Beanless Pumpkin Keto Chili Recipe

Keto Chili

5 from 2 reviews

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.



  • 2 lbs grass fed ground beef
  • 1 yellow onion
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 32oz of 100% tomato juice (Add more if you prefer a thinner chili)
  • 128oz can of diced tomatoes in tomato juice
  • 115oz can 100% pumpkin
  • 1 tbsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 2 tsp cumin


  1. Brown the meat in a large pot over medium heat. Strain and then put back in the pot.
  2. Chop the onion and pepper, then add into the pot with the meat, cooking until the onions become translucent (3-5 minutes)
  3. Add in the rest of the ingredients and let simmer on low for 30 minutes.
  4. Taste your chili, adjust seasonings as you like and cook for another 30 minutes.
  5. Serve and enjoy!
