These two soups are good. I especially like the Albondigas Soup. Albondigas Soup

  1. Mix together beef broth, salsa, 1 onion, tomatoes, dried basil, oregano, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.

  4. Form into tiny, bite-size meatballs.
  5. Add meatballs and rice to broth.
  6. Simmer, covered, very slowly for 1 to 1 1/2 hours.
  7. Makes 8 -10 servings

We love this soup. I usually quadruple the meatball ingredients to freeze the meatballs for later. (roll the meatballs and place on a cookie sheet in freezer - when frozen, pop them into a freezer bag). A tip: make sure to use long grain rice. I made once with short grain rice and it absorbed all the liquid and became mush instead of soup.

Very tasty soup! Green Chili Salsa is very difficult to come by here, so I used some of my own homemade salsa, and I added about 1/4 cup of fresh cilantro. This makes at least 10 servings! Yum! Thanks Tonkcats!
