Easy Keto Chili

Pin recipeFollow us 50.2k

This chili recipe uses both minced beef and sirloin steak. It's full of flavour and really filling, especially when served with my Low-carb Tortillas or Nachos. For really bold flavours, make the chili ahead, refrigerate and serve the next day. All the spices will blend together and make the flavour more intense. This hearty chili is a staple in my house!

Ingredients (makes 4-6 servings)

Try with:
  • Low-carb Tortillas / Nachos + 1.5 g net carbs per serving
  • Cauli-rice - a cup per serving (120 g / 4.2 oz) +3.6 g net carbs

When looking for ingredients, try to get them in their most natural form (organic, without unnecessary additives).


  1. Peel and dice the onion and garlic. Place the onion and garlic on a pan greased with ghee and cook over a medium-high heat until fragrant and lightly golden. Mix to prevent burning.
  2. Dice the sirloin into 1-inch pieces and add to the pan together with the minced beef. Cook over a medium-high heat until browned from all sides.
  3. Mix all the dry spices: chili powder, cumin, paprika, cocoa powder, black pepper and dried oregano.
  4. Add the dry spices, tomato puree and bay leaves to the pan with the beef. Season with salt and mix well.
  5. Pour in the coconut aminos, fish sauce and bone broth.
  6. Reduce the heat, cover the pan with lid and simmer for about 45 minutes or until the meat is tender.
  7. Halve, deseed and slice the green pepper and add it to the pan. Cover with the lid and gently simmer for about 10 minutes.
  8. When done, take off the heat and set aside. Remove the bay leaves (if you used whole). Once chilled, store in the fridge for up to 5 days.
  9. Serve with shredded cheese on top. Try with Low-carb Tortillas / Nachos or Cauli-rice. Enjoy!

It would be so helpful if the nutrition info for your recipes were in your app, which I use. I doubled the recipe and can't tell exactly what proportion of the total my serving was. I would love to be able to enter my portion size in cups or ounces.


Hi Sadie, the Easy Keto Chili is in the app (and all of the other blog meals as well).
You can "clone" any meal directly in the Custom Meals. Search for "chili" > then tap on the meal you want to clone > tap on the "clone button" on the top, next to the "edit" button that looks like a pen. You can then adjust all the ingredients as you wish (you can use cups or ounces). I hope this helps!


Hi... Is the optional cup of black coffee to be enjoyed while cooking or to be included at some point in the recipe?


Hi Len, that's for cooking it - together with bone broth Smile


Hi Martina
Could you please specify how many grams of green pepper to use in this recipe.


Thanks for spotting that - it's all listed now (240 grams, 2 medium peppers).


Hi Martina
I cannot see in ingredients list green pepper but in the cooking instruction there is a green pepper. Could you please specify the quantity of it.
Thank you in advance.


Can I use tomato sauce instead of purée? What's the difference?


Hi Sarah, tomato puree is the same as tomato paste which is a lot more concentrated that tomato sauce. I hope this helps Smile


Quite spicy, VERY TASTY!! Love it! Thanks for sharing Smile


Thank you Katie!
