4 chipotle chiles in adobo, chopped fine
1 small white onion, chopped
5 medium tomatoes, chopped fine
1/4 cup finely chopped carrots
1/4 cup finely chopped celery
1/4 cup finely chopped fresh cilantro
1 cup beef broth
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 pound ground pork
1 pound ground beef
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1/2cup milk
2 eggs
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh cilantro
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Methods/steps

In a saucepan, combine the chipotles, onion, tomatoes, carrots, celery, cilantro, broth, and salt and pepper and cook, uncovered, over medium heat for 10 minutes. Reduce the heat to simmer and cook for 30 minutes.

While the sauce is cooking, combine the remaining ingredients in a bowl, mix well, and fashion into meat balls. Bake the meatballs in the oven for 20 minutes at 350 degrees F. Remove, drain, and add them to the chipotle sauce. Simmer in the sauce for 20 minutes, and serve.

Additional Tips

Here's simple meatballs in a vegetable chipotle sauce that's one of Chuck's favorite smoky dishes. Serve these meat balls with beans, and sliced cucumber.
