  • – 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • – 1 small onion, diced
  • – 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • – 1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and minced
  • – 1 pound ground turkey or chicken
  • – 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • – 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • – 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • – 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • – 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional, for extra heat)
  • – 4 cups chicken broth
  • – 1 can (14.5 ounces) diced tomatoes, undrained
  • – 1 can (4 ounces) diced green chilies
  • – 1 cup cauliflower rice
  • – Salt and pepper to taste
  • – Optional toppings: sliced avocado, shredded cheese, chopped cilantro, sour cream, lime wedges, etc.


1. In a large pot or Dutch oven, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the diced onion, minced garlic, and minced jalapeño pepper, and sauté until softened, about 2-3 minutes.

2. Add the ground turkey or chicken to the pot, breaking it up with a spoon, and cook until browned and cooked through, about 5-7 minutes.

3. Stir in the ground cumin, chili powder, paprika, dried oregano, and cayenne pepper (if using), and cook for another minute to toast the spices and release their flavors.

4. Pour in the chicken broth, diced tomatoes (with their juices), diced green chilies, and cauliflower rice. Bring the soup to a simmer, then reduce the heat to low and let it simmer gently for about 15-20 minutes to allow the flavors to meld together and the cauliflower rice to cook through.

5. Taste the soup and adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper as needed.

6. Ladle the low carb Mexican soup into bowls and serve hot, garnished with your favorite toppings such as sliced avocado, shredded cheese, chopped cilantro, sour cream, or lime wedges.
