How to make meatballs in a slow cooker

Print this recipe
These spicy chipotle meatballs will knock your socks off! And so easy to make! These are the perfect party snacks for the next birthday, pool party or tailgate. The chipotle chile powder adds a wonderfully smoky flavor with just the right amount of spice. The cilantro cream dipping sauce adds an amazing creamy zip the the meatballs. They are so good that you may just need to make extra for those hungry mouths!
You will first need to mix and form the meatballs. I like to use equal parts ground pork and extra lean ground beef for more depth of flavor. Don't forget the cool and creamy dipping sauce! Sour cream, cilantro, lime juice and cumin make this sauce the perfect compliment to the spicy meatballs. Enjoy!
