Low Carb Chili Ingredients
MEAT – Buy lean ground beef because it pairs so well with the lean ground turkey. Don’t forget to brown the meat and drain the juices.
VEGETABLES – Cauliflower is the main vegetable and used to thicken the chili. Use fresh or frozen cauliflower, either iwll work. Bell peppers and onions are added for fabulous color and flavor.
SPICES – This is one of the most important parts of chili and is sometimes neglected, sadly. The combination of spices will make or break any chili recipe. Always use fresh spices for best results!
How To Make Low Carb Stovetop Chili
Have this simmering on the stove and ready for dinner.
- Blend the cauliflower and tomatoes.
- Brown meat as per the recipe below.
- Combine ingredients, bring to a boil, simmer and serve.
Want to try other cuts of beef? Then try beef brisket or chuck. Remember to cut these into bite-sized pieces and let the chili simmer for a little longer to make these cuts of meat a little more tender.
Substitute canned tomatoes with fresh Roma tomatoes. Romas are great because they don’t have a lot of liquid. Use 2 cups of Roma for one 14.5 oz. can.
There are a variety of topping options to choose from. Try it with chopped green onions and a dollop of sour cream or greek yogurt. Enjoy topped with shredded cheese, diced red onions, cilantro or fresh jalapeno chilis.
This meat chili recipe can also be made in the Crock Pot or the Instant Pot. Before adding the meat to the crockpot brown it first on the stove. Let it cook in the pot for 4-5 hours. If making in the Instant pot, brown the meat using the Sauté function and then cook using the Chili button on the pot.
Tips for Chili!
The thing about chili is that it tastes even better when it is made ahead of time because the flavors have a chance to infuse into the meat and cauliflower. Keep it in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3-4 days. To reheat just add it to a pot and cook on low heat until heated through.
Chili is also the best dish to freeze! Make it, cool completely and store in zippered freezer bags. Lay the bag flat until frozen, then stand it on end for quick access in the freezer!
