Southwest meatballs use Country Bob's Honey Habanero All Purpose Sauce for an extra kick of flavor! We're always down to spice things up, but if you're looking for a more classic taste, try substituting with the original All Purpose Sauce too!

spicy meatball recipe

 Country Bob's Seasoning Salt
 2 tbsp Country Bob's Barbeque Sauce
 3 tbsp Country Bob's Honey Habanero All Purpose Sauce
 ¾ lb Ground Beef
 ¾ lb Ground Country Pork
 ¼ cup Diced Red Bell Peppers
 ¼ cup Diced Green Onions (white parts only; save the green to garnish)
 ¼ cup Diced Jalapenos
 4 Cloves of Garlic Sliced
 ¼ cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese
 1 Egg
 Breadcrumbs (optional)

Preheat oven to 400°F. In a large bowl combine Country Bob's Barbecue Sauce, beef, pork, pepper, cilantro, red onion, green onion, jalapeño, garlic, egg and cheese.


Using your hands, mix ingredients until the pork and beef are well blended. If your mixture is too moist, use breadcrumbs to firm it up a bit.


Once mixed, form meatballs about the size of a golf ball.


Place meatballs on a baking sheet with a rack. This prevents them from falling apart while they cook.


After 30 minutes, take out meatballs and set oven to broil. In large bowl, coat meatballs with Country Bob's Honey Habanero All Purpose Sauce.


Place the meatballs back on the rack and broil them until the recently added sauce begins to caramelize.


Remove from oven and garnish with diced green onions.


Place parchment paper or aluminum foil under the meatballs to prevent scorching and to make for easy cleanup.
