3 Low Carb Chili Recipes to Heat Up National Chili Month

Low carb chili

Low carb chili might sound like an oxymoron—at least for anyone who’s accustomed to chili recipes stuffed with beans and pasta. Ask a chili purist, however, and they’ll tell you that true chili contains meat, dried chilies, spices, and no beans or noodles. That’s the way it’s made in Texas, the state where it was born in the mid-nineteenth century.[1] That’s good news for Atkins dieters looking to celebrate National Chili Month, which falls in October. We share our top three beanless chili recipes below—enjoy!

If you need a quick chili recipe, this is your go-to. It takes just 10 minutes to prep and 15 to cook. The last five minutes might be the most important: that’s when you sprinkle on shredded Monterey Jack cheese and place under the broiler for a warm and melty topper. One serving has 28.6g protein, 19.6g fat, 0.9g fiber, 3.3g net carbs, and 313 calories.
