Game Day Chili
Superbowl is just around the corner and I know you've all been wondering what to serve the crowd. This Keto-licious meal will keep you on within your macros and also satisfy those meat-atarians that will gather on your couch this weekend.
Our pre-keto chili recipe was fueled by a secret ingredient- Brown sugar. It was a crowd-pleaser that all our friends and family loved. We would spend a weekend squirreled away in our kitchen enjoying each others company and stirring up some serious eats. We had a line up of standing orders for chili. Take away containers that we would put aside for the loved ones in our life who happened to love our chili.
It took us awhile to try Keto chili. We were afraid that it just wouldn't hold up to its predecessor, our brown sugar chili. Not to mention that beans were not a part of our life anymore. Who eats chili without beans? Apparently....We do!! After a brain storming session, we identified a coupe of ingredients that would take our ordinary chili and lift it to the flavour height we were used to. We were delighted with the end result.

- In a large pot, sauté onions with oil until they are translucent.

- When the meat is mostly cooked (but not yet browned) push the meat mixture to the edges of the pan and add bacon and peppers into the centre of the pan. Cook until the bacon is mostly cooked and the peppers are soft then combine with the meat.

- Always introduce new ingredients right onto the pan, and not into any ingredients already in that pan, especially spices. We push all items to the edges of the pot and then add spices etc. right into the oil in the centre. Then integrate into the mix.
