Not spicy, but good flavor. Will make again.
I actually rated this as a ONE star, but it saved it as a three. Weird. Don't make this. It's a good idea but falls short of expectations. It wasn't spicy. And kind of bland.
We like really spicy food, so I used 3 tsp. of the peppers. We actually found the sauce to be very bland. The meatballs were great, so I'll make this again with some additional spices in the sauce.
I also really like spicy food, but this was just a bit too spicy for me. I did use ground turkey instead of beef chunk so maybe the spice was more intense? Anyway, if I make it again I'd definitely cut down on the chipotle chiles.
My husband and I loved this recipe!! The name doesn't lie... it sure is spicy. I love spicy food, but this was a little too spicy for me. I would only put half the amount of chipotle in and make sure to chop it fine so you don't end up with a mouthful of fire. I would also suggest using diced tomatoes rather than whole, for a smoother sauce. Fantastic recipe...quick and VERY delicious!! Thanks Real Simple!!
These were so simple and wonderful ! I would make the meatballs bigger. Next time, I will cook them right in the sauce, instead of broiling them.
