Keto Chili On The Stove-Top

Recently I made this easy keto chili recipe, and boy was it delicious, even without beans.

YES, you can eat chili on keto as long as you portion what you eat and count macros.

In Canada, chili is a classic winter favourite in our house, both keto and non-keto chili.

You might also like a turkey chili which is great for keto if you want to swap out the protein.

On the menu, today is an easy keto chili made in a big stove-top pot in 40 minutes.

I’ve also bottled and created a small amount of sugar-free chili seasoning powder.

You’ll also notice down below what you’ll find in a store-bought chili seasoning packet.

Ok, let me show you how I made the keto chili and budget-friendly keto chili seasoning.

The above photo is keto chili loaded with shredded old cheddar cheese and sour cream.

On day two of eating leftover chili, I wanted to dip pork rinds and homemade keto bread.

I toasted the keto bread, added butter and dipped it into the chili. Delicious.

The pork rinds are from Buster Rhinos, which you can order using my discount code.

If you’re not aware, they are by far the best pork rinds in all of Canada.

I dipped the pork rind into the chili and scooped it up with a bit of cheddar, sour cream and jalapenos.

So good.

How Many Carbohydrates Are In Kidney Beans?

Beans and legumes are high in carbohydrates and not allowed on a keto diet.
Variety of Beans For Non-Keto

For all of you who need beans in your chili, add them if you’re not keto.

The nutrition facts for 3.5 ounces (100 grams) of boiled kidney beans are:

  • Calories: 127.
  • Water: 67%
  • Protein: 8.7 grams.
  • Carbs: 22.8 grams.
  • Sugar: 0.3 grams.
  • Fiber: 6.4 grams.
  • Fat: 0.5 grams.

Beans are high in carbohydrates, so it’s not on the list of approved keto foods for those on a keto diet.

That’s pretty much the only difference between the two chili recipes.

A list of all the keto approved foods you can eat on a keto diet.
A list of all the keto-approved foods you can eat on a keto diet.

When Mrs. CBB and I created this list, we wanted to keep it as simple as possible.

Often when someone starts a keto diet, they think they have to buy unique products.

That’s not the case because you’re substituting for other options for what you are no longer buying.

Most of us already have lots of these keto ingredients in our pantry or on our shopping list.

Crock-Pot, Stove-Top or Instant-Pot Keto Chili

Some of you may like to use a crockpot or Instantpot to make chili, but I’m old-school.

Please don’t laugh, but we have had an Instant Pot for over a year and haven’t opened it.

Consumer reviews say the Instant Pot is impressive, but we can’t get away from using the stove-top.

I’ve made chili recipes in both the crockpot and stove-top, and they are delicious.

The only downfall with a crockpot is that sometimes sauces will burn around the edges.

I’m not a massive fan of that; however, I only started using the crockpot when I moved to Canada.

I find it alters the recipe’s taste that I’m attempting to make, and it bugs me.

For anyone with a crockpot, leave me your secrets below, and I’ll give them a try.

In our kitchen, we keep an essential budget-friendly list of kitchen tools for cooking.

Homemade Seasonings Are Cheap To Make

Below is my homemade taco seasoning, which is keto-friendly as well.

If you can stay away from seasoning packets, you’ll be better off.

Besides, making homemade seasonings are cheaper, and you can read the ingredient list.

A typical packet of seasoning at the grocery store ranges in price from $129- $1.99 or on sale $0.89-$0.99.

You’ll also notice down below what you’ll find in a store-bought chili seasoning packet.

Ok, let me show you how I made the keto chili and keto chili seasoning.

You can double or triple the keto chili seasoning below, like in the photo and keep it stored in a jar.

Keto Chili Seasoning Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin

As you can see from the ingredient list on the chili packet, there are many we’d have to Google.

Besides the obvious, I’m sure they are preservatives to keep the product longer on the shelves.

When you make homemade chili seasoning, don’t make more than you need for two meals.

It’s easy to make it fresh when you need it.

Chili Toppings To Jazz It Up

By my calculations, one bowl of 1 cup of my chili recipe equals around 8 net carbs, including the toppings.

I bought these cool mugs at the Dollar Store to write what food is in the bowl.

Not bad for $2.

Other Delicious Chili Toppings

  • Chopped Green Onion
  • Parsley or Corriander
  • Sourcream
  • Franks Red Hot Sauce (or any you like)
  • Sliced Jalapenos
  • Shredded Old Cheddar, mozarella or Parmigianno Regianno Cheese
  • Diced pickles
  • Hot Pepper Rings
  • Saurkrauet
  • Add the chili to a hotdog

What other keto chili toppings can you think of? Comment below, and I’ll add it to the list.

Depending on the chili toppings that you choose, it will alter the net carbs slightly.
