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

This has loads of flavor and protein and a low amount of carbs and sugar to fit this into my diet right now.

Plus, its got the right amount of heat to clear out the sinuses during this amazing weather we’re having right now! /sarcasm
