Howdy –
I recently shared a family-favorite soup recipe, Low Carb Tex Mexican Soup, that featured ground beef. Soon, I realized how delicious it would be to have a creamy, low carb soup that showcased shredded chicken….so here we go! I cooked my chicken in the Instant Pot, which, in my opinion, is the best small appliance in the history of ever, but feel free to make this recipe extra-easy by using the meat from a rotisserie chicken.

Easy Recipe Tips for Creamy Fiesta Chicken Soup (Low Carb)

1. A rotisserie chicken can be a Mom’s bestie because we are always short on time (our most precious ingredient) and our family is always starving.  I like to shred my rotisserie chicken meat while it’s still warm instead of later on when it’s chilled; the meat pulls away from the bones better when the rotisserie chicken hasn’t been refrigerated at home yet.

2.  This easy soup recipe calls for the juice and zest of a lime…..please don’t skip either one of these ingredients in this recipe.  The lime juice adds depth to the soup base and the lime zest gets things zesty! Use your Microplane citrus zester to to zest away the nice, bright part of the lime, leaving the white part (this is the pith and it’s bitter!) behind.  Citrus zest is a powerful ingredient in any recipe and you don’t want to pass it up….especially since it’s completely fat free and zero calories, yet adds so much punch and brightness to any dish!
