For the Soup:
– 2 cups shredded cooked chicken (rotisserie or cooked chicken breasts/thighs)
– 4 cups chicken broth
– 1/2 cup buffalo sauce (adjust to taste for spiciness)
– 1/2 cup diced celery
– 1/2 cup diced onion
– 1/2 cup diced bell peppers (red and green)
– 2 cloves garlic, minced
– 1 tsp chili powder (adjust to taste)
– 1 tsp paprika
– 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper (adjust to taste)
– Salt and pepper to taste
– 1 cup heavy cream
– 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
– 2 tbsp cream cheese
– 2 tbsp butter or olive oil for sautéing
– Chopped fresh cilantro
– Sliced green onions
– Sour cream (optional)
– Crumbled blue cheese (optional)
1. In a large soup pot, melt the butter (or heat olive oil) over medium heat. Add diced celery, onion, and bell peppers. Sauté for about 5 minutes or until the vegetables are softened.
2. Stir in the minced garlic, chili powder, paprika, and cayenne pepper. Cook for an additional 1-2 minutes until fragrant.
3. Add the shredded chicken and buffalo sauce to the pot. Stir well to combine and coat the chicken with the sauce.
4. Pour in the chicken broth and bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and let it simmer for about 10-15 minutes to allow the flavors to meld together.
5. Stir in the heavy cream, cream cheese, and shredded cheddar cheese. Continue to cook over low heat, stirring frequently, until the cheeses are fully melted and the soup becomes creamy and thickened. This may take another 10 minutes or so.
6. Taste the soup and adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper as needed. If you prefer it spicier, you can add more buffalo sauce or cayenne pepper.
7. Once the soup reaches your desired consistency and flavor, remove it from heat.
8. Serve the soup hot, garnished with chopped cilantro, sliced green onions, a dollop of sour cream (if desired), and crumbled blue cheese for an extra kick.

My Shameless Story about Keto Creamy Buffalo Chicken Enchilada Soup
Once upon a chilly winter evening in a small, picturesque town nestled in the heart of the mountains, there was a cozy little diner known for its inventive and comforting dishes. The diner, aptly named “Mountain Eats,” had a special on its menu that sent locals into raptures and tempted travelers from afar to make a pitstop – the Keto Creamy Buffalo Chicken Enchilada Soup.
In this quaint diner, the soup was legendary, whispered about in hushed tones by those who had savored its complex flavors. Rumor had it that the soup had been crafted by the owner, Chef Sarah, after years of experimenting with ingredients and perfecting the recipe.
On that particular evening, the air was crisp, and the scent of burning wood from nearby fireplaces wafted through the town. As word of the famed soup spread, the diner buzzed with anticipation. Every table was occupied by patrons seeking solace from the cold and yearning for a taste of Chef Sarah’s creation.
Seated at a corner booth, a young couple, Emily and Alex, had just arrived in town.

As Emily took her first spoonful, her eyes widened with delight. The buffalo sauce added a fiery kick that danced with the soothing creaminess.

Their conversation ebbed as they fell under the soup’s spell, sharing smiles and secret glances of approval. In that cozy corner booth, they had found not just a meal but a culinary revelation. The Keto Creamy Buffalo Chicken Enchilada Soup was more than food; it was an experience.
