Recipe: Honey Chipotle Meatballs

Memorial Day is right around the corner, and if you are looking for something fun and unique to serve at your picnic or cookout, I have just the thing!

Not only that, but they are also easy to make, and because I used both ground sirloin and (secret ingredients!) oats and Bush's Honey Chipotle Grillin' Beans, they are an excellent source of protein and fiber as well.

While I do love cool salads in the summertime, I am starting to crave something a little different. So now is the perfect time for my Oven-less Black Jack Tacos (the only cooking required is a quick 1-minute spin the the microwave to melt the cheese).
