I used a teaspoon of chipolte, and a regular can of diced tomatoes. I didn't have whole cloves or cinnamon sticks and used ground instead. About 1 tsp cinnamon and 1/2 tsp cloves. I used three cans of chicken broth because I added extra cabbage and carrots. This is a good soup. My two-year old liked it!

Delicious. I also used ground spices, but it turned out great. It's very hearty and flavorful.

Delicious! I browned the meatballs before adding them, and swapped out a little chipotle chili powder for some of the chili powder. Just the right amount of spice!

this is a great soup...a little time consuming when you use the whole spices but they are essential to the authentic flavor. i had a mexican exchange student staying with me several years back and he thought this was the best sopa de albondigas he ever had. i also add extra broth for extra veggies.
