How to make Mexican meatball soup in 30 minutes:

Heat the olive oil on medium heat in a large stock pot.  Add the onions and carrots and cook for 7-10 minutes until they are soft.

Add in all the other ingredients except for the zucchini.  Stir to combine.

Bring the pot to a boil then reduce the heat to medium. Simmer uncovered for 15-20 minutes until the meatballs are cooked through and the veggies are the tenderness that you prefer.

Add in the zucchini and then simmer for an additional 5 minutes. Serve topped with the chopped cilantro and enjoy!

You can also serve with corn tortillas and fresh lime juice.

Time saving tip:

We keep diced onion and bell pepper in the freezer so it is easy to add to any recipe we like. Another time saving tip is to use a small food chopper or food processor to quickly and easily chop the onions.

If you do not have one of these, I highly recommend them. They are such a time saver and you can get the veggies really fine if you have children that are picky.

I usually just chop the entire vegetable and freeze what I don’t need. It’s so nice to be able to just take the diced onion out of the freezer for recipes.

This is how I meal prep. It’s so quick and easy and helps get dinner on the table fast.

Learn and  how to freeze onions and also how to freeze peppers to save so much time in the kitchen!

Not only is it quick and easy to make but this soup is frugal too.

We love simple recipes like this. I keep recipes like this on the regular menu plan rotation because I know the entire family will enjoy these meals.

In fact, I cut our grocery bill by 50% off by following these 8 Tips for for Saving Money on Groceries by Menu Planning! Save that money for a family vacation or maybe just some wiggle room in the budget.

I often just use what I have in the freezer or what is on sale at the grocery store. You can also use ground beef or ground turkey instead of meatballs.

Another idea it to add more tomatoes to stretch the meat. This is a great recipe to add more tomatoes or tomato sauce and corn to and it will make your soup go further.

This is how I keep our grocery budget reasonable. By shopping when things are on sale I save money on groceries and it really helps our budget
