My nine year old son made this soup for dinner - with supervision of course! It was fantastic served with crusty bread. For those that have never had Albondigas before, I would describe it as a vegetable soup with meatballs and a little kick. A few minor changes were made just to accommodate what we had available. First, he used a quart of low sodium broth in lieu of the water and bouillon cubes called for. Second, I also had him use mild salsa so that it wasn't too spicy. I told him you can add spice but once it's in, you can't take it out. It turned out to be a good call. The heat level was perfect for my five year old and those that wanted more could just add extra salsa in their bowls. And finally, he only used 1 pound of ground beef (same amount of breadcrumbs and milk) because that is what was thawed and it still seemed plentiful.

Mojo Roast Chicken (Pollo Asado)
Really good marinade. I had a busy day planned so I threw all of this in the crockpot without ever marinating it and cooked it on low all day. It was very flavorful. I just shredded up the meat to serve with tortillas and toppings. The only thing I might do a little differently is to put the shredded meat on a baking pan and crisp it up in the oven just a little. It was great this way but I enjoy carnitas this way. I used bonelss chicken thighs (what we had) and avocado oil instead of evoo.

Creamy Hot Cocoa
We don't keep half and half on hand but saw that another reviewer used evaporated milk instead. I had a can of that so I used the entire can and scaled the milk back by 1 cup. As others suggested, I cut the sugar back to 1/2 cup. I made this because my son wanted something warm to soothe his sore throat. This did the trick! This made a generous amount of hot chocolate so the rest is in the crockpot on warm until needed.
