Instant Pot No-Bean Chili – Keto and Low Carb

Instant Pot Chili - Keto and Low Carb

Making chili in your Instant Pot could not be easier!  I use a blend of grass-fed beef and ground sausage, along with my Homemade Chili Seasoning Mix.  Jalapeño peppers give it a little spicy kick and great flavor!  While I wrote this recipe to be cooked in an Instant Pot, you can certainly make it in any pressure cooker, or even stove top.  

There are so many toppings that you can serve this No-Bean Chili with and still keep it Keto friendly and low carb!  Those toppings include sour cream, cilantro, jalapeño peppers, cheddar cheese, onions and scallions.  I use a combination of these and they really add a nice finishing touch!

Ingredients

2 pounds of grass-fed beef (I use 85%)

1 pound ground sausage

30 ounces canned crushed tomatoes

1/4 cup tomato paste

1 cup chicken stock (see my homemade chicken stock recipe here)

2 jalapeño peppers, seeded, rib removed and minced (more if you like more heat)

1/2 onion, chopped

2 garlic cloves, minced

1/4 cup chili seasoning (see my recipe here)

1 tablespoon Brown Swerve

1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon ground pepper

Olive oil

Preparation

Turn the Instant Pot to the “Sauté” setting and add in a little olive oil.

I love this idea! My husband, however – just asked if we can put beans in it. 🙂
