Is Chili Low Carb?
Traditional chili is NOT low carb since It’s loaded with various beans and legumes.
However, because I am THAT weird girl who doesn’t want any such thing tainting my slurperty-bowl of (whole30!)chili, I made you this low carb chili recipe accidentally on purpose.
“On purpose” because beans + chili = big fat NO in heart.
“Accidentally” because I’m not a low carb person, but – PYSCH – an Instant pot full of veggies and meat is pretty much as low carb friendly AS IT GETS. And it also a perfect crock pot meal prep recipe so you can have that action for lunch the next day!
How to make No Bean Keto Chili
Pour a splash of oil into your instant pot and set it on the saute setting. Add in the veggies and cook, stirring until they start to soften.
Add in the remaining oil and the ground beef and cook until it has browned. Remove excess oil at this point. Add in this spices and cook, stirring until the beef is completely cooked through and no pink remains.
Add all the ingredients you have left and stir to combine, leaving out the parsley. Cover the instant pot and set it to sealing. Cook on manual high pressure until it is finished cooking and let it steam release naturally.
Set the instant pot onto saute mode again and stir the chili for a few minutes so that the excess liquid can evaporate off. Divide it into bowls, garnish with the pasley and DEVOUR!
Top Tips for making Keto Chili No beans
- Saute it Well: The flavor of the veggies will really shine if you sautee them longer, until they are soft and begin to brown a little. Don’t skip the saute step!
- Evaporate the Excess Water: Once you remove your lid from the instant pot, it’s important to cook the chili on saute mode so that you can get rid of the excess water. It will make the chili richer!
Now that you have a hot and delicious pot of no bean keto chili, it’s time to enjoy it! If you happen to have leftovers, or if you made extra for mealtimes made easy, here’s how to store it. I recommend storing this chili in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. It freezes really well too- just store it in a freezer safe container in the freezer and it should last up to 3 months this way!
A bowl of this chili only has 11g of carbs! Which is much better than it’s usual, bean-filled counter part!
This chili sure is! It’s loaded with veggies and ground beef for a protein punch that will keep you full and fueled without the bloated feeling that usually comes after chili 😉
If you want to make this on the stove top, simply follow the same directions for sauteing the ingredients. Instead of cooking on manual in the Instant Pot, just bring everything to a boil and then reduce the heat to simmer for 30 minutes or so, until the chili has thickened! Easy!
