Spicy Shrimp Tortilla SoupI love the fall. Initially, I am sad when it arrives. I love summer also. I think the summer and fall are my two favorite seasons. However, fall turns into winter, and that is one season I can do without! So, to make me warm and happy all fall and winter long, I comfort myself with warm satisfying meals!

To keep it lower carb, I substituted mushrooms for the bean you find in a tortilla soup. You could also use chopped cauliflower if you don’t like mushrooms. I went with mushrooms felt there would be more substance in the soup than there would be if I had used with cauliflower.

Let me tell you a little bit aboutRao’s Homemade Marinara Sauce.  I first came across this product when I started following the keto diet. It was a great fit macro wise and when I tasted it I was hooked. This sauce is a made with ingredients you can find right in your kitchen. It is all natural with no artificial flavors, color, or sweeteners. I love it and it has been my go-to sauce since I discovered it last year.

Low Carb Spicy Shrimp Soup with tortilla Strips, avocado, cilantro, jalapeno, red cabbage, and fresh lime

Several years ago, my former daughter in law brought chili to our home and it was so good that I had to make her recipe. When she told me what her secret ingredient was I was surprised and wondered why hadn’t I thought of that!  Her secret was marina sauce! Since then I have used it myself in making chili. It saves on simmering time and adds so much flavor to your pot! You can also use Rao’s Homemade Marinara Sauce in your family recipes for lasagna, goulash, and pizza sauce as well as this Low Carb Spicy Tortilla Shrimp Soup!
