Mexican Chicken Lime Soup

My kids aren't usually big on soup but for some reason, they went nuts over this soup. They couldn't get enough! There are a lot of chicken tortilla soup recipes out there but this one is a little different because of the chipotle chiles. It gives it a unique flavor and it's so delicious!
