This keto chili recipe is the perfect low carb option for a quick and delicious weekday meal.

Compared to my other Instant Pot chili recipe, this version doesn’t include black or pinto beans. Did you know that 1 tablespoon of raw pinto beans had 8 grams of total carbohydrates? If you are trying to cut carbs, that’s a lot!

The best part about this keto chili recipe is that it’s so meaty and filling that you probably won’t even miss the beans. I didn’t!

If you don’t have an Instant pot, you can still make this chili. Instead, use your slow cooker to make this easy beef chili– just make sure to omit the beans to keep this meal keto-friendly!

How To Cook Instant Pot Keto Chili Without Beans

Put all of the ingredients into the Instant Pot. Make sure to break up the ground meat with a large spoon and mix all of the ingredients together before you seal it. 

If you want to add a boost of flavor, brown the ground beef before adding it into the pot.

Close the Instant Pot lid and make sure to turn the valve to a sealing position. Press the “Pressure Cook” or “Manual” button and set the time to 20 minutes on HIGH pressure.

When the chili is all done cooking, push the pressure release to open and naturally let out the steam for about 5 minutes. 

Once you take off the lid, give the chili a good couple of stirs before using a ladle to serve it into bowls. Top it off with some of the suggested toppings mentioned below!

Suggested Toppings For Low Carb Chili 

You might have seen a bunch of other recipes where the chili is piled on high by all these other yummy toppings but are wondering which ones are keto-friendly.

These are the toppings I suggest you use that I know are low carb:

  • Shredded cheese
  • Chopped avocado
  • Sour cream

What To Serve With This Keto Chili Recipe

I am a big believer that a bowl of chili on its own shows how good it actually is… BUT, sometimes, you just want a little something with your chili!

I, for one, love chili cheese fries but being this is a keto-friendly recipe, I ended up paring them up with these low carb zucchini fries I cooked in the air fryer. Wow! It was amazing and it blew my tastebuds out of the water!

Here are a couple of other foods I paired up with this beanless chili:

If you are not following the keto lifestyle, you should try this cornbread recipe I made in my Instant Pot! The sweetness of the cornbread goes perfectly with the spice of the chili.

Either way, you can’t really go wrong with any of these options!
