The chicken

Combine rub ingredients together and then massage into chicken breasts.

Heat a soup pot on medium high with oil, and then place the chicken inside the pot.

Sear both sides and then remove to a plate for later.

Fry red pepper and onion until onion is translucent, then stir in jalapeños.

The Soup

Pour 1/2 cup broth into the pot and then scrub all of the blackened bits from the bottom.

Add tomato paste, diced tomatoes and remaining broth.

Place the seared chicken back into the soup and then simmer until the internal temperature has reached 165°.

Remove the chicken from the soup and then using two forks, shred it all.

Stir the shredded chicken back into the soup.

Stir in shredded cheese, then serve Keto Chicken Tortilla Soup with your favourite taco toppings!

My favourites are sour cream, avocado, more cheese, cheese crisps or tortilla strips and cilantro.
