Keto Friendly Chili

Every 10 years my husband goes to Las Vegas to go Skydiving for his birthday. Skydiving has a weight limit and my cute hubby is over it. We haved decided it is time to get serious and get the weight off before his birthday at the end of October. I  haven’t been able to lose weight ever since my thyroid has went crazy and so we decided that we needed to try something desperate. My sons have been doing the keto diet for a while and lost weight and now it seems to help them maintain their ultimate weight. That’s what has convinced us to jump on the bandwagon.

My husband has graciously agreed to be my model through this process. We are not experts but I thought it would be fun to go on this journey with you and let you know what has worked and what has not worked for us. One thing that helps me focused and able to do something like this, is the ability to eat dishes that taste good and I don’t feel deprived.  This is a recipe that will please the whole family and you won’t feel like you have to make two different meals.

My husband will tell anyone that this is his new favorite chili recipe, hands down! It’s so full of flavor that even my 15-year-old ate two bowls and that is saying a lot! 

Ingredients:

1 LB Ground Beef
1 LB Ground Sausage
1 Medium Green Bell Pepper, chopped
1 Medium Yellow Onion, chopped
2 can of Diced Tomatoes in Tomato Juice (14.5 oz)
1 can Tomato Paste ( 6 oz)
1 T Chili Powder (May need to use more if you choose a mild sausage)
1/2 T Ground Cumin
3-4 Garlic Cloves, minced

Directions:

Brown the sausage and ground beef in a stock pot.
Drain and save half of the fat.
Place the cooked sausage and ground beef back into the pot.
Add half of the fat drippings and all other ingredients into the pot and mix well.
Place the lid on the pan, set on low, and let simmer for a couple hours. Make sure to check on it every once in a while and stir.
Plate and top with sour cream, and cheese, if you like.
Enjoy!
