How to make it

  • In a large pot on medium heat add olive oil, chopped onion, minced garlic, saute for 5 minutes, add Mexican tomatoes and a pinch of red pepper flakes if using, cook for 10 minutes. Add 4 cups water (or more, enough to cover meatballs) , heat to boil.
  • Meanwhile, to make the meatballs, in a large bowl, add the turkey, rice, bread crumbs, cumin, garlic powder, onion powder and just a little salt & pepper, mix well. (If meatballs are not staying together, add some more fresh bread crumbs) I usually make them about an inch in diameter. Carefully add meatballs to boiling sauce, turn heat to low and simmer approximately 35-40 minutes.
  • Add chicken broth (you can always add more broth if needed), heat to simmer, add all vegetables except cilantro, simmer for 15-20 minutes, or until vegetables are tender.
  • Top each bowl with a few cilantro leaves (if using). Enjoy!
