Sweet & Spicy Meatballs with Broccoli Salad

Sweet and Spicy Meatballs are a fan favorite. We did these for MealFit Ready This week and they were a huge hit. The Chipotle Peppers in adobo sauce can be found in the Hispanic Section.

I should’t really call these Sweet and “Spicy,” because the “spice” I added to them isn’t “hot.” Does that make sense? I really don’t care if it does or not because these are damn good.

I really wasn’t expecting much, but after taste-testing one … ahem a few … I was pleasantly surprised.
