No recipe image available.An easy Mexican-seasoned ground beef meatball soup in a simple salsa and tomato broth with sliced zucchini.

Recipe Ingredients:

1 pound lean ground beef
1 (16-ounce) can stewed tomatoes, broken up
1 (13.75-ounce) can ready-to-serve beef broth
1/2 cup ORTEGA Salsa - Homestyle Recipe
3/4 teaspoon ground coriander
3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 medium zucchini, thinly sliced

Cooking Directions:

  1. Heat tomatoes, broth and salsa to a boil in large saucepan over high heat. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, 25 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, combine ground beef with coriander, cumin, and salt, mixing lightly but thoroughly. Pinch off 1-inch pieces of beef mixture to make about 32 free-form meatballs; cook in heavy nonstick skillet over medium-heat, shaking pan occasionally to brown meatballs evenly.
  3. As meatballs are browned, add to tomato mixture. Add zucchini during last 10 minutes of cooking time. Garnish with chopped fresh cilantro and serve with corn bread, if desired.

Makes 4 servings.
