I can’t help it. Every time I think of the word “meatball” I picture Adam Sandler and Chris Farley dancing around in my head to the Lunch Lady Song. My Southwest Meatball Soup Recipe (better known as albondigas) makes a fun family dinner and you won’t even have to wear a hair net!
Many of you know that Donna and I are in the middle of developing recipes for a few super secret, 007 type projects that we will be able to announce soon. In the mean time, I have been highlighting some of our recipes that have been shared on our friend’s websites and throwing in a few giveaways just for fun.
Today, because I am sitting at Donna’s house in Utah with actual snowflakes blowing around on her deck, I want to share my Mexican Meatball Soup Recipe that I posted over at Mother’s Niche. I know! Actual snowflakes! It was 101 degrees when I left Phoenix yesterday! So, I guess Fall is not a myth… Fall really does happen!
Just as surprising is my Southwest Meatball Soup Recipe. Everyone has heard about Mexican Tortilla Soup but, very few of my friends have ever tried Albondigas. It’s a great little soup with tiny meatballs, potatoes, carrots… everything you need for a hearty dinner on a cold winter’s night in a healthy, clear broth with a few tortilla chips thrown in just for fun (the tortilla chips are not traditional to this dish).
Head on over to Mother’s Niche and get the recipe and tell Kristina that Sandy sent you!

Smart Touch is the easiest way to open a can, bottle and jar without any mess. Just place on the can, touch the button and away it goes! Manual can openers require twisting and turning, and are almost impossible for people with arthritis and joint pain. With the Smart Touch, twist off even the toughest bottle caps effortlessly, plus the unique handle design gives you all the leverage you’ll need.
Smart Touch opens cans of all sizes and shapes without leaving sharp edges like ordinary can openers. The uniquely designed blade clamps down on the lid from the side, leaving behind a smooth, dull surface. And with its strong magnetic contact point, the lid never falls into the can.
Smart Touch fits easily in any drawer, saving counter space. Plus, it’s easy to clean with its detachable, dishwasher safe blade.
The Precision Pro Food Thermometer allows users to easily grill or roast food to just the right temperature. Simply insert the stainless steel probe into the thickest part of the meat and in 5 seconds or less, the proprietary sensor registers an extremely accurate internal food temperature. The illuminated backlit LCD display is easy to read and the “hold” feature allows you to lock in the current temperature to ensure an accurate reading. This food thermometer comes with a built-in temperature guide right on the casing, so you will always know when your meat is cooked to a safe, proper temperature.
