How to Make It

Step 1

Heat broiler. In a bowl, combine the beef, scallions, tortilla chips, chopped cilantro, cumin, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper.

Step 2

Shape the mixture into 1-inch balls (about 24) and place on a broilerproof baking sheet. Broil until beginning to brown, 5 to 6 minutes.

Step 3

Meanwhile, in a blender, puree the salsa with 1 cup water. Transfer to a large saucepan, add 2 cups water, and bring to a boil.

Step 4

Add the meatballs, reduce heat, and simmer until cooked through, 2 to 4 minutes.

Step 5

Serve the soup with the avocado, cilantro sprigs, and tortilla chips (if desired).
