There’s a lot that you can’t eat on the restrictive high-fat, low-carb ketogenic diet, but chili is one dish that can be made keto-friendly. Traditional chili using kidney beans can be adapted to include low-carb vegetables like cauliflower. Or whip up a meaty version by tossing some diced tomatoes, ground beef and bell pepper into a dutch oven for your weekly meal prep.
Although chili is a hearty meal year-round, you can’t go wrong with a giant bowl during the cooler fall and winter months. Thankfully, there are plenty of keto-approved recipes packed with fat and protein that are low on carbs. Try one of these keto chili recipes for dinner tonight—you’ll want to make some extra to have as leftovers!
1) Keto White Chicken Chili
This spicy and creamy chicken chili recipe by Hey Keto Mama is perfect for your weekly meal prep since it’s a freezer-friendly meal. About 1 cup of chili will have 30 grams of fat and only 1 gram of net carbs, and there’s a ton of filling protein (39 grams) to tide you over until your next meal. To make it thicker, you can add a thickening agent, such as xanthan gum, but the meat and veggies will make it hearty enough without.
