recipe is sponsored by the Crock-Pot® brand. These simple meatballs are perfect for game day. Everyone loves the sweet and spicy sauce, and I find the guys hovering around the snack table eating them throughout the whole game. I keep them pretty mild for the kids, but you can increase the chipotle powder to give them even more of a spicy kick.

You’ll need adobo sauce for this recipe. It’s dark red and made of herbs, ground chiles, and vinegar. Chipotle peppers are often packed in adobo sauce.

I like to keep these meatballs in the Crock-Pot® slow cooker on warm alongside a pile of toothpicks and a bowl of ranch dressing for easy dipping. They’re also good in a slider roll with a drizzle of ranch!
