Albondigas Soup

Albondigas Soup I

Albondigas Soup

“A rich, filling version of Mexican meatball soup. I make the meatballs ahead and freeze them to use as needed. Mild or hot salsa may be used; green chili salsa works particularly well!”

Ingredients

  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1/4 pound pork sausage
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 1/2 cup cornmeal
  • 6 (14 ounce) cans beef broth
  • 1 (8 ounce) jar salsa
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 (14.5 ounce) cans peeled and diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup white rice

Directions

  1. Mix together beef broth, salsa, 1 onion, tomatoes, dried basil, oregano, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. (If you use condensed beef broth (e.g., Campbell’s), eliminate the salt in the meatballs and use 5 cans (10.5 ounces each) broth plus one quart water.) Bring to a boil and simmer 20 minutes.
  2. Combine ground chuck, sausage, 1 onion, egg, salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, garlic powder, milk, fresh basil, and cornmeal, and mix well. Form into tiny, bite-size meatballs.
  3. Add meatballs and rice to broth. Simmer, covered, very slowly for 1 to 1 1/2 hours.
