The best thing for this is a good primary source. The best primary source on the Aztec religion is the Florentine Codex, an extensive study of all aspects of Aztec society compiled in the 1500s by Bernardino de Sahagun and several native american associates of his at the college of Tlatelolco.

Recently, all 12 books were translated into English. The ones you would find most helpful would be:

Book 1: The Gods which is a full description of the entire pantheon and what was believed about each god, complete with illustrations.

Book 3, the Origin of the Gods, might also be helpful, as well as books 4 and 5 on Soothsayers and Omens.
