How To Make Albondigas Mexican Soup


  • Ground beef
  • Cilantro
  • Small onion
  • Salt
  • Garlic
  • Onion powder
  • Ground black pepper
  • Chicken broth
  • Carrots
  • Celery
  • Potatoes


  • First, peel all the vegetables after washing them with water. 
  • After this, chop the onion and cilantro finely and mince the garlic with precision. 
  • You need to cut carrots into large pieces. 
  • After that, cut the celery into 1-inch pieces. 
  • Then take the ground beef, finely chopped cilantro and onion, and minced garlic in a mixing bowl. Mix them thoroughly, and next, add salt and onion powder into that. 
  • After that, sprinkle black pepper over the mixture and mix it gently. Black Pepper is a crucial step in the recipe for how to make Albondigas Mexican style. 
  • You have to use this mixture to form meatballs. The size of the meatballs is an essential factor. The ideal size should not be more than a golf ball.
  • Then a large skillet needs to be sprayed in a nonstick pan. Keep the flame medium and heat the meatballs carefully until they become dark brown. 
  • Keep the meatballs aside. Another critical aspect of how to make Mexican Albondigas is that while frying, you should not fully cook the meatball. 
  • You have to complete the rest of the cooking of the meatballs when you put them into the soup. In medium-low heat, cook the rest of the onion for almost ten minutes.
  • Now take a large pot and put the chicken broth into it. Add pieces of carrot, celery, and potatoes that. 
  • Over high heat, put the pan in the oven and pour water into it. Let all the ingredients boil. Reduce the heat after a few minutes and let the soup simmer until the potatoes become soft, which means edible. Boiling will take almost 15 minutes. 
  • After all these ingredients, add the meatballs and the extra cilantro that you have. 
  • To make the ideal Mexican Albondigas soup, keep the soup over heat for another 30 minutes and let it simmer. 
  • Before serving, you can season Albondigas Mexican soup with salt and black pepper. And that’s how to make Albondigas Mexican!
