Spices - Reduce the cayenne if you don't enjoy spicy food
Ground Beef - substitute any ground meat you prefer or plant-based mince for a keto vegan option.
Vegemite is added for the salty umami it adds in cooking. Substitute salt and pepper if required.
The Crispy Keto Waffle was used as a nice toastie to dip into your chilli.  Simply add some of your favourite cheese to the batter for a cheesy waffle.  Yummo! 
Keep refrigerated up to 5 days after cooking. Alternatively store in an airtight container in the freezer.
