      This was a big hit with my family. I used a little less broth, a few more meatballs, and a bit more corn. I also added generous shakes of chili powder, cumin, and ground oregano. Also about a tablespoon or so of bottled Mexican hot sauce. The result was very good. We ate it with rice. Next time I might add some cilantro and fresh lime juice at the end to brighten the flavor even more.

      Such an easy soup! I used homemade meatballs from the freezer. And I added some torn up corn tortillas to thicken it a bit. Yummy! I will make again!

      Wow! So good. Used half the beef broth, only because I wanted it to be thicker. Served over rice. DH said this is a keeper. Thanks for posting!
