Looking for a simple, satisfying, and delicious keto soup idea? Then you’ve got to make this hearty and oh so creamy keto taco soup in your Crock-Pot slow cooker!

The cream cheese and seasonings in this soup make for an insanely delicious and brightly flavored broth.

Two pounds of ground beef and diced tomatoes make this soup very hearty and extremely comforting as well! Thankfully this slow cooker method is simple, and it consists of browning the ground beef on the stove first with seasonings and cream cheese, then throwing the rest of the ingredients in the slow cooker.

Tips for making the best Crockpot Keto Taco Soup:

    • You can use a couple of tablespoons of our homemade taco seasoning mix in your soup, or I also listed out what seasonings to use if you don’t want a full batch in the recipe. It’s easy to make and so yummy!
    • If you dislike chopping onions and garlic as much as I do, an onion chopper like this one makes it so much faster and easier. It’s one of my favorite kitchen tools!
    • I prefer 85/15 ground beef in soups so that’s what I used. You can of course use higher fat, like 80/20 or 75/25. I have also made this using ground turkey so you can make that swap as well. Keep in mind, the nutritional values are calculated on what I used (85/15 ground beef).

This is the best soup I’ve had in a long time!

Oh, man! This soup is so incredibly delicious. I’m a huge fan of making a big batch of soup and then heating it up during the week for leftovers, and this soup is just as yummy the next day.

Feel free to top it with keto-friendly add-ins such as avocado, shredded cheese, hot sauce, and sour cream.

Check out what my teammate Erica had to say about this keto taco soup:

“My favorite part about this soup is it is so EASY to make! The taste is absolutely perfect. It has a little bit of a kick to it but not too much! If you love spicy food, consider adding some extra red pepper flakes and top it with jalapeños! I topped mine with lots of sour cream, avocado, and red onions! It also pairs well with parmesan or cheddar cheese whisps if you want to add an extra crunch!”


Mexican food lovers will rejoice with these keto chimichangas!

    Wow and wow! Excellent, better the taco soup recipe I had been making (different recipe) for years. This will be my new go to. I made beans for the family and served them on the side. Other than that I followed the recipe to the letter! Thank you!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      You’re welcome, Angela! 🤗 Thanks for the great review! 💞 Happy you’ll be adding this into your regular meal rotation!

  2. Angie

    Where does the Ancho Chile spice get added and how much?? First time making but seen some one else comment that they didn’t have that spice… I just don’t see when and how much is added

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Hey Angie! This particular recipe doesn’t call for that spice, but you could add it to the seasoning mix, if you did have it on hand! Hoping this is helpful! 💗

  3. Lisa

    When do you add the cilantro

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Lisa! You can add the Cilantro when you make the transfer to the slow cooker. It can be added in with the Rotel and beef broth. Hope you love it! 💞
