I’ve been rather…uncreative with dinner lately. The girls wanted spaghetti and meatballs for dinner tonight, but since Jorge is low-carbing again I had to make something different for us. In light of Taco Tuesday, and having meatballs and veggies on hand, I threw together the easiest soup, ever! The beauty of this recipe is that you can coarsely chop your veggies and just toss everything in a pot of broth! I, of course, was missing a few ingredients since this was an impromptu recipe, but I’ll write it up the way it should be 😉 .
1 48 oz. carton of chicken broth
1/2 an onion, chopped
1/2 a green pepper, chopped
1/2 a tomato, chopped
2 stalks of celery, chopped
1 cup of frozen broccoli (this one’s optional; I tossed some in!)
1 cup (or 1/2 a 15 oz. can) of crushed tomatoes
meatballs (I like H-E-B meatballs or you can use this receipe
1 tblsp. Chobani Meze Dip Chili Lime flavor (optional)
a few dashes of sea salt
a few dashes of pepper
1 whole Haas avocado, sliced
Bake your meatballs while you put the carton of chicken broth to boil. Chop up your veggies and toss the veggies and frozen broccoli into the pot (remember, broccoli is optional; I put it in for more texture). Add your crushed tomatoes and lower heat to a simmer once the veggies are soft. Toss your cooked meatballs into the mixture and stir in the Chobani dip (this is optional as well; it gave it a good kick and slight creaminess).
Toss in a few dashes of freshly cracked sea salt and pepper. Ladle into bowls and top with avocado, cilantro and queso freso. Obviously, I was missing the queso fresco and cilantro, but you’re welcome.
