Heat oven to 400°F.

Reserve 1/2 cup cracker crumbs, half the peppers and 1 Tbsp. adobe sauce. Mix remaining cracker crumbs, peppers and adobe sauce with meat, cheese, eggs, parsley and garlic just until blended.

Shape into 48 meatballs, using 1 Tbsp, for each. Roll, 1 at a time, in reserved cracker crumbs until evenly coated. Place on foil-covered rimmed baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray.

Bake 20 min. or until done (160°F). Meanwhile, mix remaining peppers and adobe sauce with mayonnaise and salt.

Serve meatballs with sauce.

When ready to serve, place meatballs on prepared baking sheet and bake as directed, increasing the baking time if necessary until meatballs are done.
