"The name of this soup sounds like dog food. LOL Originally this recipe was a prize winner at the Missouri State Fair many moons ago. It has stood the test of time and remains a favorite. I have used many different types of ground meat for the meatballs. Beef, chicken, turkey, elk, venison and wild boar. Let your personal taste and budget be your guide for the meat. I hope you enjoy this soup!"

Step 1

Mix all ingredients for the base in a large pot. Bring to boil. Lower heat and simmer while making meatballs. You are going to add the meatballs to this same pot so make sure it is large enough to bring everything to a boil after the meatballs are added.

Step 2

Place all ingredients for meatballs in large bowl. Mix well. Shape mixture into bite sized meatballs. Bring broth back to a full boil. Drop in meatballs one at a time. Bring soup back to a boil to set meatballs. Lower heat and simmer for 30 minutes or until the meatballs are cooked through.

Step 3

Serve with tortilla chips and shredded cheese if you desire.

Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



This was very good. Though I halved recipe as there is only me. for the meat I used 1/4 lb hamburger and 1/4 lb italian sausage. I also usedonly 1/4 of the chili powder instead of 1/2 as I knew it would be too hot for me unless I did. I had to cook the meatballs 10 minutes longer inorder for them to complete cooking. all in all a special recipe I will make again.
