Then add vegetables. Cook ingredients for about 2 minutes. Then add 1-2 cups of Chicken broth. Set heat to low and let simmer for 5 minutes.
Cut limes into halves and squeeze out lima juice into a small bowl. Then add juice to the soup.
Cut 1/2 lime into very thin slices. Heat up 1 tablespoon of oil in a sauce pan and add limes. Toast them at high heat for 2-3 minutes. These limes will give the soup an extra special aroma.
Cut tortillas into fine strips.Add 1/4 cup oil to a second sauce pan and set heat to medium high. When oil is hot, add tortilla strips and fry them for 2-3 minutes. When they turn crispy, take them out and place them on a paper towel.
