Albóndigas

Albóndigas


Albóndigas, Mexican meatball soup, are the perfect pick-me-up meal. Classic comfort food south-of-the-border style. On a gloomy day, mash ground beef, rice, oats and bread crumbs into meatballs and let simmer in a clear vegetable broth. Squeeze in a hint of lime, put on your chanclas (house shoes) and call it a night.
