Recipe Summary

  • 2 ½ pounds ground beef
  • ½ cup bread crumbs
  • ½ cup dried minced onion
  • 2 tablespoons dried cilantro
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 11 ounces chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
  • 1 egg

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

Mix beef, bread crumbs, dried onion, cilantro, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, and black pepper together in a bowl.

Finely chop chipotle peppers and add peppers, adobo sauce, and egg to meat mixture. Mix well. Roll into 1 1/2-inch meatballs.

Heat a skillet over high heat. Brown meatballs in the hot skillet, turning as needed, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer to a rimmed baking sheet.

Bake in the preheated oven until no longer pink in the centers, 8 to 10 minutes.

Chipotle Meatballs

Together in a bowl, mix the meat, egg, garlic, salt and mint leaves. Then add in the rice (or breadcrumbs).

Using your fingers or a spoon, mix everything together, being careful to get an even distribution without beating or compacting the mixture too much (which turns out a dense meatball). Then I form the mixture into 12 meatballs, rolling them gently between my palms without pressing too hard. (Meatballs made with rice will be a little wet at this stage, but they cook up lighter, which is why I prefer them.)

Next, in a very large (12-inch) skillet (I like to work in heavy cast iron or nonstick), heat the oil (or one of its stand-ins) over medium. When it's hot, add the meatballs in a single uncrowded layer. As they brown on one side, turn them with tongs or a spatula, continuing until they're evenly and richly browned all over, 6 to 8 minutes.

While the meatballs are browning, combine all the ingredients for the tomato-chipotle mixture in a blender jar and pulse until coarsely pureed.

When the meatballs are ready, pour the sauce mixture evenly over the top, making sure to coat the meatballs evenly and loosen any that may be sticking a little. After covering the pan and reducing the heat to medium-low, let the meatballs cook for about 10 minutes more, until they're cooked through.

To serve the meatballs, remove them to 4 dinner dinner plates, leaving behind as much of the sauce as possible. Raise the temperature under the skillet to medium-high and stir in 1/3 cup water (or beef broth, chicken broth, beer or wine) and let the sauce simmer for a minute or two. Season the sauce with salt (usually about 1 teaspoon) and spoon it over the meatballs and your albodingas are ready.

Sweet Chipotle Barbecue Meatballs

These Sweet Chipotle Barbecue Meatballs are the perfect easy appetizer for game day get together and holiday celebrations. Easy and delicious, they’re always a hit with kids and adults alike.

Between football watching, and the holidays, I always serve (and eat) a lot of appetizers this time of year, and cocktail meatballs are one of my favorite hors d’oeuvres.

With the help of precooked, frozen meatballs, it’s so simple to throw together a yummy sauce, and then just warm everything in the slow cooker for a few hours.

I’m always trying to come up with great new “flavors” for my party meatballs, and this chipotle barbecue version was a bit hit with my family.

I’m already planning to make these meatballs for both Christmas and New Year’s Eve. I have a feeling they’ll be one of the first things to disappear.

The sweet and spicy sauce for these meatballs starts with a bottle of your favorite barbecue sauce. Whisk that together with some raspberry jam, Worcestershire sauce and chipotles in adobo and you’re in business!

Chipotles in adobo are a canned pepper, usually found in the Mexican food section of the grocery store. They are super spicy, so start out with less–you can always add more.

I never use a whole can at once, but extras can be placed in small zip-tops bags and frozen. I usually put two peppers per bag, since I never use more than that in a recipe.

If the combination of ingredients seems strange to you, trust me, it all comes together in the perfect blend of flavors. And yes, you can use homemade meatballs in this recipe. Just before you cook them before adding them to the slow cooker.

These Sweet Chipotle Barbecue Meatballs will be making a regular appearance at our house–especially on game days and holidays. I hope you love them as much as we do!

How to make honey chipotle meatballs for dinner:

I like to serve these meatballs for dinner sometimes. Brown rice or jasmine rice works well with the sweet and spicy barbecue sauce. Also, can I just say that steamed broccoli with a drizzle of that honey barbecue sauce on top is everything! Or you can even add 3 cups of fresh broccoli florets to the slow cooker during the last 30 minutes , and then you don’t need to dirty extra dishes to steam the broccoli. WINNING. Low key is the way to go here! One batch of this recipe will serve eight people as a meal, with rice and broccoli as a side.

Last tip:

Spray the inside of your slow cooker insert with cooking spray before adding the ingredients for the sauce to make clean up a whole lot easier!

There&rsquos something super decadent about a steak burrito. With steak being more expensive than pork or chicken, it&rsquos not your everyday dinner.

But if you&rsquore splurging, why not get a good cut and make these delicious burritos?

Skirt steak is the best cut, but you could use sirloin as well for a juicy bite. If you can, let it marinate overnight and cook on a grill for the best taste.

Chipotle Meatballs

In a large bowl, combine the pork, 2 cloves finely chopped garlic, egg, mint, salt and crumbs or rice, mixing everything thoroughly. Form into 12 equal-size balls.

Set a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the fat and, when hot, lay in the meatballs. Cook, turning regularly, until browned all over, about 10 minutes.

While the meatballs are cooking, in a blender jar combine the canned chipotles, tomatoes, garlic and herbs. (If using dried chipotle colorado/morita, toast them in an ungreased skillet over medium heat until they fill the room with their aroma, 15 or 20 second. Flip and lightly toast the other side, then transfer to the blender jar and process until nearly pulverized.). Blend until coarsely pureed.

Pour the sauce over the meat balls, reduce the heat to medium and cook until the sauce is thick, about 7 minutes. Thin with water to an easily spoonable consistency, then season with salt, usually sbout ½ teaspoon. Dinner is ready.


    1. Stir together milk and bread crumbs in a large bowl.
    2. Cook bacon in a 10-inch heavy skillet over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until crisp. Transfer with a slotted spoon to paper towels to drain.
    3. Pour off all but 1 tablespoon fat from skillet, then cook onion, garlic, chipotles, cumin, and oregano in skillet, stirring, until onion is softened, about 3 minutes. Add water and cook, stirring and scraping up brown bits, until water has evaporated, about 1 minute. Stir into bread crumb mixture, then add ground meats, egg, parsley, bacon, and 1 teaspoon salt and mix well with your hands.
    4. Preheat broiler.
    5. Form scant tablespoons of meat mixture into balls and thread 3 balls 1/2 inch apart onto each skewer, arranging skewers on a lightly oiled broiler pan. Broil 3 to 4 inches from heat (do not turn) until browned and cooked through, 8 to 10 minutes.

    Not spicy, but good flavor. Will make again.

    I actually rated this as a ONE star, but it saved it as a three. Weird. Don't make this. It's a good idea but falls short of expectations. It wasn't spicy. And kind of bland.

    We like really spicy food, so I used 3 tsp. of the peppers. We actually found the sauce to be very bland. The meatballs were great, so I'll make this again with some additional spices in the sauce.

    I also really like spicy food, but this was just a bit too spicy for me. I did use ground turkey instead of beef chunk so maybe the spice was more intense? Anyway, if I make it again I'd definitely cut down on the chipotle chiles.

    My husband and I loved this recipe!! The name doesn't lie. it sure is spicy. I love spicy food, but this was a little too spicy for me. I would only put half the amount of chipotle in and make sure to chop it fine so you don't end up with a mouthful of fire. I would also suggest using diced tomatoes rather than whole, for a smoother sauce. Fantastic recipe. quick and VERY delicious!! Thanks Real Simple!!
