Chicken Tortilla Soup

Prep:     10 mins
Cook:    6-7 hrs
Serves: 4-6


1 medium red onion, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, crushed
3 medium tomatoes, peeled, seeded, and chopped
2 cups chicken bone broth
1 t kosher salt or to taste
⅛ t freshly ground black pepper or to taste
1 mild green chilli pepper, seeded and chopped
1 lb boneless chicken thighs
4 keto tortillas
2 T avocado oil
1 cup full-fat coconut milk

Optional: Use 2 T coarsely- chopped fresh cilantro to garnish.

Combine the onion, garlic, tomatoes, broth, salt, freshly ground black pepper, and green chilli pepper in a 6-quart slow cooker.

Lay the chicken thighs on top.

Cover, and cook on LOW for 6–7 hours.

Cut the keto tortillas in half, and then cut the halves into ¼-inch strips.

Heat the avocado oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the tortilla strips, and cook, stirring until crisp. Drain on paper towels.

When the soup is done, remove the chicken thighs, and transfer the soup to a blender. Add the coconut milk, and blend until smooth.

Cut the chicken thighs into bite-sized pieces, and set them aside.

Ladle the tortilla soup into bowls, and top with chicken pieces and tortilla strips. Sprinkle with chopped cilantro, and serve!
