    Yummy but needed more salt. I didn’t serve with rice but will next time.

    I appreciate all the vegetables in this dish. Prepping took a total of 30 minutes and it came out delicious. I didn’t use low sodium instead use organic chicken stock and it was perfect to taste.

    Probably just me, but I found it to be okay but not quite what I expected. Still it is definitely worth the effort.

    Excellent. I was hesitant to try it with mint, but it was a great blend of flavors.

    Amazing but definitely don’t put the onions in for 8 mins, I’d do 4 max. Double all the spices and add cayenne pepper, Cajun spice and paprika to the meatballs. You also need way more salt in the soup (like triple)

    I liked this soup. It is a lot lighter than I thought it would be so I think I will add this into the rotation in the summer. And I loved the mint in the meatballs. Delish.

    The soup was delicious I didn’t have carrots or parsley, so I swapped for cilantro and extra celery. Very easy and pretty quick. Will definitely make it again!

    I had never had Mexican Meatball soup before this and I am a life long fan now.

    This soup is delicious and light. However, I feel like it lacks seasoning. The meatballs taste absolutely delicious but the soup itself doesn’t feel up to par imo.

    Amazing!! Loved the ingredients and method of frying the veggies and albondigas. Will be making again!

    Made it! It was delicious. Used cumin and adobo since I ran out of chili seasoning. And threw in some leftover corn on the cob from previous night.
