albondigas soup recipe filled with meatballs and fresh vegetables

Growing up, my family had a very favorite Mexican restaurant we ate at all. the. time. While the girls ate way too many chips with delicious salsa, my dad and brother would always order Sopa de Albondigas as an appetizer. Albondigas (pronounced All-bone-dig-us) is Spanish for “Meatball Soup” and it is delicious!!!

After ordering it all the time at the restaurant, my dad came up with his own recipe and has now been making it for years. My entire family has fallen in love with this soup- my 11 year old would eat it everyday if he could. Unfortunately for me, he never keeps track of what he is tossing in the pot, so duplicating his version is not going to happen. I did, however, find a very tasty version and then I simplified it. So while my dad slaves away at the stock pot all afternoon, I can toss mine in the crock pot and still get the same delicious flavors. Here is how to make it:

How To Make Albondigas Soup

After a long day, I am all about making things easier when it comes to dinner prep.  In the albondigas recipe below I suggest using frozen meatballs because it’s easier.  If you want to spoil yourself, I would suggest making these Homemade Meatballs ahead of time and using them instead of the frozen ones.
