  • Summary

    This albondigas soup recipe was given to me from my mother-in-law. It's definitely one my favorite soups. Honestly, it's better than most restaurants that I've tried.

    Ingredients

    • 1/2 lb lean ground beef
    • 1/2 lb chorizo sausage, casing removed (not the fully cooked kind)
    • 1 egg, beaten
    • 2 garlic cloves, minced
    • 1/2 carrot, minced
    • 1/2 cup cooked rice
    • 1/2 cup cilantro leaf, chopped
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
    • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
    • 6 cups chicken broth (I usually use nonfat and low sodium)
    • 1/2 cup onion, chopped
    • 3 stalks celery, cut in chunks
    • 1 (16 ounce) can diced tomatoes (with nothing added)
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
    • 1 teaspoon oregano
    • 1/2 cup cilantro
    • 1 large zucchini, sliced
    • salt
    • pepper
