With chillier months sneaking in on us, it’s officially time to break out the Crock-Pot!
Yes, that’s right. It’s time to put your Crock-Pot on low and slow for the coziest, creamiest, and cheesiest keto chicken enchilada soup recipe. Did I mention cheesy? That’s right! SO cheesy and satisfying, and I’m still enjoying the leftovers! This recipe boasts all the classic Mexican flavors, minus the carbs, in one super convenient pot.
The best part? This recipe cooks up in the Crock-Pot making it the perfect family-style meal with minimal time and effort.
Let’s hear it for easy slow cooker meals!
Every household MUST have a Crock-Pot slow cooker in their arsenal. Believe me, the possibilities are endless with this kitchen appliance! Who wouldn’t like having the work done for you after a busy week? I was even able to bring this enchilada soup over to a neighbor for football night with its convenient cook-and-carry handles!
I like to use the high-temperature settings when slow cooking proteins such as chicken or pork, and a low setting for soups, sauces, and dips. It works perfectly for this enchilada soup and really renders the moistest chicken! (Apologies if anyone here doesn’t like the word moist! 😂)
When shredding chicken or any slow-cooked meat, I think it’s best to simply use two forks. I found that it keeps the pieces intact without getting mushy, perfect for our keto chicken enchilada soup recipe.

You will absolutely love this Crock-Pot keto chicken enchilada soup. It’s creamy, dreamy, and garnished with your favorite enchilada toppings. I love adding green onions for a pop of color, texture, and crunch as well as a squeeze of a zippy lime for the perfect citrusy addition of flavor to balance that cream cheese and cream base. YUM!
My Hip sidekick Jenna gave this recipe a try and here’s what she thought:
“These flavors of this keto enchilada soup are so good. I love the use of the cheese and chicken with the green salsa (my favorite kind!). And then the addition of jalapeño slices and lime juice are such fantastic flavors! The whole process was easy and I love making the chicken right there then shredding and adding in soup ingredients. Definitely a meal I will make again!”
