¡Arriba, Arriba, Ándale! Join Hipcooks and Let’s go to Mexico and enjoy Albondigas Soup. It’s perfect for Cinco de Mayo. This classic Mexican meatball soup packs so much flavor into one bowl.
Ingredients for Let’s go to Mexico!
This will make a large pot of soup: perfect for eating, sharing, or freezing leftovers.
Peppers: you’ll need 2 bell peppers (1 yellow and 1 orange make for the prettiest combo, but any will work.) Also, you’ll need a chile pepper: a pasilla or poblano is perfect! If you don’t like any spice, use a green bell pepper.
white wine: some for you, some for the soup!
a 14-ounce can of chopped tomatoes, opened and drained over a colander
1-quart chicken stock or Better than Bullion
1 pound ground beef
¼ cup white rice (plain, basmati, or jasmine rice)
1 bunch cilantro
a lime or lemon
staples: olive oil, salt and pepper, Worcestershire sauce, Tabasco or hot sauce, dried oregano or thyme, chili or cayenne pepper
extra bonus points: fresh or dried epazote (an herb found in most Latin markets)
An awesome pot (our favorite is the Le Creuset 4.5 quart soup pot)
a sturdy heat-proof cooking spoon
Microplane or grater
a cutting board and chef’s knife
a small lidded pot
