How to make it

  • Combine the meatball ingredients in a bowl. Using your hands, mix well. Make small (about 1/2 inch) meatballs. Set-aside.
  • If using a crock-pot, combine all the ingredients,except the meatballs and rice. Mix well. (Keep the meatballs and rice in the refrigerator until you are ready to add them. They work best if you can take them out at least 1/2 hour before you need to add them to the soup) Cook on low heat about 8 hours or high heat about 4. If cooking on low, turn to high and drop in the meatballs. Cook about another hour, or until the meatballs are cooked through. Stir in the cooked rice and cook until heated through.
  • If cooking on top of the stove: In a large soup pan, combine all the ingredients except the meatballs and rice. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer for about an hour; add the meatballs, cook about 15 minutes then add the rice. Cook until heated through.
  • Taste and adjust seasonings. Serve in warm bowls; top with chopped cilantro, if desired.
  • These are good with corn muffins or warmed corn or flour tortillas.
