These Maple Chili Meatballs combine sweet and heat for the ultimate game day or party appetizer!
Fall is upon us and with it brings game days and potlucks and the need for quick, easy, and delicious appetizers. One of the things I love most about fall is that Maple is back in season. I love maple and I love that it’s an extremely versatile flavor that can be used for sweet and savory dishes.
For me, maple makes everything better, that’s probably the New Englander in me, but it’s true! Also, when we’re at parties, Matt and I tend to hang out by the meatballs all night, who needs the other stuff when you’ve got cocktail meatballs in a killer sauce. The chili sauce gives them a nice hint of heat that’s perfect for those who love it and still enjoyable for those who prefer things more on the mild side. Plus, did I mention you can make these in less than 30 minutes with only 6 ingredients!!! Seriously, these meatballs are AWESOME! And according to my husband they make great mini meatball sliders too!
