Albondigas (Mexican Meatball Soup)

Albondigas also known as Mexican meatball soup around my house, is one of my most favorite things to make. It has all the flavors you would think to find in Mexican food . Some people make this recipe with less broth but I like the soup like feeling it has with all the broth. This would be a fun one to even have the kids help you roll the meatballs. Have fun making it and Enjoy!

1 lb of lean Ground beef
1/4 cup of chopped cilantro 
1/4 cup of chopped onion

8 cups of water
1 can of tomato sauce

Mix all the ingredients up to the eggs, in a medium size bowl. Form meatballs and set aside. Bring water to a boil, add the bouillon cubes. Taste broth to make sure it’s flavorful enough. Add salt and pepper to taste. Pour in the tomato sauce and stir. Drop in the meatballs carefully. Add potatoes if you wish. Bring heat down to medium hot and cook for about 30 minutes. Serve and enjoy with warm tortillas.
