Childhood memories are vivid, almost indescribable in their detail, and impossible to forget. A Christmas memory I have is that of a black velvet dress  a family friend gave to me for my seventh Christmas.

Albondigas! Mexican Meatballs (Video)

Submitted by on October 12, 2010 – 8:50 am6 Comments

I sat front and center at the cooking demo done by Maura Wall Hernandez in the Kenmore kitchen at Blogalicious in Miami Beach. Yo no soy boba.

When the albóndigas with chipotle salsa were done, I was among the first to sample and I was in the perfect spot to get some more. I will admit to eating four and wanting more. Glotona.

They were juicy and spicy, but not so much that my non-fiery Cuban tongue couldn’t handle it. (Cuban food isn’t spicy, just so you know.)

Maura, who writes the beautiful and mouth-watering blog, The Other Side of the Tortilla (and who also is my editor at Cafe Magazine), published the recipe today.  She wrote:

Albóndigas are a simple comfort food, easy to make and even easier to eat. Some people like to make their albóndigas bigger so they can accommodate a whole egg filling on the inside. José only likes them without egg, so a few months ago I finally learned this recipe from our family friend, Esmeralda. This is her recipe, so we fondly call it albóndigas estilo Esme (or in English: meatballs, Esme-style) in our house. It’s a simple but traditional Mexican food sure to please the whole family.

Here is Maura during the cooking demo:

I have to say these were better than any Cuban albóndigas I ever have eaten.

Do you have a favorite albóndigas recipe, or special ingredient to share?

Buen provecho!

Share, por favor!
