Mexican Meatball Soup
Mexican Meatball Soup is sponsored by Safeway and Albertsons

The temperatures finally starting to drop iWashington, and with that Logan came home with his first cold of the season. Plus I've been craving soup. I meawhen am I not? I could live off of soup. 

So I made a big batch of Mexican Meatball Soup.

It's the perfect soup to starve off a cold. It has a spicy tomato based hearty broth with lots of veggies, spinach, corn, black beans, and rice. Then I added lots of perfectly seasoned cheesy meatballs, because we all know cheesy meatballs will always make you feel better even on the worst days. This is seriously a life changing bowl of deliciousness.

Move over Chicken Noodle there's a new favorite in town...

Mexican Meatball Soup O Organics
Most of the O Organics® ingredients for Mexican Meatball Soup are standard staples in our house. I always try to have the things on hand for Mexican food or soup. But the great thing about our local Safeway or Albertsons is they offer a home delivery service, so even if I'm feeling under the weather or having a bad pain day I can place an order for the things I need without leaving the comfort of my home.

I love that O Organics has made high quality organic products, produce, and meat affordable for all.  Plus the quality can't be beat. A few weeks back as Colt was checking out the cashier told him about the just for U® savings tool, and he's now hooked on helping us save money at the grocery store. He was never one for cutting coupons, unlike me. But the app makes it simple for both of us to save money by creating a list, finding specials, and to take advantage of coupons, and deals with the app on your phone. It's allowed us to save money on groceries without a lot of fuss.

O Organics helps me keep my family nourished, and healthy even during the height of cold season at an affordable price. In my area, O Organic products are exclusive to Safeway and Albertsons, but can be found at all Albertsons Companies family of stores including ACME Markets, Jewel-Osco, Vons, Pavilions, Randalls, Tom Thumb, Shaw's, Star Market, United Express, United, and Carr/Safeway.
