Football season is in full swing around here and my new weekly dilemma is what delicious recipe(s) to whip up for the weekend. Between Pinterest and blogs, I usually have a list about a mile long of things that I am dying to make. However this past weekend, I went off script and decided to make these delicious BBQ Cheddar Jalapeno Meatballs. I used a basic meatball recipe for the base and then spiced things up with jalapenos, cilantro, and some cheddar cheese. When they are finished, toss them in some of your favorite barbecue sauce and they are a delicious treat on their own or stuffed into a sandwich.
