Keto Taco Soup
***** 4/12 UPDATED RECIPE *****
So last night I reworked my keto taco soup recipe. There was just something missing. Don't get me wrong, people loved it - including my family!
But I knew there was something I wanted to add. It took me a few months of just "letting it stew", then it hit me tonight.
I rushed out and bought the ingredients and went to work.
What were the changes, you might ask?
Well, i was inspired by my very popular Chicken Crock Pot recipe.
First, I added salsa. Yes salsa. I mean, does anyone not love salsa? It's kind of like guacamole - just generally accepted as awesome!
Next, I added sour cream at the very end. This makes it just a tad bid creamier (just a tad) and blends the flavors.
And let's not forget the shredded white cheddar! Um... YUM! That made a huge difference!
Lastly, I created my own taco seasoning. It is very similar to my Keto Fajita Seasoning which packs quite the punch!
I don't know about you, but I love my soups chunky. Meaning, I want more solid food than liquid. This soup is the perfect combination of solid and liquid.
It also packs a little punch with the spices. One thing that really helps the spices be a part of every bite is adding it while browning sausage. It is kind of like searing meat!
Frying Pan - You will need a frying pan in order to brown the sausage!
The sky is the limit with toppings! I chose to put a dollup of sour cream, some shredded white cheddar, and green onions.
Other ideas are crumbled keto chips, more salsa, pretty much anything!
