When the weather starts to cool down, the first thing I do is make a big pot of this Keto Chili without Beans. This is my favorite kind of chili because it is full of meat, flavor, and super hearty. I like to serve mine with sour cream, cheese, cilantro, and avocado!
There is a time and a place for making keto chili in the Instant Pot and Crockpot so I give you instructions for both of these in the recipe notes.
This pot of keto chili was made on the stove top in a heavy dutch oven and the smell coming from my kitchen as this chili cooked was amazing.
To get started on this chili recipe with no beans, I first browned my stew meat in the heavy pot. Browning adds so much flavor to the chili!

I then removed the meat from the pan and added the onion and red bell pepper. I cooked them until they were soft.
I then added the garlic and the ground beef. After the ground beef was browned, I added the spices and the tomato paste.
Stir Stir Stir, add the stew meat back to the pot and the crushed tomatoes.
stir stir stir Simmer simmer simmer…and tada! Doesn’t that look comforting?
I could eat this everyday, all winter long. If you prefer your chili on the spicy side (I do not) you can add cayenne pepper to taste or hot sauce!
