Chipotle-Pineapple Meatballs: Game Day Grub

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.

  • These sound delish tho maybe a bit sweet. I'm going to try it with my own meatballs. Did you make it in the slow cooker for ease or do you think that contributed to the flavor coz I was thinking of making them on top of the stove. Thank you for the recipe for the sauce!
