Sopita Con Albondigas


For the meatballs

300 grams of ground beef

1/4 Cup of coconut flour

1 teaspoon ofdried herbs (oregano, thyme, basil)

3 tablespoons of Manchego cheese

1 pinch of salt

1 pinch of ground black pepper

For soup


Chicken bone broth

olive oil

chopped green chile



muenster cheese


Mix all the ingredients in a bowl until combined, form marble-sized meatballs and set aside.

Heat the oil in a pot and brown the meatballs on all sides.

Toast/brown your macaroni in oil or butter. Toasting helps the macaroni hold up to the sauce and brings out a nice flavor in the pasta.

Today I used chicken bone broth but I often use vegetable stock.

Once pasta are brown to your liking add your broth, meatballs and bring to boil then reduce and simmer 10 minutes.

I love to add chopped green chile with a little minced onion and garlic during the last 5 minutes.

Right before serving drop in your “cheese bombs” I used cheddar today for those random delicious melted cheese treats throughout your bowl
