This Low Carb Taco Soup is a delicious, light, keto friendly meal with all that wonderful taco flavor we all love♥!
Finally! I was able to summon up all the sipag I have in my body to start execising again. After so many months without work out and eating up sweets and being so lazy in the morning — today, I hauled ass and did a 30-minute work out.
I figured it’s about time because I’ve been feeling sluggish and even more lazy. I needed more energy during the day. Aside from that, school will start next month and I will need all the energy that I can get. Of course, the keto diet is working but I get stressed with peanutbutter♥ when he gets envious everytime Ykaie eats rice…LOL! He feels so deprived and kawawa.
Anyway, I made a pot of this Low Carb Taco Soup over the week for freezing. I know it’s still Summer and it’s really hot but we love soup for breakfast and dinner. This makes life easier for us because we just have to get a serving from the freezer and re-heat whenever we want soup.
Making this Low Carb Taco Soup is actually really easy because I just took my Healthier Taco Soup recipe and removed all the carbs. Then I replaced the ground beef with ground chicken. It still tastes really good and satisfies your soup cravings.
