a LOT of people use grape jelly... a girl at work cued me in on this little secret for her super-simple meatballs. EVERYBODY loves the sweet & spicy combination.
- 1 (1 lb) bag frozen meatballs
- 1 (14 ounce) can cranberry sauce
- 1 (16 ounce) jar picante sauce
- dump the ingredients into a crockpot.
- start cooking on med-high heat, depending on your crockpot, 3 hours before serving.
Nothing could be easier than making this sauce, and it's a wonderful contrast of tangy flavors. Next time I will use homemade meatballs. That was the only drawback to this recipe, and one easily remedied. Thanks Missysioux for getting me out of the grape jelly rut.
Great flavor! I was surprised by the ingredients but gave them a try anyway and I'm very glad I did. My crockpot is notorious for overcooking things - I may give these another try in a pan sometime and see what result I get. Scorched sauce just does not go well with this recipe! Apart from my personal battles with my crockpot though, I definitely recommend giving this one a try. Thanks for the great idea!
These were fabulous! Brought them to work for a potluck & they were gone QUICK! They were liked so much, someone signed me up to bring them again to the next potluck...a month later! Awesome recipe and soooo easy to make!
