Yucatan Chicken Lime Soup

Yucatan Chicken Lime Soup
  • Prep 30 min
  • Total 60 min
  • Servings 4

When I was in Yucatan, I had the opportunity to enjoy a variety of delicious food, but I fell in love with this Yucatecan chicken lime soup. I’ve prepared it several times at home and always find it tasty, light, and it’s very easy to make. I must confess that sometimes I serve it with cooked white rice, but only because I like it that way. The fried tortillas give it a very particular crisp texture and would not change them for anything. Give it a try, I hope you like it as much as I do. ...MORE+ LESS-
