Mexican Meatball Soup

Hello fellow mommies! Do you ever just get bored of the same old foods every night.. why not spice it up a little and turned some ground chicken into a Mexican fiesta full of flavour!

What you will need: (soup base)
2 tbsp EVOO
1 green pepper- chopped
1 red pepper- chopped
1 onion- chopped
3 cloves garlic- minced
3 green onions - chopped
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp chili peppers
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp basil
salt and pepper to taste
1 can of diced tomatoes with herbs
4 cups of chicken stock
1 can of chickpeas
3/4 cup of corn
2 tsp green chilies
1 lime
chopped fresh cilantro (1 palm full)

What you will need: (Meatballs)
1 pkg ground chicken or turkey
1 egg
3/4 cup bread crumbs
fresh chopped basil (1 palm full)
1 tbsp garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste

Mix together all ingredients (using your hands is the best way to combine them), then form into 3/4 inch balls, set aside until broth is ready.

Start of by heating a pot on med-high heat with the EVOO. Add in your peppers and onions- cook until translucent. Add in garlic and spices, let cook for about 2 mins.Add in your tomatoes and broth, mix together. Add in the chickpeas, corn and green chilies- bring to a boil. Once boiling add in your meatballs and simmer for about 30 mins.

Once the meatballs are cooked and the flavours have combined squeeze the juice of 1 lime and add in the fresh cilantro (you can omit this part if you do not like cilantro). Enjoy :)
