Keto Recipes – Low Carb Chilli

One of the things I’ve missed since going keto is a warming bowl of chilli, but with a bit of experimentation I’ve managed to combine two of my loves – keto and slow cooking! Obviously it’s sans-beans because they’re all just too high in carbs but with the celery and tomatoes, it didn’t really feel like it was lacking too much. This recipe serves 8 people, can be frozen for eating at a later date, and one portion is 10.7g carbs, 11.2g fat, 35.4g protein and just 288 calories, making it the perfect keto dinner.

We served ours with Bare Naked “rice”, a konjac-based rice substitute which comes in a sachet and can be microwaved just like normal rice, except a serving is just 0.1g carbs and only ten calories!

Next time I would also perhaps add some chopped pickled jalapenos to give it a bit more bite, but it was still really tasty exactly as it was. Let me know if you give this a go, or if you have your own variation of this dish that we could try!
