Beanless Beef Chili


Beanless Beef Chili

35 Min

No long cooking required for our Beanless Beef Chili, yet it's as hearty as can be, even without the beans. This skillet main dish is packed with lighter ingredients but is still stick-to-your-ribs satisfying, making it one of our favorite low-carb ground beef recipes.

What You'll Need

  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 2 onions, sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 (14-ounce) can no-salt diced tomatoes
  • 1 (14-ounce) can low-sodium beef broth
  • 1 (4-ounce) can chopped green chilies with liquid
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder

What to Do

  1. In a large skillet over medium heat, brown ground beef. Drain and discard excess liquid; set aside.

  2. Add onions and garlic to skillet. Cook over medium heat about 10 minutes. Add tomatoes, broth, and green chilies. Bring to a boil and add cumin, chili powder, and ground beef. Reduce heat to low and simmer about 15 minutes.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Oh my gosh!!! I'm so-so about eating chili, but decided to try this recipe. I love it! I doubled the recipe so I could freeze most of it, but ended up eating all of it the first week after I made it - so much for that idea! I just finished making a second doubled batch, and can't wait to dig in! -)

We are so glad you enjoyed this recipe! :)
