Dr Pepper Habanero Meatballs
These aren't your momma's meatballs! Add some heat to your favorite meatball recipe with habanero peppers, toned down by a luscious Dr Pepper glaze.
For the love of your hands (and your eyes), always wear gloves when handling habanero peppers. Additionally you can slather your hands in olive oil prior to cutting so the capsaicin doesn't ruin your day, but ultimately, gloves are the best choice.
If you want to make these an appetizer, you can remove them from the Dutch oven, add toothpicks, and set on a platter.
We added chives for our final presentation, but if you're not a fan, you can sprinkle with parsley.
These pair well with rice and almost any vegetable you can imagine, though we're partial to these green beans because they bake while you have the stovetop rolling.
