Keto Beef Chili is one of my favorite one-pot meal. Everything is cooked in the Instant Pot. The best part is that once you close the lid, you don’t have to babysit it. You are free to go do something else without a care in the world (for dinner at least🤷🏽‍♀️). 

If you have package of ground beef, you are pretty much set. I always buy a few packages and put them in my freezer for easy meals like this. The other items like onion, garlic, canned tomatoes are pantry staples for a lot of home cooks. Spices like cumin and chili powder are commonly used in this recipe and many other. Chances are you probably have have everything you need to make it tonight!

A spoonful of this chili will sure to warm your heart.
