  1. Prepare grill to medium heat. In large bowl, combine first 6 ingredients. Form into 18 large meatballs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbelievable!! WOW! I was hesitant to try this at first. Orange Chile sauce sounded too hot. But I am so glad I tried it! My kids LOVED this! I cooked it stove top and added a little Pineapple juice. This had become a new favorite in our home!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from First time having a grilled meatball! This was our first tine having grilled meatballs and we will do them again. The sauce has a kick to it so moderate the amount of you don’t like a spicy dish. We actually tried a few different sauces on the kabobs- so this recipe would work with other sauces too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from That's a Spicy Meatball! I was surprised at the amount of heat the Orange Chile Sauce; but when paired with the pineapple, red & green peppers, meatballs, and rice that flavor blended beautifully and the hint of citrus was much more evident. This is a recipe we will definitely enjoy again.
