Easy Keto Chili (low carb + no bean chili)

This hearty keto chili features tons of meat, peppers, spices and tomatoes! At just 8.5 net carbs per serving this low carb, no bean chili will a family favorite!

We take our chili pretty seriously here! My all time favorite is this Turkey Chili. It is hearty, loaded with flavor and perfect for the fall season. However, since it is loaded with beans and swimming in tomato juice it just doesn’t work with my keto diet. I started experimenting with a keto chili a few weeks ago and I did not have high hopes. I just didn’t think I could create the same flavors without the carbs. Turns out, I was wrong. Mr. Maebell and I have been debating if we like this keto version even MORE than our regular go to chili! 

What is in Keto Chili?

Most soups, stews and chilis are based on the same formula. A protein, vegetable, carb, and some sort of liquid. The tricky part about keto versions is creating a hearty enough dish without the carbs. This keto chili features two pounds of meat, peppers, tomatoes and a rich beef broth spiked with tomato sauce. It is the ultimate hearty, protein packed dinner! 

How many net carbs are in Keto Chili?

This easy keto chili comes to just 8.5 net carbs per bowl. Which is far below a traditional chili recipe! You can top your chili with some sharp shredded cheddar, green onions and sour cream, which is my favorite combo!  Some great low carb topping ideas are:
