    Chef #376010's Note:

    Ready, Set, Cook! Hidden Valley Ranch Contest Entry. Fiesta Pork Balls make a great appetizer for your party planning. Serve right out of the oven or keep warm in a slow cooker. I created this recipe to change up the everyday meatball appetizers I've been making throughout the years. Enjoy!
