Mexican Tortilla Soup (Sopa Azteca)

Mexican Traditional Recipe from Chef Mario!

Without a doubt the tortilla soup is one of the most representative dishes of the Mexican gastronomy. Its origin is attributed to the state of Tlaxcala (soil of maize) and the dish represents the fusion of the Prehispanic and Spanish cultures.  Try this soup recipe for either lunch or dinner, we are convinced you will enjoy this spicy, delicious, easy-to-make, vegan-healthy option. This is by far our favorite soup because it is so warm and comforting, but also bright and fresh.

Our chef usually gives guests the opportunity to customize the dish to their liking, with a wide array of optional ingredients that are put on the table such as: cream, chili, avocado, etc.
