For many people a nice warm bowl of chili is a perfect way to warm you up when it is cold outside. Other people will eat it any time of the year, even every week. Some people like it mild, and others like it spicy. It can be a hard dish to pinpoint exactly what the perfect recipe is, because there are just so many opinions on what goes into the dish or doesn’t. Being that this is a Keto Friendly Recipe for Chili, we obviously have to omit the beans (my least favorite part of normal chili anyhow).

If you do not have an Instant Pot, don’t worry, as you can modify the preparation of this dish to make it either on the stove top or in a Crock Pot too.

I have also noticed that many traditional Chili recipes tend to contain Cinnamon, but I chose to leave that out, and went for more of a “Southwestern” style seasoning mix instead. If you like yours different, by all means make it the way you prefer it. I also like to top mine with Shredded Cheddar Cheese and Sour Cream, as well as either Chives or Green Onion (depending on which I have on hand at the time). I will also sometimes add Hot Sauce to it afterwards in my own bowl, so that I can make it as spicy as I want, without committing to make the who batch that spicy for everyone else in the house.
