I find that people have very strong feelings about chili and whether or not it should include beans. For example, my husband and my kids are not so fond of beans in their chili. If you’re eating a low carb diet, you should probably skip the beans because they’re loaded with carbs.

How to make Keto Chili in the Instant Pot

Below are the directions for making this recipe in the instant pot, but if you don’t have one that’s ok because this can be made on the stove as a one pot recipe, or you could let it simmer in a crockpot.

  1. With Instant Pot set to Sauté add oil. Add onion and cook until soft, 5 minutes.
  2. Stir in garlic and cook until fragrant, 1 minute.
  3. Then add tomato paste, stirring to combine.
  4. Add ground beef and cook, breaking meat up with a wooden spoon, until no longer pink, 7 minutes.
  5. Add broth, corn, red peppers, tomatoes, chili powder, cumin, oregano and cayenne. Season with salt and pepper.
  6. Lock lid and set to Pressure Cook on High for 14 minutes.
  7. Quick release, then remove lid. Serve with desired toppings.

To make one pot keto chili

To make this on the stove start following the directions above – sauté onions and garlic then brown the beef in the pot. Then combine everything and simmer over medium heat for at least 20 minutes before serving. The longer your chili simmers, the better the flavour will be. I recommend one hour or more for the best taste and texture. Add additional broth if too much cooks off during the simmering process.
