Low Carb Chili Recipe

Updated: Feb 21, 2020

It's so cold outside. What better way to stay warm on days like this, than with a nice bowl warm bowl of chili. I have a big family. My husband and I are caring for 5 humans and a dog... that's a lot of mouths to feed. I am living the ketogenic life. which means that I get about 65% calories from fat, 25% from protein,10% from carbs. So I needed to create a chili that is more versatile. For example, I added a small amount of kidney beans, so if you are keto, you may want to avoid the beans. I personally have about a 1/4 cup of beans and I pick out the rest if there's more than that. Trust me, I will literally measure out my beans, but you don't have to go this far. I love this recipe and I am so happy to be able to share it with you.
