Today I will show you how to prepare a delicious low carb, slow cooker taco soup using ground beef.

Taco soup, without a doubt, is one of the most representative dishes of Mexican cuisine. This keto taco soup recipe is a great low carb alternative for every ketogenic dieter.

I used ground beef as the main meat for this recipe, but you can have chicken or your favorite choice of meat.

Since tomatoes have a decent amount of carbs, the amount of tomato and tomato puree in this recipe can be adjusted according to your macros.

The spices in this dish don’t just enhance the flavor. They also provide an excellent source of antioxidants and vitamins that combat free radical damage and prevent inflammation.

For example, paprika contains carotenoids, such as capsanthin and capsorubin, that contain anti-tumor, antioxidant, and anticancer effects in the body (1)(2). 

Cumin has bioactive compounds, including phenols, terpenes, and flavonoids, that have been shown to possess antidiabetic, antihypertensive, immune-boosting, antimicrobial, and gastroprotective effects, among many others (3). 

Meanwhile, garlic contains allium, which has antitumor and antimicrobial effects to help support immune health (4). It has also been shown to reduce cardiovascular risks.

Beef is an excellent source of protein for this dish. Try this soup, you will not regret it.

Now, I understand that not everyone has a crockpot at home or maybe you don’t have four hours to wait for the slow cooker to cook.

Some people just want it quick and easy so here’s the good news: You can make this soup using a saucepan and it should take you less than 30 minutes to make, which is perfect for a quick weeknight dinner.

Here’s a quicker creamy taco soup recipe for you to try. You can use all the ingredients in the recipe card below, but instead of using a crock pot, you can use a regular soup pot.

30 Minute One Pot Low Carb Taco Soup

Step 1: In a medium saucepan, add one tablespoon of olive oil and fry the onion and garlic until the onion is transparent. Add the ground meat and gently stir for five minutes until cooked. Add the chopped tomatoes, tomato puree, all the spices, and chicken broth or beef broth. You can use homemade taco seasoning for this, too. If you like it spicy, add a little bit of chili powder. Boil for about five minutes then let it simmer for 10 minutes.

Brown ground beef and cook with tomato

Step 2: Finally, add the cream cheese and cheddar cheese. Once they’re dissolved, remove from heat. Serve with coriander and cheddar crisps as well as sour cream if you prefer.

Note: The easiest way to make cheddar cheese crisps is by baking cheddar cheese on parchment paper in the oven for 10-15 minutes until you see a golden brown color around the edge.
