Looks like a nice change of cocktail meatballs. I like the idea of jalapenos!

I love the little know fact at the end. Seriously, the recipes looks simply and tasteful not to mention healthy. I will be adding this to my family's dinner menu. My red meat and potatoes family will eat this in silence, since they'll only have time for stuffing their faces.


I bake my meatballs... gets all the "sides" browned evenly & less fat.. why not seasoned breadcrumbs?
