Alternate Ingredients:

  • Include kidney or black beans.
  • Instead of beef stock, use bone broth or chicken broth.
  • Substitute ground turkey or ground chicken for the ground beef.
  • Green chilies, salsa, and chili powder all add a little bit more heat.
  • For even more creaminess, add a splash or two of heavy cream.
  • Lime juice adds a wonderful tangy flavor to this soup.
  • Sliced green onions make another great topping.

Tips and Tricks:

  • Most soup recipes work equally well in a slow cooker as on the stove. Give it a try!
  • Make your own soup stock at home. You can then freeze it in freezer-safe containers and pull out portions as you need them. You can do this with chicken, beef, or turkey stock.
  • Store any leftover soup in the fridge in an airtight container for up to a week.

Make this low carb!

  • Find low carb substitutions for your current favorite recipes, like using cauliflower instead of rice and radishes instead of potatoes.
  • Maintain a healthy balance of protein and fats. Sometimes it’s hard to get enough fat and/or protein in a ketogenic diet, so be sure to include a balance of both in your dishes.
  • Plan ahead and use tools like this Meal Planning Printable to reach maximum success.
  • Be sure to stock the kitchen with helpful tools like this food scale, these measuring cups, and a Kitchen Aid mixer.
