"This zesty meatball recipe is always a hit with any crowd. The basic, two-ingredient sauce can be switched up by simply combining Heinz Chili Sauce with any sweet spread such as peach jam, grape jelly or mango chutney. And, for the ultimate shortcut, you can use prepared meatballs." — Heinzitup.com

The meatballs were a bit on the salty side so I'm going to use just half the amount of salt next time I make these. I used hot pepper jelly instead of the currant jelly and they were delicious! Next time I'm going to try the citrus marmalade :)
I've been making this receipe since 1977, it is easy and a crowd pleaser everytime. You can't go wrong with this meatballs and Heinz Chili Sauce.
I use the currant jelly/chili sauce combo for my Sweet n Sour kielbasa (recipe on this site) I've been making it for YEARS and it's so simple! Can go right in the Crockpot...I love this sauce!
I used Heinz ketchup, chili powder, grape jelly and a bit of bbq sauce. My whole family loved it.
I used frozen meatballs and put everything in my slow cooker on high, about 90 minutes.
Canned sliced pineapples and frozen peppers and onion were sauteed on the side along with instant rice.
This way only the kids that wanted the pepper mixture could add it. Fast and super simple for busy mom weeknight meal.
yum! just what I was looking for!
