Beanless Pumpkin Keto Chili Recipe

I love chili.

I LOVE chili.


I’m sitting here nomming down a bowl of last night’s pumpkin keto chili for breakfast. Why? Because it’s delicious. Spicy, sweet, and it tastes like October. Also, I have a nasty cold and P was lovely enough to follow the recipe I wrote up for this keto pumpkin chili last week.

Don’t worry, adding pumpkin to your keto chili doesn’t make it sweet, and with the spices I’ve added, it won’t make it taste overwhelmingly pumpkin-y – just enough. It makes it creamy, rich, and thick yet slurpy enough at all the right ratios.

As of right now, this recipe makes approximately 12 very filling servings. Chili always tastes better the next day, which is why I opted for a larger batch.

I have these nutrition facts with my recipes now, but they’re auto-generated, so although I think they’re helpful for you, my recipe had considerably less carbohydrates in it than what’s below. It all depends on your ingredients!

It’s now packaged it up in 8oz mason jars so that I’d have lunch (er.. breakfast?) all week. I feel slightly guilty about it though, I’ll admit … because I feel like this recipe could have been considerably more keto-friendly. That’s why I’ll continue to update this post with every new pumpkin keto chili recipe from our little test kitchen.
