This tasty soup is pure Mexican comfort food. The crunch of the chicharrón and fried tortilla strips pairs wonderfully with the creamy avocado and queso fresco. Combine it with the tomato-based soup with shredded chicken, and you've got the perfect bite!
Abuela’s favorite. Sopa Azteca, or tortilla soup, is a simple and classic Mexican dish. Often topped with avocado, cheese and crema, it's enjoyed pretty much any time of year. Everybody adds their own touch, like my mom who loves to add crunchy chicharrón and chile. You can get creative with the ingredients and toppings, depending on your taste, but this one's my go-to recipe. ¡Buen Provecho!
