I almost scrolled past this creamy ground beef taco soup recipe because it was called “keto taco soup.” Not being on the keto diet, I wasn’t sure I needed to click on it and check it out. I sure am glad I did! This easy, cheesy taco soup takes less than 20 minutes from start to finish to make. The flavors are fantastic! If this is how you eat on the keto diet, sign me up!
The Mexican taco soup starts with ground beef and onion being cooked together. Taco seasoning and cream cheese join the party. Once the cream cheese has melted into the ground beef, tomatoes with green chiles, beef broth and heavy cream are stirred in. All the soup really has to do now is heat through. So simple and tasty! I did add some fresh chopped cilantro to the soup in the last step. This quick low-carb soup recipe definitely made it into my recipe folder.
Ladle the soup into individual soup bowls and top with desired toppings. Toppings to consider are chopped red onion, chopped green onions, sliced jalapeno or serrano peppers, fresh chopped cilantro, avocado and shredded Mexican cheese. If you’re not following the keto diet, add some crunchy tortilla strips. This easy keto-friendly taco soup can be served for lunch or fast dinner.
