My mom's recipe. The ultimate feel better soup.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine first 8 ingredients in a large bowl. Mix well.
  2. Form small meatball's and boil in large pot of boiling water. Skim off fat as you cook. The meatball's usually take about 30 minutes to cook. Scoop the meatball's out and discard the boiling liquid.
  3. While meatball's are cooking, saute vegetables in your soup pot with a very small amount of oil.
  4. Once the vegetables have softened add the green salsa, tomatoes, and beef stock. Bring to a boil.
  5. Add the cooked meatball's and uncooked rice to the boiling mixture and reduce heat to a simmer.
  6. Add water as needed to keep the right thickness. As the rice cooks, the soup will thicken dramatically. Keep at a simmer for about an hour and a half.
