Low Carb Creamy Enchilada Soup

I love a good soup on a cold day. Today in Texas, we are actually cold! We didn’t have any snow accumulation but a few flakes did fall. I had the meat, veggie and enchilada sauce made up. After a day of shopping at a few stores in town, throwing this together was so quick. You will need to make up the sauce first so start with that. While that is simmering brown your meat and veggies so they are going at the same time. Also, if you haven’t simmered tomato based sauces, soups, etc, they pop so be careful. My stove was a mess after making this. I like to serve my kids bowls with crushed organic blue tortilla chips. I like cilantro, green onion and avocado on mine. Top with your favorite toppings.
