Red Chili
Eating a keto diet doesn’t have to mean missing out on chili. Beans aren’t even necessary to make this chili hearty and comforting. The flavor is packed into the broth, meat, and veggies that give it that classic chili taste without the carbs. This version packs a subtle punch of heat after the initial burst of flavor. Top with your favorite chili add-ins. For a crunch, try crushed pork rinds on top!
