Meatball Soup Albondigas

Meatball Soup, also known as Albondigas, is a tasty and hearty meal idea, warming and filling with a little bit of heat. It is a great way to use ground beef, and you can also use ground turkey or chicken if you prefer. I have many memories of eating this since early childhood, at my grandmother’s home.

Meatball Soup with homemade meatballs, tomatoes and spices is comfort food at its best.

First you need to prepare the meatballs, which can be made ahead of time and frozen. If you want to know how to make meatballs, I have included my recipe here.
