Beef Recipes





Keto chili is big on beefy flavor and low on carbs. This tasty recipe uses a blend of peppers to bring out the flavors of tender beef for a bowl of deliciousness you’ll love digging into.



  • 3-4 Dried Ancho chili peppers
  • 3-4 Dried Pasilla chili peppers
  • 1.5 pounds Beef chuck roastcut into 1 inch cubes
  • 5 ounces Oniondiced
  • 3 cloves Garlicminced
  • 2 teaspoons Cumin powder
  • 3 cups Beef Broth
  • 1 cup Water
  • 2 tablespoons Red Wine Vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Salt plus more to taste


    • In a skillet over medium low heat lightly toast the dried chili peppers for approximately 3 minutes.
  • Remove the peppers and slice open. Pour seeds out into the trash then place the peppers in a bowl and pour 2 cups of hot water over them. Let the peppers soak for 15-30 minutes, or until they have softened.
  • Place the softened peppers in a food processor along with 1 cup of the water they soaked in and puree until you have a smooth paste. Set aside.
  • In a large skillet heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil over medium high heat. Add beef cubes and sprinkle with 1 teaspoon of salt before browning the meat. Approximately 10 minutes. See Note #1
  • Set browned meat aside and add the onions to the skillet. Cook for approximately 3 minutes before adding the garlic and continuing to cook for another 2 minutes.
  • In a large pot add browned beef, cooked onions and garlic, cumin, beef broth, and water. Bring to a boil and then reduce temperature to medium-low to maintain a simmer. Continue to cook for 2 hours or until beef is tender.
  • When the chili is ready add red wine vinegar and salt to taste before serving.


  1. Don’t crowd the meat. If you need more space work in batches setting aside a portion of the browned beef before adding more to the pan.



There are a lot of different chili varieties to choose from. You can stick with just one dried pepper or mix and match them to fit your flavor and heat level preferences. Here are some of my favorite pepper varieties.Ancho – This is a dried poblano pepper that has a mild heat levelGuajillo – This is a dried mirasol chili. It is a very common dried pepper found at most grocery stores. It has a mild heat level.Pasilla – This is a dried chilaca chili. It has a medium to hot heat level. It also adds a rich, earthy flavor to the chili. They are often used in mole sauces. New Mexico (Chile Colorado) – This is a popular chili with a mild heat level. It also offers a slightly fruity flavor. Chipotle – Another popular pepper, this is a dried jalapeno pepper. There are two varieties: the morita and meco. The morita is the more common variety and the one I would suggest for this recipe. The meco is larger and usually stuffed with other ingredients before cooking. It has a medium heat level and a smokey, almost sweet flavor.


This recipe calls for cubes of chuck roast, which is typically used in Texas chili. It’s a great addition to a protein-filled keto meal. When simmered for a few hours, it becomes tender and juicy.

If you prefer you can use ground beef. I suggest 80/20 ground beef. Brown it and then drain the grease before adding it to the chili.
