For this recipe to be Whole 30, Paleo, or Keto, LEAVE OUT THE CORN!

This is hands down in my top 3 favorite meals ever. I cannot really describe why this is so good, it just is. I have made it time and time again for family and friends, and I swear every time it gets better and better! This chicken tortilla soup is packed with so many different flavors, it’s a sensation in every. single. bite.

I am going to be straight with you. The ingredients below may seem overwhelming and extensive but LEGIT they are not and is soooo easy to make.

Prep Time: 15 minutes Cook Time: 25 minutes Yield: 8 Servings


  • 3 lbs of shredded chicken cooked (it turns out best when you cook it for 4 hours on high in crockpot…so tender)!
  • 1 box of frozen chopped spinach defrosted
  • 1 jar of Whole 30 compliant tomato sauce Rao’s, Monte Bene, Thrive Market
  • Whole 30 compliant hot sauce (optional and to taste if you use it) Tessemae’s
  • 1 box (32 oz) of Whole 30 compliant chicken broth Great Value
  • Taco Seasoning (see below)
  • Taco Sauce (see below)
  • Cashew Cream (Optional)

Taco Seasoning:

  • 1 1/2 TBSP of chili powder
  • 7/8 tsp of garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp of salt
  • 1 tsp of ground cumin
  • 1 tsp of dried oregano
  • 1/4 tsp of paprika
  • 1/4 tsp of cayenne pepper (optional if you do not like any spiciness but it’s really not that spicy)
  • 3/8 tsp of onion powder

Taco Sauce:

  • 7 oz of tomato sauce
  • 1 1/4 TBSP of white vinegar
  • 1/2 TBSP of cumin
  • 1 tsp of chili powder
  • 1 tsp of garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp of onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp of paprika
  • 1/2 tsp of cayenne pepper (depends on personal taste)!


  1. Rub 3/4 of taco seasoning onto raw chicken and place in CrockPot on high for 4 hours (if you do not have the time, place in the oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes)
  2. Once the chicken is done, shred it with a fork
  3. Dry out defrosted frozen spinach with paper towels
  4. In a pot, place the jar of tomato sauce and chicken broth in a stir on medium
  5. Add in spinach, taco sauce, shredded chicken, rest of taco seasoning, and hot sauce into pot
  6. Turn the stove up to high until it boils, put a lid on it, reduce heat to med low and let simmer for 15 minutes (if you have the time, if not, just serve immediately)!
  7. When you are ready to serve, I suggest topping it with cashew cream and mixing it in…it will give it an incredible texture and flavor. Click here for recipe
    1. Cashew cream is made by blending cashews and water together and adding some salt and pepper

Note: If you are not doing Whole 30, Paleo, or Keto, feel free to add corn-it is YUMMY!

Note: If you are doing the Keto diet, feel free to add cheese; it’s a great addition.

Note: If you are doing the Paleo diet, you should get grain-free tortillas and make them crispy in a frying pan and break them up like “chips” on top of your soup!
