Turkey Albondigas Soup

January/February 2007

Your rating: None Average: 4.2 (65 votes)

Albondigas, Spanish for “meatballs,” star in the traditional broth-based Mexican soup. Our version uses turkey rather than beef or pork for the meatballs, and we've pumped up the volume of fresh vegetables in the mix.

"We loved this soup. I added ancho and chipotle chili powder to the meatballs, and browned them in a bit of olive oil before adding the other ingredients. "

I used 1/2 a leftover rotisserie chicken to make the stock and threw the leftover meat in. I used some ready made frozen turkey meatballs instead of home made, but also added some fresh diced tomatillos and a can of roman beans. Turned out well- had the leftovers for lunch today. This recipe's a keeper!
