15 Fully Cooked Meatballs, give or take, meat of choice - feel free to experiment. I used turkey but pork is good too, and lamb, beef, or other meat would be yummy too.
1 1/2 Cups Mirepoix
1-2 Chile Poblano or Pasilla, seeded, stemmed and chopped
1/4 Cup Chopped Bacon or Ham
1-2 Gallons Water, a couple cups of broth if you have it on hand
1 Tablespoon Ghee, Butter or Coconut Oil
3-5 Cloves Garlic, sliced thin or minced
1 Teaspoon Cumin
1 Teaspoon Ground Coriander
1 Teaspoon Ground Oregano
Sea Salt and Pepper to taste
Melt ghee in a large stock pot on high (if using butter cook until browned)
Add in Bacon or Ham, reduce heat to medium-high and cook until browned
Add in meatballs, chile and mirepoix.
When meatballs start to brown add in spices, a little sea salt and pepper, stir well
Add in water and broth or stock. Boullion can also be used to taste.
Bring to a boil and allow to boil for 5 minutes before reducing the heat to medium. Simmer covered for at least 20 minutes and enjoy!
If prepping ahead of time I keep this covered until cool to make sure I don't lose the yummy broth through evaporation.
