Keto 30-Minute Chili with Olives - This is the Best Classic Chili made Keto, Whole30 and Paleo with the elimination of beans and the addition of olives. This traditional chili recipe is just like your childhood favourite without beans and without a full day in the slow cooker! A simple homemade blend of chili seasonings, ground meat, tomatoes and then the secret addition of olives, makes this one of my husband’s favourite meals (and I love it because it’s easy to make)!

  • Total Time: 0 hours
  • Yield: 6 servings 1x


Units Scale
  • 1 lb ground meat (turkey, beef or pork)
  • 13 oz tomatoes, crushed (I use Pomi)
  • 12 oz riced cauliflower (I use frozen organic riced cauliflower from Trader Joe's)
  • 5-7 oz green olives in brine
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 tbsp coconut aminos (or soy sauce if not doing Whole30)
  • 1 cup light beer (optional)
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 2 tablespoons ground cumin
  • 2 tablespoons sweetener (I used Lakanto)
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper (or more depending on taste)


  1. In a large pot or using your crock pot on the saute mode, add meat and cook until no longer pink.  Add in chopped onion.  Stir and continue to cook for about 3-5 minutes or until onions start to become translucent.
  2. Add in crushed tomatoes, coconut aminos, riced cauliflower, olive juice, beer (if using) and spices.  Stir to combine and simmer for an additional 20 minutes.
  3. Add sliced olives, stir and divide into 6 bowls.  Add salt, pepper and additional hot sauce to taste.


  • Feel free to omit the riced cauliflower or make your one following these directions)
  • I like my chili spicy so I add some extra hot sauce to my bowl!
  • The nutritional information was based on using lean beef and will change depending on what meat you use.
