Tortilla soup with chipotle chilli, tomato and avocado (Sopa Azteca)

Tortilla soup with chipotle chilli, tomato and avocado (Sopa Azteca)

In Mexico, as with so many other dishes, soup is all about the bits that you add – in this case, avocado, chilli flakes, coriander and often a lick of soured cream. This dish is often made with pasilla chillies, but I like it with chipotles. I’ve also had sopa Azteca with extra shredded meat from a cooked chicken and even crisp pieces of chicken or pork skin.
