Sopa de Lima (Or Sopa de NOM NOM)

Updated: Sep 8, 2020

This delicious Sopa de Lima soup originates in Mexico. My husband introduced this to me when we were dating. Before we started dating, he went scuba diving in Cozumel and was served this soup. When he returned, he went on a mission trying to find the recipe. He found various recipes but they didn't seem right, so he created his own. He hit perfection! #SoNomNom4u
