How To Make Low Carb Chili

Start by taking a large Dutch oven or pot and add olive oil into the pot. Add in your onions and ground beef and cook on medium heat. You want to chop your meat and cook until no longer pink.

Once your meat is cooked drained the fat off. Then add in your tomatoes, garlic, jalapeno, chili powder, onion powder, cumin, cayenne, and salt and pepper.

Bring mixture to a boil then simmer 30-45 minutes to lock in all the flavors!

Expert Tips

  • Feel free to use ground beef, turkey or even a ground chicken for this chili.
  • If you don’t want to measure out all the spices reach for a chili pack seasoning you all enjoy.
  • Get creative and add two types of meat to change up the flavor a bit.
  • Go ahead and make as much or as little of this easy chili to serve yourself and the family.
  • This chili does freeze well so save back what you don’t plan to eat.
  • The chili reheats really well, so use to meal prep for lunches, dinner, etc.

How to Store Leftovers

If you don’t plan to eat it all right away, store in containers in the fridge for a reheat and enjoy meal. Or opt to place your leftovers in the freezer. If you do the freezer make sure to do an airtight container or freezer bag.

The chili will freeze for up to three months when stored properly. You can reheat from frozen or place in the fridge to thaw overnight for a slow reheat on the stove or microwave.
