Homemade Albondigas Recipe

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.

Here’s another quick and easy recipe, that I think would be great to get the kids in the kitchen.  If you thought the kids did great at making their own pizzas……… give this one a try!

I must say, I’ve had some real doozies of mistakes in the kitchen.  However, I’ve been able to pull it all together and make it look like I meant it to turn out that way. 😛  shh – that’s our secret.

Here’s the recipe

Empanadas


Today instead of the same ol’ dinner.  I thought a change would be nice, so I went through my recipe books.  Some are ancient and very brittle, so this turned out to be a very time consuming task.  But none the less, my task yielded us some great results.

In my quest for something different, I came across a recipe that I thought everyone might like to have.

Let’s get cookin

Ground Beef..umm.. Surprise?!


I came across this recipe some time back.  It has no name.  Not that it didn’t when I adopted it, just that it doesn’t now.  The top seems to have well been ripped off. 😐  So my apologies for the “no name” recipe.  That’s why it’s gotten the name Ground Beef… umm.. Surprise?!  If you can come up with a better one, please share your ideas.  We would all love to hear them.

Here’s the recipe with no name..

  • 2 lbs. Lean Ground Beef
  • 1 Onion, chopped
  • 3 tbls. Oil
  • 16 oz. Can Tomatoes
  • 4 tbls. Vinegar
  • 1 to 2 tsps. Cloves
  • 1/2 tsp. Cumin
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 cup Raisins, plumped in
  • 1/2 cup Water or Stock
  • 4 oz. Green Chilis, diced
  • 1 cup Almonds, slivered and blanched

     Brown meat and onion in oil.  Add all the other ingredients except the almonds.  Add enough water or stock to the desired thickness of your liking.  Stir to blend, bring to boil.  Reduce heat and simmer 30-45 minutes.  Stir in almonds and serve while hot.

Makes 4 to 6 servings.

**This freezes well.
