I started cooking this keto Mexican Chicken soup by seasoning the chicken thighs really well with onion powder, garlic powder, cumin, cayenne pepper, and sea salt. When adding cooked chicken to a soup, it is better to over season the meat a little instead of under seasoning it. In this way, the chicken will continue to have its own delicious and savory taste after it has been added to the soup. While the chicken cooked, the vegetables were sauteed in a skillet to prepare for bringing this keto Mexican chicken soup together. Once the vegetables are finished cooking, the soup base can be prepared with a few basic seasonings. And lastly,  this low carb chicken soup is served in a medium-sized bowl and topped with diced avocados, diced tomatoes, jalapenos, shredded cheddar cheese, and some fresh squeezed lime juice. So, let’s get started.
