You didn't think I'd throw a tapas party and not make meatballs, did you? And like all my "User Friendly" meatball recipes, this is super easy, thanks to a stash of meatballs in your freezer. This recipe was tested in a Crockette, but you could easily use a larger crockpot. This is a tapa, so 4 meal sized servings of meatballs turns into 8 appetizer sized servings. Of course if you want to do this for dinner, just add some rice or pasta.
