I love the holiday season. I love the time with family and friends, the food (like these Spicy Chorizo Balls) and the festivities that go hand in hand with the season. I love the holiday season so much that I’m entertaining the thought of putting up my holiday decorations this weekend. I mean – what better way to get into the holiday spirit than start decorating early – right?

What has been just a thought to me, some grocery stores I frequent, have already put into action. Earlier in September, I walked into a Walmart store to find holiday décor EVERYWHERE!

And, then, The Coca-Cola® Company decided to join them by releasing not one but TWO NEW festive flavors! Now for a VERY LIMITED TIME ONLY, you will be able to find Coca-Cola® Cinnamon & Sprite® Winter Spiced Cranberry on shelves at Walmart stores nationwide!

This year we are hosting a few holiday dinners and I am so excited to add comforting, refreshingly spiced, Coca-Cola® Cinnamon & Sprite® Winter Spiced Cranberry to my drink collection of Diet Coke®, Sprite®, and Coca-Cola® Zero this year.

Enjoying Winter Spiced Cranberry Sprite & Cinnamon Coca Cola For The Holidays

Instead of getting a taste of the season with a festive punch or holiday drink, I am planning on serving chilled Coca-Cola® Cinnamon & Sprite® Winter Spiced Cranberry instead along with some of these taste bud tantalizing, Spicy Chorizo Balls.

To be honest though, I don’t think my daughter and I will be saving our stash of Coca-Cola® Cinnamon & Sprite® Winter Spiced Cranberry for holiday get-togethers only. We couldn’t help but sip on a can each as we contemplated dragging out our holiday decorations and putting them up.

And I know that when holiday cooking, shopping and gift wrapping is in full swing, we might have a can or two of Coca-Cola® Cinnamon & Sprite® Winter Spiced Cranberry tucked into our purses to stop and take a break with.

How to make Spicy Chorizo Balls

Mixing Ingredients Together To Make Chorizo Balls Recipe for the holidays

You will gather the chorizo, onion, cumin, smoked paprika, almond flour, parsley, and garlic as well as some salt and pepper.

Add then simply add all ingredients to a bowl and mix well. You can use your hands (like I did). If you don’t want to get your hands messy, I wouldn’t recommend using a spoon as it wouldn’t do as good a job as your hands would. But, you could put on some disposable gloves and mix this up.

After the meat and spices are well combined, you will break off small bits (about 1 1/2 to 2 tablespoons approx.) and roll them up.

What I love most about your writing is that you're always so 100% genuine about all that you express--I feel excited for the holidays just reading this (and that's saying something since I never think about the holiday season before Halloween!). What a warm, comforting way to enjoy the pre-holiday season!

What a delish looking meatball recipe with a ton of flavor. I actually have 9/10ths of the things needed to make this too. I think I will stop at the market and give this recipe a go for the weekend.
