Reviews for Cranberry Chili Meatballs
Sort By :
"Made the recipe as is. The sauce tasted like it was made with applesauce instead of cranberry somehow, and the consistency looked like it too. It was OK, but will probably try a new recipe next time"
"Huge hit with my family!"
"I make these for every party, and all you need is the chili sauce and the jellied cranberry sauce. I don't see the need for the extra spices."
"These sweet and tangy meatballs are a big hit at my annual Christmas party. Even people who aren't big fans of the ubiquitous meatball appetizer rave about them. The cranberry definitely makes the difference."
"Don't remember where I've seen this similar recipe before but all it called for was a bag of frozen meat balls, a bottle of chili sauce and a can of cranberries all mixed together in a crock pot."
