  1. Place the meatballs into a slow cooker. In a bowl, mash the cranberry sauce roughly, and mix with the pineapple chunks, brown sugar, and chipotle chile. Pour the sauce over the meatballs, and stir to combine. Cover the cooker, set to Low setting, and cook until the sauce is thickened and the meatballs have absorbed the sauce flavors, 4 to 5 hours. Serve with toothpicks.

I made these for Christmas and New Years, and it turned out to be a hit! I used mandarian oranges instead of pineapples because my father's allergic. The chipotle chile in adobo sauce is very spicy. I only used half the can in a doubled recipe. If they sit over night they will be more spicy....

Please keep in mind that the recipe calls for one chile, not one can of chiles. It is very important to remember if you want to keep your mouth intact and your head from exploding.

Delicious! I had to use up some meatball mix so I used fresh meatballs. I also only used half adobo and half Sweet baby Rays bbq sauce since I cant handle spicy very well. So good. Added to the list of favorites!
