IS CHILI KETO?
Traditional chili is not keto friendly because the carbs in beans are way too high. Some might use black soybeans, which are lower in carbs, but this is why we don’t recommend soy.
So, if we wants a keto chili recipe, we would have to make it a chili without beans. That’s really the only way to get rid of too many carbs in chili. Since beans are such a crucial component so we were a little unsure about it.
We are really glad that we decided to try our hands at keto chili without beans because it turned out perfect!
