Low Carb Chili
McCormick Chili Powder
(or create your own)
(or cheat and get a can of diced tomatoes)
Brooks brand chili beans are best but kidney beans are mostly low-carb
at least 20% fat if you are low-carb focused – you need fat in your diet!
tomato paste (8 oz)
optional unless you like thick chili/stew
add to taste
Sharp cheddar recommended, chef’s choice
Brown hamburger in pan while chopping onions, dicing tomatoes (or opening can of diced tomatoes, cheater), peppers, etc.
Mix tomatoes, tomato paste, onions, chili beans, peppers together into the slow-cooker/crock pot
drain hamburger, stir into mixture above, add in chili powder
Cover and cook on low heat 4-6 hours (the longer the better but I usually break after 3 and steal some from the simmering pot)
Serve with shredded cheese in lieu of crackers
