We love our Keto Chicken Tortilla Soup Recipe as a big hearty bowl for lunch or even as a keto-friendly dinner. While we don’t go through the effort of trying to make or fake tortilla strips just to garnish the bowl, you can still add some things like Cheddar Moon Cheese to it if you still want something crunchy in your spoonfuls.

While the garnishing is totally optional, I highly recommend using the cheese, sour cream, and avocado to help increase the fat macros for this soup, plus it makes the Chicken Tortilla Soup even more flavorful and filling too so it’s a win/win.

We have also seen variants of this type of soup made with ground beef, at which point I would opt to use the Beef Bone Broth instead of the Chicken if you make it that way. Either way I bet it is just as good!

  • Will the cheese “tortillas” in your keto chicken enchiladas hold up in this soup? Just trying to make it look more like tortilla soup. I live in El Paso and trying to keep up appearances.
