Speaking of birthdays, people came over to my place this weekend for mine, and I wanted to make a little snack for everyone to eat before we went out. My first idea was meatballs, but when I eat a few of my normal meatballs, I end up with garlic breath and heartburn all night, and I didn’t want that for myself or any of my guests. Instead I whipped up this new spicy variety. Light with chicken and pork instead of beef, less garlic than normal, a little habanero to get the blood flowing, and instead of the heavy red sauce, a simple puree of mango to dip in. They were a big hit, and didn’t bog anyone down for the long night ahead.
