Cauliflower Soup

Keto Green Chili Cauliflower Soup

It’s chilly outside but rather than turning to a pot of chili, as is so common, I suggest trying my new Keto Green Chili Cauliflower Soup recipe. This dish is creamy, flavorful, and made with simple, easy-to-find ingredients.

After the bacon gets cooked, the cauliflower is cooked in the bacon grease to soak up all that delicious flavor. After the cauliflower and broth are blended, they are then mixed with cream cheese, cheddar cheese, and heavy cream. This creamy consistency and flavor pairs beautifully with the spice of the Hatch diced green chilies. Top it with bacon, green onions, and more cheese and you’re done!

If you aren’t on a keto diet, feel free to serve this with a crusty gluten-free baguette for dipping.

  • 4 slices sugar-free thick cut bacon , diced
  • 1 large head cauliflower , chopped
  • cups gluten-free chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • Kosher or fine sea salt
  • 4 ounces full-fat cream cheese , cut into cubes
  • 1 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese , plus more for serving

  • Place the bacon in a Dutch oven or large stock pot. Turn the heat to medium and cook, stirring occasionally until the bacon is crispy. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels and set aside.
  • Add the cauliflower to the bacon grease and cook, stirring occasionally until starting to brown, about 5 minutes. Add the chicken broth, garlic powder, onion powder, pepper and 1 teaspoon salt. Bring to a boil. Cover the pot, lower the heat, and simmer until the cauliflower is very tender, 20-30 minutes.

  • Serve topped with the bacon, extra cheese, and green onions.

      You can use a dairy free creamer (unflavored) or a dairy free milk of choice with some dairy free butter mixed into it. See this page for details:
