KETO CHILI Recipe by Four score Living


We love making a big batch of keto chili and you will too once you see how easy it is. Sometimes we’ve even made this twice in one week!

This recipe for low carb chili is in its simplest form and it doesn’t require a lot of ingredients.

We have some step by step photos below showing you how to make keto chili. It’s really very easy.

For this keto chili recipe use half beef and half turkey, but you can use all beef, all turkey, or mix it up with other protein sources like ground chicken, ground bison, or even ground venison.

This is a chili recipe without beans. We know that in some places, chili absolutely doesn’t have beans in it, but in usual chili recipe did include them. If you’re used to chili with beans, you won’t miss them in this flavorful keto recipe.

If you are including higher carb days in your meal plans you can add some black beans or cubed sweet potatoes for a slow carb chili recipe.


Ground Beef and Ground Turkey – Use both meats in chili both for interest and for a bit of a calorie reduction. You can use any type of ground meat that you like in this recipe.

Olive Oil – This basic ingredient helps the process of sauteing the vegetables.

Onion, Bell Pepper – One of each, diced roughly, add tons of homey, warm flavor. Use whatever color bell pepper you have on hand, here used half of a red pepper and half of an orange one.

Cumin – Cumin is a warm, smoky herb that is in most mexican and tex-mex dishes. Chili isn’t quite the same without it.

Chili Powder – One level of heat comes from this spice. You can add more or less depending on how spicy you like things.

Cayenne Pepper – Cayenne is the second level of spice, and complements the other spices nicely.

Paprika – This spice is not so spicy, but it’s warm and delicious.

Salt – Season your Keto Chili with salt while it’s cooking.

Canned Tomatoes – One 15 ounce can of diced tomatoes gives this chili the perfect amount of acidity and color.

Broth – Beef broth or stock is my go-to when making chili, but chicken or vegetable broth works well too.
