Appetizer Week: Chipotle Meatballs

By Fitnspicy @fitnspicy

Day 2 of appetizer week and I went for something a bit more traditional. The good ‘ol meatball. I am sure you have been at a party with a big crockpot of them, and while they are delicious I wanted to spice it up a bit.


Enter the glorious can of chipotle in adobo. Flavorful, smoky and adds some of that depth that you look for in a recipe. Another one you can make ahead and then heat up in the crockpot.


But I am guessing these will go fast during a party. People just seem to love the meatball. I made it a teeny tiny bit healthier and opted for turkey meatballs too.
