Want to make Sopa de Lima (Lime Soup)

I know that sounds disgusting but this Mexican soup is delicious! It is basically chicken soup (no pasta) with lime juice added at the end and topped with fried tortilla strips. One of the restaurants that we always go to in Cozumel always serves lime soup before the entrees. That's where I first discovered it. I've made it before in the past and it is easy enough to do. The only thing I do differently from the recipes that I've seen online is that I don't use cloves. I'm pretty sure that the restaurant doesn't use cloves so I skip them. Otherwise it tastes pretty much just like I've had in Mexico. Have you ever had Lime Soup?

@NJChicaa I think I may try it sometime myself. I'm not sure I've ever seen this served in restaurants here in the States and I wonder why.

I've had lime soup in a couple of Mexican restaurants here in Manila and I'm looking to make one at home. Just haven't gotten to buying the ingredients needed for it.
