How to cook Mexican meatball soup

Now you can cook Mexican Meatball Soup in your home?

Meatball Soup is a traditional Mexican soup which known to people as Albording Soup. Meatball is a ball of ground or chopped meat, usually beef, with added seasonings and, for this reason, this recipe called as Meatball Soup.

It is not difficult to make Meatball Soup.

Meatball Soup is a simple soup; if you want to make it just meat, onions, garlic, broth and tomatoes needed. After cooking soup with ground beef or turkey and rice, you just drop the meatball. To make it you can add meat in meatball and soup both. Also, you can add some carrots, green beans and peas to make it delicious.

Use of mint can make the extraordinary taste.

Distinctive is the chopped mint in the meatballs and it create flavor in this soup. It was long since, I met with the Mexican chef and talk about the lack of mint in his recipe of meatball soup. He was surprised to know this and said, “Oho, my mother puts mint in her cook and it was awesome”. It is not essential to use mint in your recipe. I think that, you can try with a little fresh oregano or some cilantro, but the taste will not same.

What can be the mint substitute?

There is no fresh mint in your touch; Herbal mint tea can give you the same quality. You just use a couple of teaspoons of dried mint for it. The vegetables can change depending on your choice. For example, you can try spring peas in their pods instead of shucked peas or you could add some chopped fresh zucchini. I have clear remembered, my mother very often adds a couple of extra tablespoons of chopped mint directly. Ground turkey for the ground beef can be your proxy.
