  • 1.5 lbs ground beef
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 bell pepper, diced
  • 1 can (14 oz) crushed tomatoes
  • 1 can (14 oz) diced tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 2 cups beef broth
  • 1 can (14 oz) black soybeans (or kidney beans for moderate keto)
  • 2 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (adjust to taste)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional toppings: shredded cheese, sour cream, chopped green onions, and sliced jalapeños


  1. Brown the Beef: In a large pot over medium heat, brown the ground beef until no longer pink. Drain any excess fat.
  2. Sauté the Aromatics: Add diced onion, minced garlic, and diced bell pepper to the pot. Sauté until they become tender.
  3. Add Tomatoes and Paste: Stir in the crushed tomatoes, diced tomatoes, and tomato paste. Mix well.
  4. Season the Chili: Add chili powder, ground cumin, paprika, dried oregano, cayenne pepper, salt, and pepper. Adjust the spice level to your preference.
  5. Simmer: Pour in the beef broth and bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover, and simmer for 30-40 minutes to allow the flavors to meld.
  6. Add Beans: Rinse and drain the black soybeans (or kidney beans if using) and add them to the chili. Simmer for an additional 5-10 minutes.
  7. Serve: Ladle the keto chili into bowls and garnish with your favorite low-carb toppings like shredded cheese, sour cream, green onions, or jalapeños.

Note: If you prefer a thicker chili, you can let it simmer longer to reduce the liquid.
