A Complete Keto Meal with Minimal Effort!
We’re all for elaborate dinners – we love getting creative, we love bonding in the kitchen over a complex recipe and the satisfaction of a long labor finally completed. But when we got our first slow cooker, we changed our views quickly. There’s nothing more satisfying than letting a little robot cooker make your dinner for you while you’re away doing just about anything!
We’ve made Pulled Pork Tacos while we slept and BBQ Beef Burritos while we worked! This time, we made a batch of homemade Slow Cooker Chili that we think turned out absolutely fabulous.

The entire recipe gave us serious Asian vibes – somewhere between Indian and Thai: arguably two of the most flavorful cuisines in the world. You don’t have to garnish with fresh chilis like we did – we’re just nuts about heat. If a pepper doesn’t make you sweat, cry or bleed, it isn’t spicy enough for us. But we know most of our readers are different!
Feel free to keep this dish at a mild heat level. Bell peppers and chili powder should add a subtle heat that makes chili what it’s known for. Pairing our Slow Cooker Chili with a simple, sauteed cauliflower rice makes this dish ultra low carb & paleo-friendly too. The two textures, though similar, complement each other immensely. We kept them separate in the bowl to appreciate each part of the dish without overpowering the other.
What’s your heat tolerance? Do you stick to bell peppers or is your refrigerator door falling off its hinges with hot sauces like ours is? Let us know in the comments!

Curious, how much is each serving? Portion control is a problem for me. Recipes would be so much easier if it was stated, ONLY EAT A CUP (or whatever).
We think it’s pretty easy to divide a recipe into the number of servings it makes and eat only one at a time. This recipe makes 6 servings, so eat 1/6th at a time (or more if your macros allow for it).
Just curious..if kept, why lean ground and why drain the fat?
We use 80% lean ground beef (20% fat), which is not a lean option at all. Lean beef would be 99% lean or alike. The amount of fat remaining in the pan will be A LOT! Drain some of it, not all 🙂
Thanks for letting us know! It should be working now.
