  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a baking sheet.
  2. Mix the ground beef, chipotle peppers with the adobo sauce, green onions, bread crumbs, garlic powder, salt, and pepper together in a bowl until evenly mixed. Roll the mixture into balls the size of cherry tomatoes. Arrange on the prepared baking sheet.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until cooked through, about 30 minutes.
  4. While the meatballs bake, bring a large pot of lightly-salted water to a boil. Add the spaghetti and return to a boil. Cook until tender but still firm to the bite, about 12 minutes. Drain.
  5. Pour the spaghetti sauce in a large saucepan over medium heat; cook until hot, 5 to 7 minutes. Add the cooked meatballs and stir to coat. Ladle over the drained spaghetti and top with the grated Parmesan cheese to serve.

Holy Hot! The meatballs were too hot for my husband and I to take (and we like hot food!) and we could not serve it to our young daughters because of that. This recipe has some potential, but...

These meatballs are great! Just what I was hoping for. I did make adjustments, based on taste. I used 1lb of ground beef and only 2 chipotle peppers with about 1tsp of sauce. The hamburgers ...

I like the meatballs toasted with provolone on a sub roll.

Basic meatballs with an extra punch of flavor, very good & spicy smoky flavor. I cut this recipe in half for the ground beef and with about three chipotle peppers which made approx. 20 meatball...

excellent!! my boy friend thought it was a little too spicy, but i thought it was just perfect! i used almost double the sauce tho.

We helped my stepson make this last night and it was very good! Would definitely make this again!

I can't smell or taste much if anything due to a heavy cold, so I was going to let my family rate this. My son thought it was much too spicy (and I reduced the Chipolte by half) and my daughter...

This is great! I use spaghetti squash in place of the pasta as well as ground turkey instead of ground beef to simply lower the calories and fat. I love adding the chipotle peppers to the meat...

This is by far the best meatballs I've had. I did however make some adjustments, I added dried parsley and minced garlic (instead of onion). I will definitely be making these meatballs again.
