Ketogenic Chili Recipe

Fall is here and it is time to whip out the crock pot or power pressure cooker and whip up some comfort meals! Chili is a fall favorite. It goes well with football season and can be very nutritious, but can be very high in carbohydrates. This recipe swaps out the high carbohydrate beans for low carbohydrate vegetables while at the same time retaining the wonderful flavor. You’ll love this ketogenic chili recipe! It is easy and simple and makes quite a few servings.

Side note: I am not sure how many servings it makes, probably about 8-10 servings. I fill up my power pressure cooker with vegetables and then enjoy chili meals for about 2-3 days. If you have a family, it will probably be one meal and one meal of leftovers.


  • 1 medium eggplant
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 1/2 cup chopped carrots
  • 1 large chopped onion
  • 3 scallions chopped
  • 5 mushrooms chopped
  • 1 bell pepper chopped
  • 2 cans of diced tomatoes
  • 1 lb. grassfed ground beef
  • 4 tablespoons chili pepper
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt (I tend to season it more after it is cooked. I’ve made the mistake of over salting before!)

Chop the vegetables. In an electric pressure cooker, combine all ingredients. Set it to cook for about 40 minutes. If you are using a slow cooker, set to cook on medium for 2-4 hours. Once it has cooked, allow it to cook for 10 minutes. Serve and enjoy.

Fun low carb toppings for low carbohydrate chili:

  1. grated cheddar cheese
  2. chopped green onions
  3. sour cream and green onions
  4. Avocado slices

Great ketogenic chili side dishes that you can serve:

  1. Tossed salad
  2. Steamed spinach
  3. Steamed broccoli and cauliflower
  4. Sauteed zucchini, mushroom and onions

    I love how you offer a low carb option but by using the same principal ingredients. This means you can enjoy your meal in the same way without worrying about carb overload.

    P.S. I am in 100% agreement with food preps that keep giving… lasting 2-3 days of giving. =)

  3. I absolutely love chili and I love trying new recipes. Being that I am just starting a keto diet, this is perfect timing that I found this recipe! I like that this is also low in carbohydrates. Perfect recipe to try. Thanks for sharing!

  4. I love the idea of using eggplant in a chili – it’s one of my all time favorite veggies! I will be trying this in my instant pot, which is perfect for these types of recipes!

  5. I love chili and eggplant, to be honest with you! However, until now I haven’t had a way to combine the two. I know this is a stupid question but how long is it good for if I make a bunch of it at once. I like to cook a lot at once and eat in within the week? Is that too long?
