Nobody wants to eat a bowl of plain old chicken soup. So why not try Mexican chicken soup. This keto recipe is loaded with seared chicken, corn, avocados, tomatoes, and onion. Of course, no Mexican soup would be complete without a bit of cumin and chili powder. This soup is finished with a squeeze of lime juice to balance out the flavor of this spicy Mexican soup. Serve with low-carb tortilla chips or Mexican cauliflower rice to complete this meal.
