This soup was, well, fun to make. I definitely wouldn’t want to tackle this on a weeknight, but it made for a fun Sunday afternoon. Did you know I’ve never made meatballs before? This was my first time. Aren’t they cute?
To start – some prep work:
- Broil bell pepper, jalapeños, corn
- Chop veggies – carrot, onion, red potatoes
- Make meatballs with ground sirloin, seasonings, and minced chipotle in adobo sauce
- Prep tortilla strips for broiling – this was a fail, because I ended up burning them and using chips instead
Meatballs! Spicy, smoky chipotle-seasoned meatballs, searing:
Yummy soup! This recipe took many steps, but it was absolutely packed with flavor. Broiled, charred veggies and chipotle in adobo sauce added a smoky flavor; jalapenos added a moderate heat; a variety of vegetables added texture and color; and the meatballs, of course, we the star! Delicious savory bites of goodness.
A sprinkling of cilantro and pepper jack cheese took this soup over the top.
My rating: 8.2/10
Tonight I finished watching the movie Magnolia. Have you seen it? That ish is HEAVY, dudes. I’m still processing.
Currently listening to: In The Waiting Line – Zero 7.
This song came on Pandora just now, and it’s from one of my verrry favorite movies, Garden State. Shoot, I love that movie. The scene by the fireplace. ..Ooh. The scene with the rain pouring in front of the excavated pit? Swoon. Gotta watch it soon.
