Homemade Albondigas Recipe

Albondigas roughly translate into Meatball Soup.

Now I can’t tell you how good this is, you’ll just have to trust me and make it for yourself.  The directions are extra simple, and it’s very easy to make.  It is rather spicy, so it’s a welcome treat during the winter months.  You can make this tasty treat as spicy as you like, or as mild as you prefer.  This soup is user-friendly, and adapts well to any taste preference.

Albondigas Soup

  • 1 lb. Lean Ground Beef
  • 6 cups Chicken Stock
  • 1/2 large Onion, minced
  • Garlic Salt (to taste)
  • Parsley, coarsely ground
  • Salt (to taste)
  • Bread Crumbs
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 (16 oz.) can Veg-All Vegetables
  • 1 (16 oz.) can Diced Tomatoes w/green chilies
  • 1 (6 oz.) can Tomato Sauce
  • 1 tbl. Oregano
  • 1 tbl. Cumin

In large mixing bowl, add egg, bread crumbs, and ground beef, mix well.  Make into meatballs (approx. 1″ diam.), and set aside.

In large pot, brown onions and garlic in oil.  (I used olive oil).  Add 2 portion cups of Knorr homestyle chicken stock, add 6 cups water.  Add canned tomatoes, tomato sauce, and vegetables; bring to a boil.  Once you have a rapid boil, add your meatballs.  Drop meatballs into stock, bring back to a rapid boil for 15 minutes.  Reduce heat and simmer for 45 minutes.

Salt and pepper to taste.  Serve with warm tortillas.

** For the chicken stock you can make either homemade, buy it in a can, use bouillon cubes or use the Knorr homestyle concentrated chicken broth packets and 6 cups of water.  This recipe I chose to use the Knorr chicken broth packets and it tasted great!
