  These spicy meatballs are a wonderful appetizer and, when served in a
  chafing dish, will hold for a long time. Simple to prepare, they can
  be made ahead of time and reheated before serving.
  To make the sauce, sauté the onion and garlic in the oil until they
  are lightly browned. Add the tomato sauce, broth, and the chipotles
  in adobo sauce. Heat the mixture to just under boiling and simmer for
  20 minutes. Place the sauce in a blender or food processor and puree
  until smooth.
  To make the meatballs, combine the beef, pork, onion, cilantro, bread
  crumbs, egg, and season with salt and pepper. Gently mix, then form
  into small meatballs. Pour a couple of tablespoons of the oil in a
  heavy saucepan and brown the meatballs. Remove and drain.
  Return the sauce to the pan, add the meatballs and simmer for 15 to 20
  minutes to finish cooking the meat.
  To serve: place in a chafing dish, garnish with the cilantro and serve
  accompanied with toothpicks.
  Yield: 8 servings as an appetizer
