We got a li’l crazy with these mango-infused meatballs. They require a bit of oven lovin’ before you toss ‘em in the crock pot, but the results are worth the effort. (PROMISE!) Great for parties!

Ingredients

  • 1 lb. raw extra-lean ground beef
  • 1/2 cup finely diced mango
  • 2 tbsp. ketchup
  • 1 tsp. dried minced onion
  • 1/4 tsp. salt

Sauce

  • One 15-oz. can peach slices in juice
  • 1/2 cup sugar-free or low-sugar apricot preserves
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp. Sriracha hot chili sauce

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Spray a large baking sheet with nonstick spray and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine all meatball ingredients. Mix thoroughly with your hands. (Don’t be squeamish — it’s the easiest way!) Form 24 evenly sized meatballs from the mixture and place them evenly on the baking sheet.
  • Bake in the oven until meatballs are just cooked, 8 – 10 minutes. Meanwhile, drain peaches and transfer to a blender or food processor. Pulse until mostly smooth. Transfer to a crock pot. Add all remaining sauce ingredients to the crock pot and mix well.
  • Carefully transfer meatballs to the crock pot. Stir to coat. Cover and cook on low for 3 – 4 hours.
  • Stir well and serve up meatballs with toothpicks and the extra sauce from the crock pot!
