I am trying to do low carb, but didn’t want to give up my love for chili. So I had to find a recipe that I could still handle my craving.

This is the Best Low Carb Chili Recipe!

Tips to make Low Carb Turkey Chili:

  • Try substituting ground turkey for the ground beef. You can also do 1 pound ground beef and 1 pound ground turkey. It’s a great way to save money.
  • I use a small food chopper or processor to quickly and easily chop onions and green peppers. If you do not have one of these, I highly recommend them. They are such a time saver.
  • I usually just chop the entire vegetable and freeze what I don’t need. It’s so nice to be able to just take diced onion or bell peppers out of the freezer for recipes.

How to make keto chili in the slow cooker:

Occasionally I will use my crock pot to make this recipe. I just ground the beef first and put everything in the crock pot. I love meal prepping my meals and freeze them so all I have to do on the day of cooking is put in the crock pot.

Then you just cook on low for 4 hours or high for 2 hours. It’s so easy and a great way to have this meal ready and waiting after work.

How to make Low carb chili in the Instant pot:

I also like making this low carb chili in the instant pot. Everything can be done rith in the instant pot.

  • Just brown the beef in the instant pot using the saute setting.
  • Add all the ingredients and place lid on and set to sealing.
  • Next, set pressure for 5 minutes. Do a quick release and enjoy.

Using the instant pot has been a game change for my family. It is perfect to use when I forget to set something out.

How to freeze keto chili:

Chili is the perfect meal to freeze. I usually try and make a double batch when I make chili so I can easily freeze for another meal.

I love to freeze this chili to have for quick lunches. It’s so handy to have individual portions on the freezer. These are the perfect size for my husband to grab for his lunch. It saves money and I know that he is getting a good lunch and not hitting the drive-thru.

I prefer to freeze this chili in freezer bags so I can stack them easily. It takes up less space and I can stack several bags.

Variation ideas:

Chili is one of those meals that you can change it for your preference.

  • Omit one can of tomatoes to lower the carbs
  • Stir in a can of green chilies to a bit of spice
  • Try adding in a little bit of cream cheese before serving.
  • Stir in ½ cup sour cream before the chili is completely done.

Chili Topping Ideas:

You can still have some amazing toppings even if you are following a low carb diet. Here are some of my favorites:

  • Shredded cheese – Make sure you shred your own. The bag shredded cheese contains added ingredients.
  • Chopped Green Onions
  • Slice Avocado – I love avocado and really love it on chili.
  • Jalapeño Slices – I always add a few on my chili. I like the extra spice it gives.
  • Sour Cream
  • Guacamole
  • Corn Chips – Not Low Carb
  • Tortilla Chips

Chili Wraps:

We also love making frito chili wraps. This is one of my favorite ways to eat chili especially for lunch or a snack. If you are doing low carb, they have low carb tortilla’s and I would just omit the fritos.

Put your tortilla down, top with chili and shredded cheese. Then wrap up your tortilla for a amazing meal.

Understanding this Keto diet:

First of all, I know it can seem overwhelming initially. However, once you understand the Keto lifestyle it is very simple. You can find lots of resources here including a beginner’s guide to Keto.

It’s a lot to take in but basically the ketogenic diet is a diet high in fat with healthy fats for weight loss. The diet calls for a lot of nut butters, peanut butter and low or no carb snacks called fat bombs.

You will also want to keep things sugar free. Oils like coconut oil, olive oil and mct oil are used.

A lot of recipes call for cheese or cream cheese. Almond flour or pork rinds can be used for a coating or batter that fits into the ketogenic diet. Once you get used to this diet, many report that it becomes a lifestyle and they really like it. As a result, many people report higher levels of energy and that they just feel better!

Plus, weight loss is fairly easy while also filling full and satisfied. This is a key component as to why it works for so many.

  1. I just entered all of these ingredients and portions on the carb manager app after I already ate a serving. According to the calculator this recipe has 25 net carbs.

  2. I’m anxious to make this but not seeing the recipe for the chili seasoning. Help! Thanks so much!

  3. When I added all of the ingredients to the recipe on my Carb Manager app the nutritional information came out MUCH higher in calories and carbs than your nutritional information showed. It was still delicious however, I was wondering how you figured it.
