DIRECTIONS

  • Soak 1 cup pinto beans overnight in 8 cups room-temperature water before starting soup.
  • Add salt, bouillon, chili powder, parsley, garlic and half the chopped onion to beans in water. Cover and simmer for 1-1/2 hours or until beans are tender.
  • Meanwhile, combine meatball ingredients, shape into 1" balls. Saute until brown on all sides. Set aside until beans have finished simmering that first 1-1/2 hours, then add meatballs to soup.
  • If too much of the soup broth has evaporated away, add water at this point, to desired consistency. Then add celery, carrots, tomatoes and remaining chopped onion to soup. Bring to a boil, then turn down, cover and simmer 25 minutes.
  • Add cabbage and simmer 15 minutes.
