  • 6 slices bacon
  • 1 lb Ground pork
  • 1 1/2 pounds Ground beef (80/20)
  • 1 medium Sweet onion (about 5 ounces)
  • 2 small Green bell peppers (about 8 ounces after seeds and stem)
  • 2.50 tsp Minced Garlic (or 5 large cloves)
  • 3 Cup Organic beef stock
  • 2 Tbls Chili powder
  • 4 tsp Ground cumin
  • 2 tsp Pink salt
  • 1 tsp Ground pepper
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper (optional)
  • 30 drop liquid monk fruit or steiva (optional)
  • 2 scoops Tomato Basil Keto Chow


  • Heat up a large cast iron pot or dutch oven on medium heat
  • Dice up the bacon and add to pot with coconut oil.  Cook until fat is rendered.  Don't overcook the bacon, it should be soft.
  • Add ground beef and ground pork and cook most of the way through.  Make sure you break up the meat into small pieces as it cooks.
  • While meat is cooking, dice the onion and green pepper.  If you are using fresh garlic, mince up the cloves.
  • When meat is almost fully cooked, add green pepper, onion, garlic Stir to combine and allow to simmer for a few minutes until peppers and onion soften up
  • Add all spices, keto chow and beef stock. Stir to combine well. Some people like a sweet and spicy chili, if so, add monk fruit or stevia with the spices. If you like a heartier chili, eliminate 1/2 cup of stock
  • Turn heat to a simmer and cover.  Allow to cook for 1-2 hours.  For a thicker chili, simmer with lid off for at least 30 minutes.
  • Serve with cheese and sour cream


When we can find it on sale, we like to use 70/30 ground beef instead of the 80/20.
