This traditional dish, sometimes called Italian wedding soup, successfully marries the flavors of meats and greens. The spoon-size turkey meatballs in this version make it a real kid-pleaser and hearty enough to be a satisfying supper.
This speedy but filling soup has a mildly spiced flavor, thanks to a cup of tomato salsa in the mix. It reheats nicely too, so you might want to double the batch and freeze what's left for another night.
Here's a full-flavored chili with just a touch of heat. If your kids don't like theirs too spicy, use only about three-quarters of the Southwest Seasoning Mix and save the rest to season other Tex-Mex dishes.
