3 Low Carb Chili Recipes to Heat Up National Chili Month

October 11, 2016

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!
