Recipe Tips


Heat oven to 400°F.


Reserve 1/2 cup cracker crumbs, half the peppers and 1 Tbsp. adobe sauce for later use. Mix remaining cracker crumbs, peppers and adobe sauce with meatloaf mix, cheese, eggs, parsley and garlic just until blended.


Shape into 48 meatballs, using about 1 Tbsp, meat mixture for each meatball. Roll, 1 at a time, in reserved cracker crumbs until evenly coated. Place on foil-covered rimmed baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray.


Bake 20 min. or until done (160°F). Meanwhile, mix mayonnaise with reserved peppers and adobo sauce until blended.


Serve meatballs with mayonnaise mixture.
