Just three ingredients are needed for this speedy appetizer from Christine Smoot of Childress, Texas. “These meatballs are so different from all the others…you will never carry any leftovers home,” she assures. “I catered my daughter’s wedding and served them as appetizers.” TIP: “You can also serve over rice for a main dish,” Christine suggests.

"Very easy, very tasty. I doubled the recipe and used frozen meatballs; I mixed the sauces together in a crockpot, stirred in the meatballs and then heated them through while I worked on other appetizers for our New Year's Eve party. Our guests gave this recipe two thumbs up. This recipe is a keeper!!"
