Beef Chilli

I never used to make Beef Chilli that often, but since going low carb I’ve grown to love Mexican style food because it usually gives me an excuse to have a side of avocado and sour cream, 2 things that taste awesome and go so well together, especially with Mexican flavours!

This Beef Chilli doesn’t have any beans of course, but I really don’t miss them at all and love eating this almost like a soup with the cheese, sour cream and avocado on top. You can also have them on the side and eat them that way if you prefer not having them on your chilli. This Beef Chilli would be great using pork instead of beef, even diced in cubes rather than minced. Try different ways of making it and see what you like best!


Beef Chilli – Serves 8


1kg beef mince

2 red capsicums, diced
