Low-Carb Chicken Bacon Ranch Soup Recipe
Howdy! Chef Alli Here. Let’s Get You Cookin’….Shall We?? 🙂
All you have to say is the word “bacon” to get my men running in from their work for this hearty, creamy and rich soup. It’s a quick recipe that can be thrown together at lunchtime because it’s full of enough flavorful goodness to keep them going on those long, cold days of Winter here on the farm.
I love to make a pot of this chicken ranch soup in my Lodge Dutch oven and leave it on the stove to simmer. Then we can all grab a bowl of hot soup whenever we need to, whether we’re running out the door or just coming home.
Calling All Ranch and Bacon Lovers!
The thing that really gives this soup it’s full flavor is the ranch seasoning. You can easily make this at home with your own ingredients, but I prefer to just walk in my pantry where I always have some Lutz’s Ranch Dressing Mix on hand. It’s so convenient to have ranch seasoning at all times to throw into soups, smother on chicken, or whip up for a salad dressing!
Top your soup with crisped bacon, freshly grated cheese, and any other ingredients you like. Your soup is now ready to warm up family and friends all season long!
