Need a crowd-pleasing slow cooker meal for the family?

If you’ve got picky eaters like me, try this delicious and easy to make Salsa Chicken Soup! It features slow-cooked chicken, lots of taco seasoning, and both cream cheese and shredded cheese. In the end, you’ll have a comforting, cheesy soup with lots of Mexican inspired flavors sure to satisfy your hungry family, any day of the week. My crew sure loved this idea!

Even on crazy days, you can make this soup with minimal prep time!

If I know my evenings are gonna be chaotic, I’ll plan on easy ideas like this one to get me through. You can use chicken breast meat or even chicken thighs if preferred, and just layer the cream cheese, spices, chicken broth, and can of Rotel over the chicken. It’s also worth noting that if you’d like to use your favorite fresh salsa instead of Rotel, by all means, that will be delicious, too.

You could use a taco seasoning packet in a pinch, but to keep things really low-carb and unprocessed, consider making a batch of this delicious keto homemade taco seasoning. It’s so GOOD! It’s easy to make, AND you can use it in so many other Mexican-inspired recipes like Keto Taco Stuffed Breadsticks, and Keto Chicken Tacos!

Once cooked, you’ll want to remove the chicken to shred it. If the cream cheese looks unappetizing, no worries! Just grab a kitchen whisk and really mix the broth well, making sure to break apart any smaller pieces of cream cheese.

Place the shredded chicken back into the slow cooker and add shredded cheese to the soup. From there, I also add a bag of steamed riced cauliflower before serving to give my soup some extra veggies and bulkiness. This is super yummy (but you can omit if it doesn’t sound delish to you).

Slow cooking winner!

Anything Mexican food related is our favorite, so it’s not surprising that this yummy cheesy soup was a hit. It has lots of chicken, and it’s so filled with flavor! If you make it, make sure to come back and let me know. 🙂

    Why are there no comments about this yet?! It’s soooo good! Just the right amount of spice and not too creamy, not too thin. I always hit my soups with th immersion blender for a second to thicken them up. Thank you as always for your help keeping us on Keto track.

      Oh my goodness this made my day Courtney! So glad. Great tip about the immersion blender 👍
