We love meatballs and we love spice. Inspired by a classic Mexican soup made with meatballs, called albondigas, we created a super spicy meatball soup recipe. You only have to use one pan, so you can cook a great meal without loads of dishes to clean afterwards.
Make this recipe as spicy as you would like by choosing how much red pepper to include. If you love veggies, feel free to experiment by adding other vegetables to the pot. This has a great soup base that will support all kinds of combinations!
This delicious soup was a major hit in our test kitchen. Cheryl scooped out the meatballs and ate them over steamed rice while others slurped the spicy broth!
Serve this soup recipe in a fancy homemade bread bowl!
