oye como va

i do love to cook Mexican food. we had some veggies from the angel food veggie box this month and we had to find something to do with it. i have wanted to try my hand at albondigas for some time now, and this was the perfect opportunity to do it. recipe is below the picture.
(meatball soup)
1 lb. lean ground round steak, i just used hamburger
6 green onions, sliced in 1/8 inch pieces
1 tsp garlic pepper
1/2 tsp crushed red peppers, from jar
1/2 tsp ground allspice
3 cans (10 oz size) beef consomme
2 medium tomatoes, diced
2 medium zucchinis, diced
1 c chopped cabbage
2 ears corn, cut into 1/4 inch pieces
in large mixing bowl, combine ground round steak, onions, garlic pepper, red peppers, and allspice. form into balls about 1 inch diameter. empty consomme into large saucepan or dutch oven and heat to the boiling point. gently place meatballs, one at a time, into the boiling consomme. add tomatoes, zucchini, cabbage and corn. reduce heat and simmer gently, uncovered, for 45 minutes.
this stuff was so good, and it was really filling. q loved his bowl of soup.

i got lazy and cut a step out of the gorditas, so they didn't puff like they should. so instead of filling them, we covered them. they were fabulous.
