What sauce would go best with sweet and spicy meatballs?

This is for my housewarming. Was going to use marinara but want something different.

This is going to sound weird but... One part grape jelly, two parts chili sauce or ketchup. Add a little mustard or Worcestershire sauce to taste and bring to a simmer. Throw in your meatballs, let them keep simmering 20-30 minutes, and you're good to go. For an actual recipe, just search "grape jelly meatballs."

Thank you! Should I thin it out with broth or anything?

That won't be necessary. By all means experiment with the recipe though if you have the time - I've mixed ginger or garlic into mine, a small splash of red wine, a drizzle of balsamic... It's more versatile than it sounds from the unique ingredients. :)
