Friday Night 'Chili Bake' : It's Cheesy, Low Carb / Keto

When you are short on time, look no further than this cheesy low carb/keto chili bake by Libby Jenkinson. It can make a lovely Friday night (or any night) meal. Let the simple ingredients do the talking–ground beef with delicious veggies and flavourful spices. Throw everything in a baking dish, cover with cheese and let the oven do its magic. Serve with fresh cilantro and sour cream!


Ingredients
Serves Four
1 tbsp olive oil
½ cup (2¾ oz.) red onions, diced
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 lb ground beef
1⁄3 cup red bell peppers, diced
1⁄3 cup green bell peppers, diced
2 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp chili powder
2 tsp tomato paste
1 cup (8½ oz.) canned whole tomatoes
1 cup (4 oz.) shredded cheddar cheese
salt and pepper to taste
For serving
½ cup sour cream
2 tsp fresh cilantro, chopped

Tip
To reduce dishes, you can also cook the beef and vegetables in an oven-safe skillet. When the beef is browned, simply top with cheese and place into the oven.

Cilantro is an herb with wide delicate lacy green leaves and a pungent flavour. The seed of the cilantro plant is known as coriander. Although cilantro and coriander come from the same plant, their flavours are very different and cannot be substituted for each other. (Some countries refer to the cilantro as coriander, so any references to "fresh coriander" or "coriander leaves" refer to cilantro.) It can be easily confused with flat-leaf parsley in appearance, so be sure to sniff carefully. Look for a bunch with un-wilted leaves in medium green. Found fresh year round in most markets.

I like casseroles.

I am generally not wild about casseroles, but I might try this one, substituting ground turkey for ground beef.

Tom said...

This sounds really good, even for this vegetarian.

I brought my cilantro in this week to overwinter inside. I love the taste of fresh cilantro, especially in Mexican dishes. Thanks for pointing the differences out to those who are confused about the difference between cilantro and coriander.

Hello Jan, what a lovely bake! I started to feel more happy and warm just seeing the photo.
I don't like coriander very much so it would be very interesting to smell and taste cilantro!
Thank you for these interesting posts and have a happy weekend!

This looks like something my husband might enjoy-and I definitely would. I wanted to say I've been using some of recipes lately. He was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes earlier this summer, and I am trying to change up my cooking. So thanks! Happy weekend.

Looks nice. I would leave out the cilantro as I think it tastes like soap.
