I’m calling this recipe “Three Ingredient” Meatballs because they aren’t exactly ingredients so much as three already prepared things that I am heating up and putting together. But when you mix these three things together you get really yummy sweet and spicy meatballs.

“Three Ingredient” Meatballs

You Need:

Ingredients

One bag frozen Italian meatballs (two pounds)
One can (14oz) of jellied cranberry sauce
One jar (14oz) of chipotle glaze grill sauce OR chili sauce

prep yo balls

Prepare your meatballs. The meatballs I got were already cooked and just had to be reheated in the oven or microwave. If you have a good from-scratch meatball recipe, leave it in the comments!

add cranberry sauce

Put your cranberry sauce in a sauce pan. Confession: jellied cranberry sauce freaks me out. The lines! ACK!

add chipotle sauce

Add your chipotle/chili sauce to the same pan.

mix over medium heat

Mix the two sauces together over medium heat until blended.

add to meatballs

Add your meatballs to the sauce (or your sauce to the meatballs!).

delicious

You can serve them on a platter, or put them in a chafing dish to keep warm.

yeah

I don’t even have words.

thumbs up!

Mike liked them a lot – they were too spicy for Annie to try, but she wanted to get in on the fun.

Enjoy!
