How to make it

  • Meatball Soup:
  • preheat pot on medium high fire, drizzle the bottom of the pot with oil
  • when oil is hot, add onion and stewed tomatoes. sauté the onion and tomatoes for 15 min or until the onions are brown.
  • add warm water to the pot (half way) and put on high flame until boil
  • while waiting for water to boil, put ground beef into big mixing bowl, add your seasonings and(uncooked) rice. be sure to mix well.
  • start rolling in your palm the meat (its up to you how big you want your meatballs) but I use about 3 tbs spoons of meat and roll them into balls.
  • once your water start boiling, carefully add your meatballs and cook for 45 min.
  • once meatballs are done cooking add your veggies (carefully) and lower the flame to medium low and cook soup for about 1 hr or until the veggies are soft..
  • Mexican red rice:
  • in a medium pot, preheat on a medium high flame and drizzle the bottom of pot with oil
  • when oil is hot add onion and rice. sauté the onion and rice until both are brown (usually takes 15-20 mins)
  • lower flame to a medium low and add hot water, tomato sauce, and all the seasonings.
  • bring to a boil and then put on low flame and cover and cook until there is no liquid and the rice is firm and dry.
  • when rice is done you can put rice on top of soup or eat on the side. Enjoy!

    Thank you for this recipe! I've made Albondigas before, but this was by far the best! I made a few changes, like turkey meat instead of beef, half the oil (no need for all that oil), half water and half chicken broth, an 8 oz can of El Pato Tomato Sauce (oooh spicy) and lastly, I added dried Mexican Oregano to the broth and it gave it an amazing flavor. Mom suggested I add oatmeal to the meat next time, so I'm going to try it. Guess what's for dinner tonight? :0)
