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. If you have ever wondered how to make meatball soup, I have a recipe for you. I have many memories of eating this since early childhood, at my grandmother’s home.
