Step By Step  

These meatballs are dressed for the season with sweet heat.

As prepared by Bev Cooks,

Spicy and sweet and all the things that are neat. Wait, what?

Ya know when you go to a party and there are those "meatballs" in a slow cooker? And you're not sure about that "glaze" that's on them? And you become that person that puts "quotation marks" on "everything"?

Happens to us all. 

WELL, here are some ridiculously easy meatballs with a gawgeous cranberry chili glaze on them. A glaze that you don't have to question. A glaze that you don't have to second guess. AND I added allspice because it's Christmas.

Get it on your appetizer table, stat!

Quotation marks sold separately.

 

Cranberry Chili Meatballs

Start by combining some cranberry sauce, chili sauce, brown sugar, some cumin, chili powder and allspice in a big pot. Simmer it a few minutes until the sugar dissolves.

NOW, you are absolutely welcome to make your own meatballs! By all means, do.it.up. But if you're in a time crunch, frozen meatballs work just fine. Just thaw them a little bit before hand. Toss them in the pot!

Twenty five minutes later, baby. GLAZED.

Garnish them with some chopped parsley, stick some toothpicks in a few and watch the mouthal chaos unfold. 

Ya gotta do this. 

 

Bev wants you to "get glazed." Oh wait she's not supposed to be using quotation marks. For more musings, visit her blog Bev Cooks and her Tablespoon profile.
