Honey-Chipotle Meatballs

Get inspired with these small bites of delightfulness. Infuse meatballs with Chili’s® signature honey-chipotle flavor by using Chili’s Honey-Chipotle Burger Mix-In Sauce, then cook them with our Honey-Chipotle Sloppy Joe Sauce for double the flavor!



  1. Preheat oven to 375º F. In a medium bowl, mix together ground meat, onion, garlic, Chili’s Honey-Chipotle Burger Mix-In Sauce, salt and pepper until evenly combined. Form into around 16 meatballs, about 1.5” in diameter.
  2. In a large ovenproof skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high. Add meatballs and fully cook until browned on all sides, about 10 to 12 minutes.
  3. Transfer skillet with the meatballs to the oven and bake for 5 minutes. Remove skillet from oven and pour Chili’s Honey-Chipotle Sloppy Joe Sauce over the meatballs. Swirl skillet to coat. Bake for another 5 minutes until liquid is reduced and meatballs are glazed, swirling again halfway through.
    Optional: Serve slightly cooled meatballs on fresh basil leaves or baby spinach. Drizzle with remaining warmed Honey-Chipotle Sauce from the skillet if desired.
