Spicy Sweet Mango Meatballs

Some days you don’t feel like doing anything special for dinner. It was one of those nights when I made this & it was thrown together on a whim based on things I had in my house. It turned out so moist, & had a wonderful sweet & tangy flavor! I will be making it again for sure because it is always nice to have a kind of “cheater” or “semi-homemade” dinner every now & then.
