There are endless variations of this Mexican soup. Some cooks add green chilli, for instance, others prefer chipotles in adobo. It can be served just with coriander, or with grated cheese, diced tomato and avocado piled on top. In summer use fresh tomatoes; in winter canned tomatoes will be fine, too. The noodles quickly soak up the liquid, so serve this without delay.
