This low-carb bowl of chili is a true crowd-pleaser. Best of all, it requires simple ingredients found in most household pantries. Whenever I'm unsure what to eat, this famous keto chili recipe is my go-to winter dish. You can also serve it over rice or pasta if low-carb isn't your diet, but if you are looking to lose weight you can find a low carb alternative instead.

  • 1 package ground beef
  • 1 sausage of your choosing 
  • ½ onion, diced
  • ⅓ - ½ cup water
  • 1 can diced tomatoes
