  1. A nice easy meatball that has a nice little spicy flavor and was met with mixed reviews. DH thought these were a 5 star while I felt they were a 4 star. Made using ground beef and worchestershire sauce options. Thanks for the post.
  2. Made this recipe as given, & although I do like them very much, enjoying their wonderful flavor, I wouldn't mind trying them with ground turkey as did the previous reviewer! This will be included on my small buffet for a few New Year's Eve guests tonight! Thanks for sharing your recipe! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]
  3. DH and I loved them. Definately a keeper. We enjoyed the spicy flavor and the ease of making. I baked them at 425 degrees for about 15-20 minutes like loof did and they turned out perfect. Made for December Tag Game ~ Una Fiesta De Tapas ~ A Tapas Party.
  4. These meat balls were delicious with a nice bit of spice to them. I made them a bit bigger than 1 inch because it was 'just for us' for a weeknight dinner. I used ground lean turkey which worked well. I did not have fresh cilantro and I am sure they will be even better with it added.
  5. Luv 'em. These are spicy, moist, lovely, tasty and easy to make. Who would have thought wine would be great in a meatball. I used venison and since that can be dry was a bit heavy handed on the olive oil. For the chili, I used green powdered. Chose Worcestershire These have a lovely heat and are so moist they don't need sauce or anything else.
