Spicy Meatballs

Granted, all meatballs have their own wonderful qualities, but spicy meatballs can add an element of flavorful pizazz and festive appeal. The great thing about making your own homemade spicy meatballs is that you have total control over how much
spice you add to the meat mixture. The spicy meatball recipes offered on this page come with a nice balance of spice. However, if you prefer meatballs with only a little spice, you can simply reduce the spicy ingredients (such as cayenne pepper, black pepper, hot sauce, etc.) to your own preference. These recipes haven't been tested with additional spice, so if you're a hard core spice lover, you'll have to add additional spice at your own risk! Sometimes the meatballs themselves are made with spicy ingredients, and sometimes sauces or glazes can lean on the spicy side. Some meatball recipes have both spicy meatballs with accompanying spicy glazes or sauces, while still maintaining a nice balance that pleases most palates. Below you'll find a few spicy meatball recipes that come in the form of meatballs and soups with meatballs. Stay tuned for more spicy meatball recipes to come!
