Is chili keto?
Chili comes in many forms and recipe combinations and can be made keto. Many traditional chili recipes include beans. This low carb chili recipe doesn’t include beans, but instead includes fresh spices creating bold flavors.
Are beans keto?
Beans are not usually included in a keto diet. The keto diet is based on staying within a certain net carb range and focusing on consuming a high amount of healthy fats. If you are doing a targeted keto diet, or you are including higher carb days, you can include beans. Check out my post on Keto 101 for more information.
Are tomatoes keto?
Tomatoes are consumed on a keto diet and are often included in recipes for flavor, color, and for their added nutrients. Most recipes call for small quantities of tomatoes, including this keto chili recipe. Just be sure to purchase canned tomatoes that don’t have any added sugars.
Can I freeze keto chili?
Yes, you can freeze keto chili. Keto chili holds up well in the freezer. I like to portion out the chili into serving before freezing.
Soups, stews, and keto chili are a big part of the keto diet. They can be made in larger batches and frozen for future consumption. Keto chili is full of healthy protein and fats and will keep you full, preventing between meal snacking.
