Caldo con Pelotas (Broth with Balls)

Ingredients for 4 people

1 handful parsley, chopped
2 cloves of garlic
black pepper or chillies
125 grams of chicken breast
Saffron powder
2 eggs
Pine nuts or almonds
1 liter of chicken stock

Meat ingredients
125 grams of lean pork
125 grams of salty bacon
125 grams of sausage
1/4 kilo of ground meat

Cut the garlic very small, chop the parsley and pine nuts, and squeezed a lemon.

In a deep platter place together all the chopped ingredients as meat and sausage, garlic, parsley, pine nuts, lemon juice, salt, saffron and black pepper or chillies (if you like spicy)

To set the ingredients add the eggs and bread crumbs. Knead well until blended evenly. Take pieces of the dough and make balls, medium size balls. 

Heat 1 liter of chicken stock in a pot. The broth can be the excess of a stew, or can be made from bouillon concentrates. 

Add the balls to the broth and let cook about 10 minutes. When broth is warm, noodle can be added, in which case let cook until tender. 

(It is sometimes also a Tapa. In the south we always squeeze lemon on top )

Add some paprika powder while making the balls, it will spice up the broth also.
