“A rich, filling version of Mexican meatball soup. I make the meatballs ahead and freeze them to use as needed. Mild or hot salsa may be used; green chili salsa works particularly well!”

Directions

  1. Mix together beef broth, salsa, 1 onion, tomatoes, dried basil, oregano, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. (If you use condensed beef broth (e.g., Campbell's), eliminate the salt in the meatballs and use 5 cans (10.5 ounces each) broth plus one quart water.) Bring to a boil and simmer 20 minutes.
  2. Combine ground chuck, sausage, 1 onion, egg, salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, garlic powder, milk, fresh basil, and cornmeal, and mix well. Form into tiny, bite-size meatballs.
  3. Add meatballs and rice to broth. Simmer, covered, very slowly for 1 to 1 1/2 hours.

Tip for making meatballs: roll meat mixture out like a snake, and cut off same sized pieces. Use a colander to roll meat pieces around, this will make them round. Perfect, same-sized meatballs everytime!

The secret of this soup is GREEN CHILE SALSA which was in the original recipe I used in 2002 from this site. This has been rewriten and changed to just salsa. Be sure to use the green salsa. It makes this soup. (My original review follows) --- This wonderful soup was good to the last drop. I served it to 9 people the first time I made it and everyone asked for the recipe. Will make this again real soon!

There seems to be a little confusion over the term "green chili salsa." When I submiatted the recipe, I used the term to mean salsa made with green chilis like Anaheims or jalapenos, not red chilis. I use Pace salsa, mild or medium, or a similar brand. Hope this helps, Kathy
