  • 2 lbs. ground Beef
  • 8 Slices of Bacon
  • 1/2 Yellow Onion diced small
  • 1 Jalapeno minced
  • 1 Poblano Pepper diced small
  • 2-3 Garlic Cloves minced (can sub for powder or extract for fewer carbs)
  • 2-3 Chipotle Peppers I used canned
  • 2, 14 oz. can Fire Roasted Tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp. Chili Powder
  • 2 tsp. Cumin
  • 1 tsp. Paprika
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Pepper
  • 1/2 tsp Cayenne


  • 1. In a small bowl, combine the spices and set them aside.
  • 2. In a blender or food processor, add the fire roasted tomatoes, chipotle peppers, and spices. Pulse till mixed and set aside.
  • 3. Slice the bacon into pieces and cook in the pot on medium heat until crispy. Render all but a tbsp. of the fat. Add in the diced veggies and cook until tender.
  • 4. Add in the ground beef and cook until it is no longer pink. Pour in the tomato mixture and combine everything thoroughly.
  • 5. Allow the chili to simmer on low heat and for the flavors to marry. If the liquid in the chili seems to reduce down too much, add about 1/4 cup of water and stir it in if needed.
  • 6. Serve the chili with sour cream, cheese, and optional keto tortilla chips or keto corn muffins.


OPTIONAL- 1, 14 oz can Black Soybeans (I used the Eden brand)
