Low Carb Vegetarian Keto/Paleo Chili

Recently, I’ve been experimenting with the Ketogenic (Keto) diet, which is high fat, moderate protien and very low carb. It’s kind of like Atkins with a few tweaks. It’s pretty challenging if you don’t eat meat so I’ve been on the hunt for some delicious, filling recipes. One of my vegetarian staples is chili with a variety of beans. Unfortunately on the keto diet beans are forbidden (well, at least in the quantities that I like to eat them). I came up with a delicious low carb vegetarian Keto chili recipe that will knock your socks off! It’s great for all of you Paleo vegetarians too!
