Keto Chicken Tortilla Soup
Soup is one of my favorite things to make. Not only are there a TON of amazing keto soups to choose from, but they fit into any eating lifestyle! And not only that, but they make a great meal prep dinner for the week.
This keto chicken tortilla soup makes a generous 6 portions. Depending on the size of your family, you can make this ahead of time, double the recipe if needed, have it for dinner and then package it up for lunches for the rest of the week!
Keto Tortilla options
There are a variety of low carb tortilla options to buy in the store. You can also make your own if you prefer to do so. I have two options that you can choose from. The first is this keto pita bread and the second is the tortilla portion of this keto enchilada recipe.
Any of these will work beautifully.
Are the Tortilla Strips Keto Friendly?
They certainly are. As we just discussed you have a lot of options for just how to make sure the tortilla strips you use are keto-friendly. I do tend to make my own, but sometimes buying them in the store is convenient!
How Many Carbs Does Keto Chicken Tortilla Soup Have?
This delicious keto chicken tortilla soup comes in at a low 6g net carbohydrates. Given that this is a complete dinner, this is the perfect balanced meal with a low carbohydrate count to boot!
What is Rotel?
I LOVE Rotel! It is so easy to use and the flavor options are out of this world. Basically, Rotel is diced tomatoes with green chilis and spices. It beats having to do it all on your own. I use it in this soup, obviously, but I also use it in other sauces and chili!
If you've never tried Rotel before, I guarantee you'll never go back!
