<firstname.lastname@example.org> Its snowing here in lovely sarcasm rears its
ugly head Michigan, and I decided something warm is definitely in
order. So, here goes something my mom used to make.. Albondigas: Soak
bread in water, squeeze it dry, and mix with meat, egg, and
seasonings. Shape meat into walnut-sized balls. Brown onion in 2T fat.
Remove onion and reserve. Brown meatballs. After meat has browned,
add reserved onion, tomato, more spices as above and cilantro to
taste, and 4-6C boiling water. Simmer slowly for 1 1/2 hours. For
Soup: Mash tomato through a sieve or in a blender. Bring to a boil in
a large pan, adding enough water to make 2 quarts of liquid. Add chile
pulp, salt and oregano. Boil down to about 3 pints liquid. Add
albondigas, and simmer for about 1 hour. NOTE: we like anchos for
this, but pasilla or other dried pepper soaked in hot (not boiling)
water for about 30 minutes would work well. Discard water, and process
till you get a nice paste. Any leftover can be frozen for later use.
