Albóndigas is the Spanish word for meatballs and this spiced up Mexican version is cooked in a rich tomato salsa. They're good simply eaten with rice and beans, or even better stuffed inside bread rolls with plenty of the sauce and extra cheese to make a Mexican sandwich known as torta de albóndigas!

Levi enjoyed his Granny's Albondigas very much. He finished the Arroz Verde before the photo' could be taken. I have to admit I was stunned by both dishes too.

Oh so cute! A tiny Taco Legend in the making (and great to hear that you loved it too of course)!
