The Best No-Bean Keto Chili (8 g Carbs) Recipe

This is a great no-bean keto chili recipe. It has all of the flavors you love about chili, without the added carbs. It’s a nice medium-spicy with a tangy, sweet flavor from the tomato paste.

Coming off a few weeks of keto and not eating any beans? Chances are, you’re probably feeling a little fuzzy and hungry. Well, I have the perfect solution for you! This keto chili is perfect for those who want to follow a low-carb, high-fat diet and still eat a complete dinner. It’s packed with all the amazing keto flavors and smells and tastes. It’s also very filling so you’ll probably only have to eat half a bowl to feel full.

To make this keto chili, I mixed a few ingredients from the big pantry and made a healthy, hearty meal. I used extra lean ground beef to help keep this chili filling, but I also added a can of mushrooms and kidney beans to bump the protein and fat up a bit. (I know it may sound strange for a chili to have extra beef, but if you’re a vegetarian, just leave them out)

 no-beans keto chili

It’s been a while since I made a recipe that was keto friendly and didn’t use beans. I’m not a huge fan, I mean, I’ve tried out a bean-free chili in the past, but I don’t think it really turned out that great. It’s not that I hate beans, it’s just that the chili recipes tend to be very bland. Read more about keto chili recipe with zucchini and let us know what you think.
