Keto Chili – Low Carb, Big Flavor

Keto Chili

Chili is something my family is pretty serious about. It’s been a challenge to perfect the recipe so that it suits all of our tastes and we had it perfect. Down to a science. And then – We Went Keto. The Keto way of eating is great and I love it but it meant giving up our old Chili recipe! That was a sad realization – however, we didn’t stay sad for long! With a few twists and tweaks, I managed to turn our old Chili recipe into a Keto Chili Recipe. My husband loved it, my kids asked why I hadn’t made it sooner and I honestly couldn’t tell much of a difference. So we are going to call Keto Chili a win and now you can try it too!

Keto Chili. Perfect for a Keto way of life< />


  1. that looks very delicious. I will defo test it out, however as I am keto I will ditch the beans.

    1. We are Keto as well, black soy beans fit into keto macros, they are very high fiber and super low carb.

  2. Looks sooo good, can’t wait to try it. I love you paired it with Whisps… one of my favorite keto snacks.

  3. I’ve never been a fan of chili, because of all of the beans in in, but I might have to try this because of the lack of beans in it.

  4. So, I was on keto last week and dropped 3 lbs in three days but then I went back to eating crap. Seeing this recipe definitely inspired me to go back to keto! Are we following each other on Twitter? I’m @chrisandeena – I’d love to know more about this diet!

      I will look you up on twitter! Keto has been amazing for our family. The first few weeks are the hardest but once you start to feel the effects following this way of eating becomes really easy!

  5. This looks tasty. Not come across this style before but I think will give this a try. Thanks for the share.

  6. Just a heads up, Eden recently changed their labels to say that their black soybeans are 5 grams of net carbs per 1/2 cup serving instead of 1 gram of carbs (one half-cup serving is now listed as 11 grams of carbs and 6 grams of fiber). The company says they have not changed their recipe but that the FDA changed labeling laws. The numbers listed online are from their original labels (even the FDA says they use numbers provided by manufacturers).

    One can of Eden organic black soybeans used to be 3 net carbs according to their label, and now their label says it’s 18 net grams of carbs.

    Since they say the ingredients are the same as always, I’m kind of suspicious that they have had incorrect numbers all this time and people have inadvertently consuming way more carbs than they thought. The national nutrition database says they get their numbers from the manufacturers, so it’s Eden’s original numbers that are still online and used by most sites/apps.
