Simple, Classic Chili - Main Picture

This is my mom’s classic chili recipe that I’ve eaten since I was a little girl. Now that I’m grown with a family of my own, it’s the recipe I make for them too. I’ve just made a few tweaks to make it Paleo & Keto compliant.

It’s a traditional, classi chili recipe that’s easy, filling, and comforting when its cold outside.  It’s made with ground beef and simple blend of homemade spices, tomatoes, and chilis – you will never even miss the beans!

While most chili recipes are naturally gluten free, not all are Paleo and Keto. Not only do many chili recipes rely on beans – which are not paleo, keto, or low carb, some people put masa (corn flour found in the Mexican food section) in their chili to give it an earthy, corn-like taste. But even when we did eat corn, my entire family prefered it without.

Also, if you’d like your chili to have some heat to it, just add 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper, I never do this because we don’t really like spicy food. I hope this recipe becomes a staple in your family like it is in ours.  😊

    Another goodie! We also add diced eggplant. Put it in when you add the meat. It soaks up the good fats from the meat cooking and turns soft. Basically, its the beans in the chili. 🙂 (Oh, and smoked paprika is awesome in chili.)

  2. This looks like my husband’s kind of chili – he really doesn’t like beans. I’d be tempted to sneak in some veggies on him and the idea mentioned above of eggplant sounds really tasty!
