Meatballs in a Cherry BBQ Sauce

 This is a very quick, easy and tasty appetizer which I made for the event.

 Pour a bottle (28 oz. ) of BBQ sauce into a pot.  Add 1 jar of cherry preserves.

 Add 3 diced chipotle peppers.

 Add 1 tablespoon of the adobo sauce from the can.  Whisk this until combined. Bring it to a boil until the preserves melt then add the meatballs.

You can make your own meatballs or buy them.  I used frozen meatballs because I needed almost 300.
Mix them with the sauce and bake covered at 225 for several hours.  Stir occasionally.
Serve 1 meatball in a small bowl with some of the cucumbers from yesterday.  Make sure to prepare extra because they will disappear quickly.
