Low-Carb Taco Soup with Heavy Whipping Cream

The base of this Mexican soup uses heavy whipping cream and chicken broth, both great low-carb ingredients. The heavy whipping cream eliminates flour.  Many soup recipes contain flour as a thickener.

The flavor comes from a combination of diced tomatoes and green chiles (we use Rotel) and beef or pork chorizo. Not familiar with chorizo? It’s a Mexican beef sausage known for spice and flavor. Fry it up quickly in a skillet or even in the soup pan for a one pan meal, and be sure to drain the excess grease.

Many Mexican and taco soups contain beans for added depth.  We did a simple swap for frozen, riced cauliflower.  It’s a great freezer staple to keep on hand.

Notes About Perfect Keto Taco Soup:

  • This low carb taco soup with heavy whipping cream recipe is quick to throw together, and it only has 5 ingredients.
  • Use Mexican Chorizo not Spanish Chorizo. It should be similar to raw ground beef not hard like a summer sausage.
  • Chorizo is typically a very greasy meat, so be sure to drain the excess off.  However, we recommend that you leave some of the fat to add amazing flavor to this keto taco soup.
  • We love this one pan plan – the same skillet that is used to fry up the chorizo is used to build the soup. This makes clean up easy.
