Interesting recipe. For sure needs more salt than called for...a little bland. It was very mild on the spicy scale. I am a little leary of cooking raw meat in the sauce and using the sauce afterwards...good flavor all in all. Fun recipe to make. You need to have lots of prep time though.

These had very nice flavor but were a little hard to work with and the texture of the meatball was not what I'm used to. It may have been the pork, since I have not previously made meatballs with anything but beef. The meat mix was very wet and loose and the sauce was very thin. Regardless, I was able to carefully form the balls and they cooked fine in the sauce without breaking apart. I am not sure they would have handled stacking and stirring so I only had room to cook half in a single layer. I baked the rest of the meatballs. The puree that mixes in with the meat has a pretty nice flavor that might do well in other dishes(minus the egg). I found this to be on the mild to medium heat side so I wouldn't shy away from the chipotles. Half a batch made forty meatballs.
