A Little Taste of Mexico: Sopa de Lima

Sopa de Lima – literally translated to “lime soup”, is the specialty of the Yucatán region of Mexico, with the recipe dating back to Mayan times. This was our favourite meal to eat in Mexico, and until you try it you cannot begin to imagine how heavenly the combination of a beautiful chicken and lime broth, avocado and crunchy tortilla strips can be.
