Mexican Meatball Soup

Comforting dinner for the whole family, this Mexican Meatball Soup is easy and has all the qualities of a crowd-pleaser. Full-sized meatballs made from ground beef are simmered in a savory roasted tomato broth for an easy and delicious winter soup. Serve with rice or beans and warm corn tortillas for an authentic Mexican dinner. 

This recipe is quick, easy, and so delicious. Start by roasting the tomatoes, onion, and garlic on a hot griddle. Once the veggies are roasted, place them in a blender and purée until smooth. Add the puréed tomato mixture to a hot saucepan and bring it to a boil. In the meantime, prepare the meatballs. I like to keep the add-ins for the meatballs simple. Garlic, black pepper, a slice of white bread soaked in milk, and egg. Roll the meatballs and carefully drop them into the simmering tomato broth. Once the meatballs are almost cooked, stir in the chopped cilantro. Serve and enjoy! 

To make the Mexican Meatball Soup, you will need the following ingredients:
