How to taste tortilla soup in Mexico City
Mexicans managed to turn maize flatbread into a most delicious first course dish, that perfectly warms you up in a cold weather and is considered the best prescription for hangover. Tortilla soup, or Aztec soup, is an everyday spicy Mexican dish.

The recipe has many variations. The basis are always tortillas and chicken broth, to which they add sautéed onions and garlic, diced tomatoes, and also chili and jalapeno peppers. The crunchy tortillas soak up the spicy broth, creating a fascinating taste combination.

This recipe harmoniously combines the tastes and flavors of all the ingredients, that may be really numerous. The most popular additions to this soup are cubed soft cheese, juicy chicken meat and avocado slices.

Aztec soup is served invariably with coriander and slices of lime — you should sprinkle the dish with it before eating. Sometimes they also serve sour cream with the soup, it softens a bit the spicy dish.

You can taste tortilla soup almost in every Mexican cafe or restaurant.
