Football season is upon on us and living rooms across the country are being taken over each Sunday to the sounds of fans rooting for their teams. Even though I’m not a huge fan of football, what I do love are game day traditions and food.

My favorite game day spreads are the ones that feature a variety of easily poppable, bite size appetizers.

Chipotle Mango Meatball Recipe

Ingredients

1 (26 oz) bag pre-cooked/frozen beef meatballs
2c classic barbecue sauce
2 large mangos, peeled, pitted, cubed
1 tsp dried chipotle seasoning

Instructions

Bake meatballs according to directions located on the package.
Combine mango cube, seasoning and bbq sauce in a medium saucepan.
Stir until it’s blended.
Simmer over low heat for 15-20 min. Stir occasionally.
Add cooked meatballs to sauce and simmer for 5-7 min.

Shopping Tip: Don’t judge a mango by it’s color – red doesn’t mean ripe. To check ripeness give the Mango a gentle squeeze. A ripe mango will “give” slightly and a firm mango will ripen at room temperature over a few days.
