Crack Chicken & Cauliflower Rice Soup

Stop what you are doing and make this Low-Carb Crack Chicken & Rice Soup. Even if you aren’t doing a low-carb/keto-diet, you are going to LOVE this soup. It is crazy good! Quick chicken and cauliflower rice soup loaded with cheddar, bacon, and ranch. One bite and you will be blown away!

What does Crack mean? If a recipe has crack in the title it means that it has cheddar, bacon, and ranch in the recipe. It all started with my Crack Dip way back in 2007. I made the dip for a Titans football game. Everyone went crazy over it. We couldn’t stop eating it and said it was like crack. The name stuck. The flavor combination is the best. This tetrazzini is no exception. SO good!

How to Make Low-Carb Crack Chicken & Rice Soup

This soup is super easy to make. Combine chicken broth, cooked chicken, ranch dressing mix, carrots, and celery. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer and add cheddar cheese and cauliflower rice. Cook until the cheese has melted and the cauliflower is cooked. That’s it! Easy Peasy!

  • I used rotisserie chicken for the cooked chicken in this soup.

  • Feel free to substitute turkey bacon for the regular pork bacon.
  • There is no need to thaw the cauliflower rice before adding it to the soup. It will cook in the soup mixture just fine.
  • Can I make Low-Carb Crack Chicken & Rice Soup in the slow cooker? Sure! Add everything but the cheese and cauliflower rice to the crockpot and cook on LOW for 6 to 8 hours. Add the cheese and cauliflower rice and cook for an additional 20 to 30 minutes.
