Best Albondigas Soup

Best Albondigas Soup created by DianaEatingRichly

This albondigas soup recipe was given to me from my mother-in-law. It's definitely one my favorite soups. Honestly, it's better than most restaurants that I've tried.

ingredients

directions

  • Make the meatballs first: Combine everything and mix thoroughly.
  • Form meatballs and roll between your palms (Otherwise, meatballs will fall apart in the soup).
  • You should make around 20 to 24 meatballs, set aside.
  • Combine chicken broth, onion, celery, tomatoes and their liquid, cumin, oregano and cilantro leaves in a large pot.
  • Bring to boil, and reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes.
  • Drop meatballs in the soup (Make sure the soup is slightly boiling, the meatballs need to be cooked quickly).
  • Return to simmer and cook another 10 minutes.
  • Add zucchini and cook 10 minutes.
  • Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  • You could top the soup with cooked rice, or just by itself.

    I love this recipe and so does my entire family; including my 8 yr old grandson. I have been making it for years—I printed out the recipe (Date on the page says Dec, 2010) but I decided to go online and find the original since the paper is getting very tattered. I use Trader Joes Soyrizo and ground turkey instead of beef. The meatballs are delicious.

    Excellent recipe, thanks for sharing. I did add potato and carrot, but the broth was per the recipe and the flavor was perfect. The meatballs were a little bland for my taste, but that was not the fault of the recipe, probably just the brand of chorizo I used.

    This is one of my go to recipes and have been making it for years. I had it for the first time in Arizona and then found this shortly there after. I sometimes put in the little red potatoes or some rice (at the very end of the process for the rice, do not want to over cook).

    Really good recipe, tasted authentic. It was just a little too greasy & spicy than I’d of liked it to be (because of the chorizo). I followed the recipe to the T, but added potatoes. This recipe is a keeper however next time I make I’ll use 3 to 1 ratio of the beef vs the chorizo instead of 50/50 as the recipe calls for. And if you potatoes in your soup add them with the zucchini to prevent them from over cooking.
