Chipotle Meatballs - El Naranjo Restaurant, Oaxaca, Mexico
35 mins (prep 15, cooking 20)
16 ingredients
6-8 servings
These meatballs are flavored with chipotle chiles and capers. At the restaurant they are served over rice. I prefer serving the meatballs alone as cocktail appetizers. They might also be good used for a meatball sandwich. Published in Bon Appetit, May 2003.
