This recipe is going to be a clear winner because it not only keeps you on track and feeling ready to go, but it’s easily enjoyable for tastebuds of any age. Perhaps even extended family or a crowd coming for dinner? This is also great for adjusting amounts and having a simple one-pot offering for all.

In this recipe, the carrots add a delicious hint of sweetness that’s absolutely delicious. But I know it’s not normal to add carrots into chili recipes. So, for more traditional recipes, check out our Keto slow cooker brisket chili recipe or our traditional Keto chili recipe.

3 Ways To Change Up This Keto Chili Recipe

  1. Use eggplants or more tomatoes instead of carrots.
    You can change up this keto chili recipe dramatically by adding in eggplants or more tomatoes instead.
  2. Use bone broth instead of water.
    Introduce more nutrients as well as more flavor to your chili by using bone broth instead of water. Or use chicken broth or beef broth if you don’t have bone broth available. Keep in mind, the more liquid you add, the more chili-stew it will become.
  3. Play around with the spices.
    Also, chili is the perfect opportunity to play with your spice cabinet. Feel free to play with best-loved chili options including (but not limited to): paprika, cumin, parsley, thyme, turmeric, mustard powder, cinnamon.
