Meatballs in Chipotle-Tomato Salsa (Albondigas en Salsa de Chipotle)
This is a spicy, flavor packed dish with delicious meatballs that cook directly in the sauce. Goes great with Arroz de Ajo or over Thin Spaghetti. This is a family favorite. Feel free to adjust the amount of chiles/Adobo sauce to tone down the heat.
