If you haven't noticed yet, I've been on a roll with the Mexican recipes lately. That's because it's the one type of food that my entire family can agree on! I'm all about trying to please everyone when I can.
This low carb Chicken Fajita Soup happens to be a family favorite! It's hearty and filled with shredded chicken in every bite.
Have you tried my Chicken Fajita Casserole recipe? It's the most popular recipe on my site, so I decided to create this soup as a spin-off. This soup is very similar to the casserole and so easy to make!
How to Make Low Carb Chicken Fajita Soup
- Cook the chicken on the stove top in 4 cups of the chicken broth, and then remove from the pot and shred it with 2 forks. You can reserve any leftover broth for the soup if you'd like.
- Heat an empty stockpot on the stove to medium-high. Toss in the butter, and saute the diced bell peppers, garlic and onions until fragrant.
- Add in the shredded chicken, cream cheese, diced tomatoes and green chilies, and taco seasoning. Stir everything until combined, and the cream cheese is melted.
- Next, add in the chicken broth and stir until everything is combined. Allow the soup to simmer for 15 minutes.
- Once the soup is done, stir in 1/2 cup shredded cheese. (I used cheddar)
- Serve in bowls, and top with your favorite low carb fajita toppings like sour cream or extra cheese.
