Are you looking for a great party appetizer recipe? The Ultimate Party Meatballs are so simple to make with just 3 ingredients!! Heinz Chili Sauce, a bag of Johnsonville Classic Italian Meatballs and one can of Ocean Spray Jellied Cranberry Sauce.

 To make this sauce, you mix one bottle of Heinz Chili Sauce and one can of Ocean Spray Cranberry Jelly into a saucepan. Heat together until mixed well and add in your precooked meatballs. Simple as that!! Serve on a tray with toothpicks and you have your party o'dourves.
(It can also be cooked in your slow cooker!)

You could also make your own ground beef, turkey, pork, or sausage meatballs as a substitute! 
This would be great for game days, movie nights, get-togethers, and more!!

My opinion: The Chili sauce itself tastes more like ketchup so if you like your food with a little kick, add some special spice to it. They suggest 1tsp of Cumin and 1/4tsp of Cayenne to spice it up. I didn't try this, though next time around I will be! My son, who hates spicy food said "It tastes like ketchup. It just needs hot sauce and it'd be better." lol...and my husband said it tasted like ketchup too. I think it was a bit too tangy and really needed some spice. I think it would have been great with Water Chestnuts stacked on top of the meatball! Another tip I will try next time!

 You can find these ingredients in most grocery stores.
Heinz Chili Sauce is around $2.39 for a 12oz glass bottle.
Ocean Spray Jellied Cranberry Sauce is around $1.40 for a 14oz can.
Johnsonville Classic Italian Meatballs are around $7.99 for a 24oz bag.
