    Oh these are so yummy! I’ve made them on several occasions, also froze them, and they always turn out very delicious. My husband can’t handle spicy food all that well, so I only put in about 1/4 to 1/2 a chipotle pepper and that seems to be just enough to get the flavour but not so spicy that he’s in pain for a few days… I usually make my meatballs smaller sized (more sauce coats them this way!). I’ve been using diced fire roasted tomatoes (the only fire roasted kind I can find in my area are diced). I’ve attempted running the tomatoes through my blender a couple times, but I actually like the texture of the diced tomatoes better.

    Question, Elise: Do you know how long the chipotle peppers in adobo would last in the fridge? Seeing as we don’t actually use many in this recipe, there’s quite a few left from the tin that I don’t really want to throw away.

    Elise, you never disappoint with your recipes. I made this dish last night using the adobe sauce and 1 adobe pepper, the spice was just right. I served with tortillas, sour cream and white rice. Very simple and flavorful dish. I am making cashew chicken tomorrow and I can’t wait. Thank you again for your wonderful recipes.

    We made this tonight, it was delicious. I had never used chipotle powder before so only put in 1 tsp, next time I’ll put the two in. Used two chipotle chillis in the sauce but could have stood three. We had it with Mexican rice. I think using my homemade chicken stock in the sauce added to the flavour as well, rather than bought stock.

    I was born and raised in Mexico city, living in Switzerland at the moment and this is what my mexico blues needed. Whenever i end up making meatballs, i make the traditional “Albondigas” meatball soup. But today, i found your recipe and it hit my “Mexican food” crave back in to place. I had also just chipotles brought by my mom from Mexico city so it was meant to be. It was Delicious!!!!! Thank you!
