Instant Pot Low-Carb All-Beef Ancho and Anaheim Chili is what Texans consider to be real chili with only beef and no beans, and this is a great option for low-carb chili.
CrockPot Pumpkin Chili with Ground Beef, Black Beans, and Kidney Beans has been hugely popular on the blog. And my nephew Matt won a chili-making contest with this recipe!
One of my all-time favorite chili recipes is definitely the Black Bean and Beef Chili with Lime, Cilantro, and Avocado Salsa. It’s the salsa that makes this chili over-the-top good.
This Instant Pot Low-Carb Ground Beef Olive Lover’s Chili will be a huge hit with people who love olives!
If you’d like a chili without beans, this Paleo Pumpkin Chili with Beef, Peppers, and Olives is also a winner for olive fans!
We swooned over this Paleo Turkey Sweet Potato Chili when we tested the recipe!
The recipe for Crockpot Black Bean Chili with Lime and Cilantro was definitely a spin-off of the black bean chili just above it, but besides being made in the crockpot, this one is a bit less spicy, and has less ingredients. There’s still a generous amount of lime and cilantro though, two of the things I really like in chili.
I called this Not Just for the Superbowl Chili when I posted it back in 2006. This was a huge hit with my family, and one I still make now, many Superbowl parties later!
For those who’d like a meatless chili, this Vegan Lentil Chili with Roasted Red Peppers, Olives, and Green Onion is really delicious!
When she gave me the recipe, I never imagined that Amy’s Amazing White Chicken Chili would become one of the most popular recipes on my blog, but this is a hit with everyone who tries it!
Chocolate added to chili is a brilliant flavor pairing, and this version of Turkey and White Bean Chili with Chocolate was one of the first times I tried it. This chili also uses lean ground turkey instead of beef, and has white beans which go well with the turkey.
This Slow Cooker Recipe for Beef and Refried Bean Chili with Salsa and Lime is another one with the lime and chili flavor combo I like so much. This is thickened with refried beans for those who like an extra-thick chili.
Turkey and Pinto Bean White Chili with Lime can be made with leftover turkey or ground turkey, your choice!
Easy Turkey Chili with Mushrooms, Peppers, and Olives has a lot of low-carb ingredients to bring down the total carb count of this tasty chili.
