Mexican meatball soup

Mexican Meatball Soup

Delicious hearty heat…

Mexican meatball soup has that hearty and rustic deliciousness that just puts a smile on near anyone’s face. It’s a meal unto itself, especially when served with tortilla chips or bread. And the spiciness follows through, from meatball to soup base with the ancho pepper powder (or cayenne for those that want spicier) and fresh jalapeño.

Want less of a spicy commitment in your version of a Mexican meatball soup? Halve the amount of fresh jalapeño peppers used. You . can also substitute out the jalapeños for a less spicy chili or even for bell peppers (if no heat is desired.) The ancho and generic chili powders carry little heat. Ancho peppers are very mild (1,000 to 1,500 Scoville heat units compared 2,500 to 8,000 SHU for jalapeños). We recommend keeping them in the recipe even if you’re looking to lessen the heat. They provide more a subtle simmer than any fieriness, and their smoky, Tex-Mex flavors add a lot to the recipe.

Looking for more hearty soups? Check out our collection of 500+ spicy recipes, featuring many fiery options. Try this twist on a traditional – our jalapeño popper chicken soup. Two great tastes and so delicious mixed. Or for something less chunky (but no less fiery or tasty), give this Thai pumpkin soup a taste. It’s not what you expect – think more exotic, fragrant, and sweet.
