Adding Albondigas to Soup Mixture
While the soup is cooking on medium to low heat you will begin adding in the Albondigas (small meatballs). Take a little bit of the set aside ground beef mixture and one by one start making small meatballs and adding them to the soup. It doesn’t take long for them to cook all the way. Cut zucchini into same small size you did for the carrots and potatoes and add to soup.
Once you see them fully cooked, taste the soup for salt and if it needs more, add some and you should be all set!
Serve with lime and hot sauce, preferably Valentina!
