Mexican Meatball Soup

I made this soup several years ago, we loved it, and I forgot about it. It got buried at the bottom of a pile of recipes, and I just recently found it again. I knew I needed to make it again. This time I tweaked a few things and made it even better.

My husband loves this soup. It is a bit unique, because it is a meatball rice soup, yet it has a Mexican  flavor to it. We like this soup because it is so different from other meatball soups.

My husband likes soups, but he prefers a heartier, more filling soup, and this recipe is just that. This is a  filling and hearty soup.

This recipe also makes quite a bit. It does thicken up the next day, because the rice absorbs some of the liquid, but it is still very good. We can easily get two meals out of this. We eat it for dinner and then lunch the next day.

This soup has quite a few ingredients, but it is not a hard soup to make.

  8. Wow, this is delicious soup! I made this tonight and there isn’t a drop leftover. TFS!

  9. Do you keep it on simmer after adding the meatballs/rice ???

  10. Do you think I could sub oats or another gf flour for the cornmeal in the meatballs? My husband has a corn sensitivity. He doesn’t usually like soup, but I love when I can get some homemade stock into him and I think this might be a soup he’d actually enjoy. 🙂

    • I think either of those would work fine. I would probably try the oats. My husband is picky when it comes to soup too, he like them to be a hearty filling soup, which this one is. So I hope your husband enjoys it.
