I love all things soup! Especially Chili’s Enchilada Soup! This soup tastes just like the delicious Chili’s version, but I made some adjustments to keep it keto. This means I didn’t use any processed cheese or masa (corn flour). Yes, their soup uses both!
Now I’m happy to share with you, just in time for Fall, this full or flavor Chicken Enchilada Soup, keto style!
Let’s get started!
HOW TO MAKE CHICKEN ENCHILADA SOUP (CHILI’S COPYCAT)
First, heat the avocado oil in a large pot over medium heat.
Add in the onion, garlic, spices and chicken.
Make sure you cook until the chicken is cooked through (about 8 minutes). The chicken doesn’t need to be browned.
Now, let’s pour in the enchilada sauce and chicken broth.
Whisk in the xanthan gum and bring to a boil to thicken. As with all of my other soups and sauces that need to be thickened, I used xanthan gum.
Remove from the heat and season with salt and pepper to taste.
Serve in bowls with lot’s of cheese!

- 1 teaspoon Xanthan gum
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1 Cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
- 1 Cup shredded cheddar cheese

- Enchilada Sauce: Find one that has little to no sugar
- Xanthan Gum: This is a thickening ingredient commonly found in ice cream, salad dressings, and soups. It is gluten free and found in the baking isle at Walmart.
- I like to add the cheese to the individual bowls because I find that if it is added to the whole pot, it sinks to the bottom and becomes a melted glob on the bottom of the pot.
