There’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good chili when you’re craving comfort food. Am I right guys?

This Keto Chili Con Carne is so easy and perfect for batch cooking. Whether you’re a keto beginner or have been following a low-carb diet for many years, this chili promises not to disappoint.

Delicately spiced, it's super tasty but won’t burn your mouth off. If you’re a hottie, feel free to crank up the chili meter! Taste first, and then go to town. The sour cream or yogurt topping is optional and will take away some of the heat. If you're dairy-free you could use unsweetened coconut yogurt or just top the chili with sliced avocado and serve with lime wedges.

Serve with low-carb veggie sides such as cauliflower rice for a traditional keto dinner, spiralized zucchini or even shirataki noodles for an ultra low-carb dinner recipe.

I love this Super Simple Keto Chili smothered all over low-carb roasted vegetables, keto nachos or how about using this recipe to make low-carb Chili Cheese Fries?? OMG another must make… quick bookmark!

Food is one of life’s most powerful medicines. I’m a true testament that once you find the right approach for you, you can overcome poor health through the healing power of food.

I believe the secret to radiant health starts and ends with a healthy gut so my recipes are all grain, gluten and refined sugar free. Most are also dairy-free.
