Super Easy Low-Carb Keto Chicken Enchilada Soup

Seriously easy – you only need 5 ingredients to make this keto chicken enchilada soup recipe and they are all pretty common ones too. Plus, you can have it ready to go in less than 30 minutes easy! This simple keto soup really does taste just like a green chicken enchilada would…if it were a soup. 😉

Keto chicken enchilada soup ingredients

Ingredients

The salsa verde, cream cheese, shredded sharp cheddar cheese, and chicken stock all get blended together. I usually use my high-power blender, but you can add those ingredients straight to a saucepan and use an immersion blender instead.

Chicken broth can be used in place of the chicken stock or bone broth. Stock tends to have a more full and rich flavor, but the broth works too! Find out how to make your own easy fat-free chicken broth here.

Completing Your Low-Carb Keto Soup Mixture

All you need to do is blend it until smooth! Then you’ve got a simple and flavorful mixture that just needs to be heated up and have chicken added. We weren’t lying when we said this recipe was easy.

By the way, depending on the salsa verde that you use, this low-carb keto soup recipe can end up being a bit spicy. So make sure you use a green salsa that you like!

Adding Chicken to Complete Your Keto Chicken Enchilada Soup

To keep it super simple for myself, I like to shred up some rotisserie chicken for this soup and use the rest of the chicken for something else. But it is still pretty simple and easy to cook up a chicken breast or two and shred it (learn how to shred chicken with a mixer). Whatever works!

If you like green chicken enchiladas, you’ll like this soup…even if you are not trying to eat low carb, keto, or gluten-free. I love how it is so simple and fast to make, but you still get a lot of satisfying flavors. Dress it up with additional shredded sharp cheddar, cilantro, or green onions as garnish.

Feel free to serve your keto chicken enchilada soup with a keto-friendly side dish as well. Something like this grilled zucchini, roasted asparagus, or jalapeno poppers. For a keto-friendly dessert, you could serve an easy raspberry mousse, some low-carb brownies, or these tasty raspberry brie bites. Enjoy!
