Is everyone as ready for soup season as we are? This recipe for Mexican Meatball Soup is a winner that will be served at our home often during the colder months ahead. It is delicious, comforting and easy to make!
We developed this recipe for the Mushroom Channel using The Blend, along with a healthy dose of cremini mushrooms. That being said it was also tested using white button mushrooms, so if that is your favorite fungi, then substitute them into the recipe.
What is The Blend; well, it is a sneaky little way of substituting some of the meat in your recipe with mushrooms. Bonus for the added health benefits of mushrooms, but for us, we just enjoy the flavor of one of our favorite ingredients added to the mix. Mushrooms are a great ingredient to use when wanting to cut back on the amount of meat in a recipe, and it always amazes me how moist the recipe comes out. The meatballs in this recipe are extra moist and flavorful, that you will not be able to stop at just one; I add three to every bowl! Jalapeños, kidney beans, and corn are an added bonus to making this a big bowl of comfort.
