This was good but almost kind of bland and nothing special.

This turned out to be really yummy, thank goodness because it did take a long time to prepare. This is good to make on a Sunday afternoon (start by 4 if you want to eat by 6:30) and have lots of leftovers for the following week, or to freeze. I'll definitely make it again - very good!

I made this soup last night and loved it. I followed the recipe exactly, and thought that there was a bit too much liquid for my liking. I prefer a little thicker soup. But the flavor was excellent and my three-year-old even wolfed it down. We had it again today for lunch and it was even better. Oh, I did not grind up the meat myself - I used some ground chicken and pork that I had bought before, and the meatballs were yummy, though I am sure using pork tenderloin would make it even better.

Really, really good! I made a 1/2 batch, but, next time, I think I'll make the entire thing and maybe freeze the other half. It's a little labor intensive, but well worth it. I served this with the roasted corn and goat cheese quesadillas.

Excellent. I made the full recipe for my husband and I - it was just easier to make a full recipe. I topped it with some fresh avocado and had fresh corn torillas on the side. We had it over a period of a few days and enjoyed it everytime! This will be a regular for us.

WARNING: do not make this recipe unless you have a lot of time on your hands and you own an immersion blender. It was a tasty soup and I'm glad that it made a TON because I'm not going to be making it again any time soon. I should have read more carefully to find out how much time was involved.

A wonderful recipe, full of flavor. Simple to make with a food processor. All I had was a mini-chop version so I had to so it in batches but still worked great. I added some frozen corn, cumin, and chili powder then some extra cilantro at the end. It makes enough to feed a crowd.

This took a lot of work and in the end I didn't like the soup. My pureed mixture was an awful light brown color (not appetizing at all), my meatballs had big chunks of pork in them because I didn't want to over-process the meat and cause it to toughen. Normally I'm willing to see the potential in a recipe, but I just don't see it here.

delicious. I used ground pork and ground white turkey and didn't use a food processor for the meatballs and they turned out great. very flavorful.

I thought it was bland also so I added some red pepper flakes, a few stems of thyme and a splash of red wine to the sauce. The meatballs were tasty but I didn't think they needed 45 mins to cook, especially at that small size. Mine were done in 20 and they were cooked through.
