Jambalaya is one of my favorite Cajun dishes to make. But when you need to cut carbs out of diet converting this to Jambalaya soup is a great way to still enjoy this dish!

Jambalaya Soup that is low carb and perfect for a keto or any low carb diet. Loaded with shrimp, andouille sausage, chicken and the perfect amount of heat!

Cutting out the rice, or any flour to thicken this up to a gumbo, makes this a great way to convert jambalaya to something that can fit into a keto or any low carb diet.

Instead of cooking chicken from scratch try using a rotisserie chicken cooked from the grocery store.

I went ahead and split the darker meat for a batch of jambalaya soup for myself and the white meat for a batch of chicken dumpling soup for the family
