Although every Christmas dinner differs depending on the household, when it comes to a Yucatecan dinner, to make it extraordinary there are certain elements that you cannot leave off your table, such as turkey broth; one of the favorite dishes served as a starter, which in addition to containing small pieces of meat is accompanied by pasta from the region.
