This past Thanksgiving we went to a cousins’ house for a tapas party and I tried my first meatball cooked in grape jelly and chili sauce. I have to say it sounds gross but it was very good. She used a pack of turkey meatballs along with a large jar of grape jelly and chili sauce – you can’t get much easier then that. This recipe is a classic and sure to become an instant party hit.

Recipe for grape jelly meatballs

  • 2 – 12 oz jars Heinz chili sauce
  • 1 – 32 oz jar grape jelly
  • 1 bag small meatballs (large bag of at least 60+ meatballs – can be beef or turkey)
  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper (optional to add a kick)

Put the chili sauce and jelly in a large pot or crock pot. Heat these ingredients until until jelly is melted and sauce is smooth, stirring often. Add frozen meatballs; heat until meatballs are thawed and then simmer for at least 3 hours.
