With a filmography that spans nearly 40 years, Almodo has always been consistent with his memorable, outspoken, and nuanced female leads.
A classic Mexican soup, made with meatballs (albondigas), is a comforting bowl of goodness. The albondigas are made with ground chicken and cooked rice simmered in a broth made with onion, garlic, celery, peas, carrots and tomato sauce and served with plenty of warm corn tortillas and fresh limes wedges.
In a large mixing bowl, add cooked rice, large egg, ground chicken, garlic, cilantro, cumin, salt and pepper. Using hands mix all ingredients until just combined. Roll ground chicken mixture into small meatballs, place on baking sheet and cover with plastic film. Place in fridge until ready to cook.
In a large stock pot or Dutch oven, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the onion, celery and carrots; sauté until the vegetables have softened and are tender. Add garlic, cook an additional minute.
Stir in chicken broth and tomato sauce. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to a simmer. Carefully drop in albondigas, one by one. Cover and simmer. Add frozen peas and allow to simmer more. Serve.
