More About This Recipe

  • 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. You are absolutely welcome to make your own meatballs! By all means, 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! Garnish them with some chopped parsley, stick some toothpicks in a few and watch the mouthal chaos unfold. Ya gotta do this.
