I love making lean turkey meatballs and I also love hot, hearty Mexican inspired soups. When I was stumped on what to make this week, I came up with the idea of putting them together into one incredible and comforting one pot dish! This Mexican turkey meatball soup was absolutely packed with flavor, lean protein and veggies to make a hearty meal in a bowl. It was just the ticket on a super chilly night here in New Jersey. First, I made the meatballs.
It smelled so amazing as it cooked that I was practically salivating. When Marc came home he said he could smell it from the driveway! The meatballs and the soup base ended up in this gorgeous symbiotic relationship where the meatballs absorbed so much flavor from the liquid and the liquid absorbed so much flavor from the meatballs. When it was done I just scooped it into big bowls and garnished it with sliced avocado for a creamy addition, crispy tortilla strips for some crunch and a sprig of cilantro for pretty green. Then I served it piping hot! Let me tell you, this Mexican turkey meatball soup was glorious. It wasn’t spicy, there was just this slow warmth that crept up on me and comforted my soul. Enjoy the hearty goodness friends, the handy printable is just below!
