Keto Buffalo Chicken Soup – Important Tips

When using cream cheese and low carb ranch dressing, make sure they are at room temperature so they will mix smoothly and do not curdle into the soup.

Add chopped white onion, green onion, some avocado, and chopped cilantro on top.

Hot Sauce – There are plenty of hot sauces available in the market, but my favorite is the Frank’s Red Hot buffalo sauce, it gives a nice kick, not over spicy.

Spice it up – Add a few red pepper flakes for an extra kick

To make it more filling and hearty by adding more veggies, add a bag of steamed riced cauliflower.

For more fat content, add a splash of heavy whipping cream.

Can I make this low carb buffalo chicken soup ahead of time?

Yes! This is a great make-ahead soup, make it and store in the fridge for up to 5-6 days in a sealed air-tight container. When ready to serve, give it a good stir and pop into the microwave for 30-second intervals or until warm through.

To Freeze – You can easily freeze this for up to 3 months, since it contains dairy, it may break, but when you reheat, it will come back together and perfect to eat.
