Ingredients & Substitutions
4 Slices of Bacon – Substitute this ingredient with bacon bits for a quicker recipe that doesn’t require cooking bacon on the stove top. Or leave it out if you don’t want to make a keto bacon cheeseburger soup recipe.
Keep in mind that this ingredient adds a nice flavor to the soup so removing this ingredient would change the overall flavor of this low carb soup recipe.
1 Pound Browned Beef– Use venison, ground turkey, ground chicken, or lean ground beef.
4 Ounces of Cream Cheese– Add extra cheese for an extra cheesy soup but be sure to recalculate the nutritional information to fit into your daily values with new additions.
2 Tablespoons of Tomato Paste– You can replace this ingredient with ketchup if you don’t have any tomato paste on hand but using what the recipe card calls for will result in a slightly thicker soup.
1 Tablespoon of Mustard– You can use brown mustard or yellow mustard, whichever you prefer.
1 Teaspoon Garlic Powder– Add in fresh garlic or onion powder for an additional burst of flavor.
1/2 Teaspoon Paprika– Add more or incorporate red pepper flakes as well for a spicy bowl of soup.
2 Cups of Beef Broth– Use beef stock for a similar flavor or use chicken broth for a new keto-friendly soup recipe with a different flavor.
8 Ounces of Shredded Cheddar Cheese– You can substitute sharp cheddar cheese for Velveeta cheese, pepper jack, or your favorite cheese for this slow cooker bacon cheeseburger soup.
1/4 Cup of Heavy Whipping Cream– You can substitute the heavy cream in this easy keto cheeseburger soup if you are cutting out dairy products but the only thing to keep in mind
is that the substitution might alter the richness and creaminess of the soup. You can add to the texture by using xanthan gum if you prefer a thicker soup.
1 Small Onion, diced– Use red onions, green onions, or white onions if you prefer.
1 10-ounce can of Tomatoes and Green Chili– This addition makes this a more chunky soup so if you prefer creamy soups, feel free to leave this out
