Is Chili Con Carne Low-Carb & Keto Friendly?

The traditional way of making chili con carne is not low carb or keto-friendly but keto chili con Carne is. Normally Chili Con Carne contains kidney beans, rice, and sugar.

None of those ingredients is low carb but as you can see in our recipe above we make ours a little differently so that it is perfect for your Keto diet.

  1. I have been pre-cooking ground beef for a long time – it is just so much easier to do it once and be done with if for a while. Sometimes I cook a batch that is just plain ground beef – and then I’ll do another batch and add green peppers and onions. I also store mine in freezer zip lock bags due to the storage issue – much easier to store flat.
