Is there any difference between Sopa Azteca and Tortilla Soup? Or is it just two names for the same thing?

jajaja. 8-)

I know this is a stupid and very basic question, but I've always wondered. I just assumed they were the same thing, but then what do I know. Surely somebody else must be asking themselves the same question. I can't be the only ignorant person, can I?

CAN I ??????

Of course you can't! There are many of us!

And psst, yes, sopa azteca is the same as tortilla soup. Google sopa azteca recipe and you'll see!

Thanks. That stupid question has been in my head for about five years now. Happy to clear some of the cobwebs out.

So: how different is Sopa Tarasca from Sopa de Tortilla? And, also, Sopa de Limón? (I think I know the answer, but I'm interested in others' interpretations.)

Without resorting to a recipe search, since guessing is more fun...

Isn't Sopa Tarasca a creamy bean soup? And Sopa de Limón, hmmmm. It's been so long since I had it. Isn't it a caldo with, usually, shrimp? For some reason I associate it with the Yucatan.

Sopa Tarasca can either have a bean puree base or a roux and tomato base. Tomato puree is usually included in both versions. The standard garnish is a strip of fried, (dried) chile pasilla, julienne of fried tortilla strips, and a glob of crema. There are many inferior versions served in restaurants, missing important components. (I have had some that was little more than weak chicken stock, roux, and inferior garnishes.) IMO, it needs the puree of frijoles to make it really good.

Sopa de Lima (I correct myself here), as I understand it, is a light chicken soup flavored with the juice of the lima, a fragrant citrus fruit less acid than either lemons or limes, shreds of chicken, the ubiquitous julienne of tortilla strips, and I think, that's all.

I think Sopa Azteca, Tortilla soup and Sopa de Lima are all the same, just added a slice of lime and lime juice to the latter.......
