I had most of the ingredients on hand so I decided to make this soup. I was amazed how good this was. Even my husband, who doesn’t think soup is a meal, loved it. For the meatballs I used only beef. I used chopped fresh cilantro, not basil. Instead of the garlic and salt I used Adobo. I don’t keep cornmeal on hand so I used seasoned bread crumbs.
I lightly browned the meatballs, and then added the liquids. I don’t like the taste of canned beef broth so I used chicken. The quality of the salsa is key. I used Goya Salsa Verde. I would not try to use a red salsa in this dish, as the person below stated. Toward the end I added a couple of handfuls of medium egg noodles (Kids prefer noodles over rice). Also I snuck in package of thawed chopped spinach. The soup is so full of flavor the kids didn’t even know. Rich flavorful broth, with tender meatballs this meal is a real winner. A definite must try!
