This is a spicy Mexican soup containing pork or chicken and cacahuazintle corn. For the Aztecs, maize was considered a sacred plant, this made Pozole a celebratory dish consumed during Aztec rites.

There is the red pozole (rojo), green pozole (verde) and white pozole (blanco).

Red sauce, such as guajillo or ancho, is used to make the red pozole. Green ingredients such as jalapenos or pepitas are used to make the green pozole. For the white pozole, there is no green or red sauce.

3. Sopa Azteca

This is also known as Tortilla soup. Avocado, cheese, cream, chili pepper, and tortilla are used in this simple tomato soup. They all add a pleasant flavor to the soup as well as a splash of color.
