Pork & Bison Meatballs with Cranberry Chipotle Ketchup

These bite-sized morsels are so tender and flavorful right out of the oven, but the Cranberry Chipotle Ketchup takes them to another level! Sweet, tart, smokey and sublimely spicy- munching these meatballs may become a new family tradition! The meatballs can be frozen at least 3 weeks beforehand. Just form them into balls on a parchment lined baking sheet and freeze until set, then transfer them to a sealable freezer bag and keep frozen until ready to bake. If baking from frozen add 15 minutes to the baking time.

Cranberry Chipotle Ketchup makes about a cup


  • 1 cup prepared Cranberry Sauce
  • 1 Chipotle Pepper in Adobo Sauce, finely chopped (about 2-3 Tbsp depending on your heat tolerance)
  • 2 Tbsp Balsamic Vinegar
  • Pinch Sea Salt


  1. Stir all ingredients together in a small saucepan over medium heat until heated through. 
  2. Puree ketchup in a blender until smooth.
  3. Pour into a serving bowl and keep warm until meatballs are ready.
