Keto Friendly Chili FAQS
You might have a few questions about making low carb keto turkey chili so I figured I’d answe a few of them for you:
Can I make this in the slow cooker? While I have not tried this, I am sure you could. You would still want to follow all the directions to cook your veggies and turkey. But then you could throw everything into the slow cooker to simmer. I would imagine you would cook it on high for about 3-4 hours, until it’s nice and thick.
Can I change up the meat? – Sure thing! Like the low carb keto chili recipe, you could totally use ground beef. I’ve even made it with a mix of beef and pork!
Can I add beans? Of course, you can! When I made Cajun Instant Pot Chili and vegan chili, I liked chili beans to add some bulk and fiber. I would recommend using chili beans here as well if you’re not looking for it to be a no bean chili!
It’s the kind of nourishing comfort food that gets you through these cold nights AND takes you through your next desk lunch.
