Keto Bacon Cheeseburger Soup (Whole30 + Dairy Free)

January 15, 2021 | Author: Ashley McCrary

A creamy bacon cheeseburger soup that is filled with ground beef, tomatoes, onions, beef broth, jicama, nutritional yeast and topped with shredded lettuce, bacon and pickles slices. The perfect clean keto, whole30 and paleo soup. 6 NET CARBS per serving


My NEW Keto Bacon Cheeseburger Soup may be my favorite soup of all time. It tastes identical to a real life cheeseburger, but is clean and dairy free. In addition, I used jicama in place of potatoes to give the soup a little crunch and it doesn’t disappoint. This soup makes living healthy super easy and delicious.

In place of cheese, I used my dairy free homemade queso. To make, I mix hot water with nutritional yeast, cashews and xanthan gum to get a thick and creamy dairy free queso that has a close taste to real life cheese. It’s perfect for dipping or to add in soups and casserole to get a creamy and cheesy texture and taste.

  • If you do not have a high-speed blender, soak cashews in hot water for at least 2 hours before making the queso. Drain and combine with water and nutritional yeast in a regular blender, as directed in the instructions in the recipe card
  • Be sure to brown the ground meat well. This will give additional flavor to the soup.
  • Using HOT water and xanthan gum is a must when making the homemade queso.
  • Allow the soup to simmer on low for at least an hour to cook the jicama. I like to have a little crunch so I only let mine simmer for 30 minutes.
  • Top with shredded lettuce, bacon and pickles to get the full cheeseburger experience and flavor.

Keto Bacon Cheeseburger Soup

  • Total Time: 1 hour 10 minutes
  • Yield: 7 servings 1x


  • 2 lbs. ground beef
  • 115oz can diced tomatoes. drained
  • 1 tablespoon ghee
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced 
  • ½ cups unsweetened coconut milk, canned
  • 3 tablespoons pickle juice
  • 1 cup chopped jicama
  • 2 tablespoons yellow mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 3 1/2 cups beef broth
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Cooked bacon, pickles and shredded lettuce for topping

Dairy Free Queso

  • 1 cup hot water
  • 1/4 cup cashews
  • ¾ cups nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum


  1. In a large pot, add the ghee along with the chopped onions and garlic. Cook for 2 minutes then add the ground beef. Cook until completely browned. Around 6-7 minutes. 
  2. Transfer the beef broth, coconut milk, diced tomatoes (drained), mustard, pickle juice, paprika and jicama. Stir and bring to a bowl then reduce heat to a simmer. 
  3. While the soup is cooking, make the dairy free queso by adding the hot water, cashews, nutritional yeast and xanthan gum. Blend on high speed for about 20-30 seconds until the mixture becomes thick. 
  4. Pour this mixture into the soup and stir until combined. As this heats the queso will melt into the soup. 
  5. Allow to simmer on low heat at least 45 minutes to an hour to cook the jicama. I actually like the crunch of the jicama not being completely cooked, so I will only cook 30 minutes. 
  6. Before serving top with shredded lettuce, bacon and pickle slices. 


  • Hot water and xanthan gum are key for thickening the Queso. Let it blend on high speed at least 20 seconds. As it blends the hot water and xanthan gum will thicken the mixture.  If you don’t have a high speed blender, soak the cashews in hot water for 30 minutes and drain before blending in a regular blender
  • Crockpot– Brown the ground beef, onions and garlic. Add that along with all of the other ingredients except then homemade dairy free queso to the pot and cook on low for 6-7 hours. About 20 minutes before serving, add the homemade queso and mix together. 
  • If you need a sub for xanthan gum, feel free to use 1/2 tsp tapioca flour dissolved in a tablespoon of water. This will however have more carbs than xanthan gum. 
  • Storage: Will last one week in the fridge in an air tight container. 
  • Nutrition is calculated with 1/2 slice of bacon/ 6 NET CARBS per serving

    WOW, what can I even say about this soup. Lots of things, actually. First of all, I was skeptical about this. I knew my husband and I would love all the ingredients, but how would it all come together?! It’s so wonderful. I actually used 1 cup russet potato since I am doing low carb, but not Keto and I couldn’t find jicama near me. Turned out amazing! I topped ours with a little sharp cheddar and pickles/bacon like it calls for. GO FOR IT! Make this soup. You will not regret it. FULL of flavor. Thank you Ashley!!

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      So happy you loved it. Thank you

  2. Elaine says:

    Do you have any alternative ideas for the cashew queso? I have a food allergy to cashews.

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      You could try removing and adding a cup of nutritional yeast instead.

  3. Katie says:

    My husband just told me this is the best dinner I have ever made! The flavor was amazing and the soup was so filling. 10/10!

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      Wow Katie! This is so nice….Thank you

  4. Katie says:

    This was wonderful! I am not doing keto, so I used 1 large gold potato. I also don’t have a great blender, so I used Siete queso…and it was perfect! Husband loved it and said it was super filling!

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      WOW! Katie, this is great. I love hearing how you tailor recipes to meet your needs. Thank you or sharing and so happy you enjoyed

  5. Megan says:

    Mac….this is glorious! Thank you! First of all, the smell alone while it’s cooking is amazing, and it satisfies my cravings for cheeseburgers while keeping on “plan.” Thanks!

  6. Rebecca says:

    Such a great combination of flavors. We loved this and it will definitely be on repeat!

  7. Ashley says:

    Just made this soup last night and had leftovers for lunch today. Very tasty! I omitted the coconut milk, I don’t always love the flavor in savory dishes. I think turnip roots would be a good swap for jicima to still keep it low carb too since it isn’t always easy to find. Thanks for the great recipes!

  8. Cassie K says:

    I made a 1/2 batch for lunches this weekend and am wishing I would of made a full amount. It is delicious and I love that it is dairy free!

  9. Lindsey says:

    Made this soup this week for mine and my husband’s lunches. I had never used jicama before and was skeptical but it turned out amazing. Best keto soup recipe I have found it a long time. Delicious!

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      WOW! Thanks Lindsey for this great comment.

  10. Laura says:

    This soup is so delicious! I can’t wait for lunchtime tomorrow so I can have it again! I feel like the flavors will meld even better reheated. Thanks for the great recipes!

  11. Isabelle says:

    I’ve made this recipe twice, once with jicama and once with potatoes- both times were so delicious! This recipe is SO full of flavor! The first time I made it was only 3 weeks ago and my fiancé has asked for this so many times since! I highly recommend this recipe!

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      This made my day. So happy to hear. Thank you
