Low Carb Chili
I can’t believe I haven’t shared this recipe with you yet! It was totally accidental, so I hope you can find it in your chili-loving heart to forgive me. I’ve been making this low carb chili recipe and a few variations of it since I first started low carb.
Chili was always one of my favorite dishes so I had to find a way to incorporate into my low carb life. After messing with a few recipes I had I finally was able to get the perfect low carb to flavorful ratio.
When I first started testing chili recipes I was doubtful I’d be able to keep the same tasty flavors I knew and loved. But boy did it turn out to be rich and delicious. It blew my mind!
When it comes down to it, the main punch comes from the seasoning that it’s name derives from – chili powder. When added to the ground beef, onions, tomatoes, bell pepper, and celery, your in chili heaven.
