Southwestern Pork Stew

Keto Recipes > Keto Dinner Recipes

Here’s a hearty stew that will fill you up while it warms your belly – perfect for this time of year! Many places are having very early frost warnings and snow this year (looking at you, Canada!). There is the just the right amount of spice in this dish with both chili powder and jalapeno, coaxing your taste buds without overwhelming them. The cinnamon works so well with the coffee and the cumin – it will have those you feed it to wondering what the special note is in the dish.

Not to mention, it’s super colorful! It’s a great match for the weather changes that are happening outside and will really brighten your day up, rain, snow, or shine ūüôā


The stew is just a delicious blend of rich flavors that gets offset with the freshness of all of the vegetables. A beautiful bone broth coats everything in the stew, and you’ll get a new flavor with every single bite! The button mushrooms in this recipe work so well with the red and green bell peppers. They help make this dish have such a great deep flavor and soak up the fats and broth wonderfully.
