Taco Meatballs in Chipotle Cream Sauce………………………..

If you love meatballs like I love meatballs, then you must try these! Ground beef, potato, cheese, onion….all that yummy goodness rolled into little balls of YUM! Use ground chicken or turkey if you’re not into beef. They are so delicious as is, but after simmering in a pool of creamy, spicy chipotle sauce…..oh wow. So good. I posted a chipotle sauce recipe recently and this is similar to that one, but this one is a bit lighter. This is a great potluck dish…..and it’s what I am taking to our office potluck tomorrow! I’m going to put it all into a crockpot to keep warm. I’m tellin ya, you just gotta try these.  🙂
