Eating chili while following the keto diet is a bit different. I’ve made chili for years, but before now, it always included copious amounts of beans. If you’re eating keto, beans have way too many carbs to include in chili. They also contain lectins which are highly inflammatory.
As much as I’ve loved beans in the past, they are now out. Enter my latest recipe for keto carnivore chili, also great for those following Whole 30 (except sub the beer with a cup of water).
This keto chili recipe was born out of what I had in the freezer. Ground beef and diced chuck are pretty typical chili ingredients. But then I had some short ribs frozen! What a revelation. The combination of these three types of meat for a delicious keto chili is amazing.
Triple meat keto chili is a carnivore’s delight. I actually like this version better than any I previously made and that’s saying something! I’ve been making and eating chili for a very long time.
You can, of course, make chili on the cooktop. However, the crock pot is perfect for chili. Slow-cooked and ridiculously simple. Take five minutes to put it in the crockpot before you leave for work in the morning and come home to a delicious and super easy home cooked keto meal.
Triple Meat Keto Carnivore Chili
Three types of meat make this Keto Carnivore chili extra delicious by incorporating different textures.
