Creamy Salsa Chicken

Jump to Recipe

Creamy Salsa Chicken came to light when my husband first tried Keto a few years ago. It’s creamy, flavorful, spicy, and is low carb. This Creamy Salsa Chicken recipe makes enough for two. Double or even triple the recipe if cooking for more.

Ingredients include: sour cream, salsa, jalapeno, cheese, garlic, onion, and seasonings. It’s a fit for a low carb or normal diet and is great served over either rice or cauliflower rice.
