Chipotle-Pineapple Meatballs: Game Day Grub
Game day requires amazing finger food: appetizers, desserts, chips and dip, cute bite-sized veggies, etc. Great food needs loads of flavor to pack a punch on your Super Bowl spread! These Game Day Sweet-and-Spicy Chipotle-Pineapple Meatballs are the perfect lip-smacking treats to impress your guests and put them in the mood for some football watching. They have a tropical and exotic taste that is unique among all the traditional flavors of football food. I am not entirely sure whether it’s the food or the football that makes a great party, but I am leaning toward the food.
