Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. When oil is so hot it shimmers, add onion, garlic and chilies. Sauté until onion is translucent, about 3 minutes.
Add cumin, coriander, chicken stock, coconut milk, clam juice and heavy cream; bring to a gentle simmer. Cook, partially covered, 30 minutes.
Add spinach and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally until spinach is cooked, about 5 minutes.
In a blender, puree soup in batches until smooth. Transfer to a bowl. Stir in lime juice and salt to taste. Serve hot.
