Reasonable quick meal
For a quick meal this chilli con carne is around average. The taste is ok if a little one dimensional in that all you taste is this generic chilli flavour, rather like you're eating mild chilli paste. Chilli heat is noticeable but very mild. Heated up in a saucepan with a tin of potatoes, it makes for a pleasant quick meal. The addition of a sprinkling of chopped raw onion and chopped chilli pepper gives it a lift. What is not so good is the consistency. It is way too runny and is bordering on a soup. The other thing is that it stains my washing up brush a bright orange colour that stays for days. I have made chilli con carne from scratch with mince, onions, kidney beans, chopped chillies etc., and it never stains things like this canned variety does. Can't imagine what it's doing to my insides, avoid going to the loo in the dark if you don't want a scare!
Delicious on toast
Had this today on two slices of Hovis 50/50 toast, gentry cooked on the hob so it didn’t boil, absolutely delicious. Will be buying again.
Delicious Quick Meal.
This is a really delicious meal served with rice. Great to have in my cupboard. It is a perfect, quick meal to have, if I have no time to cook from scratch.
Please bring back!
Best stuff I’ve had in years but can neva see it on the shelves! Why?
Having read the reviews I thought I'd give it a try, I'm so glad I did. The sauce is absolutely delicious and with the right amount of beans added, makes this a perfect chilli. Sometimes food products need a little tweaking but this doesn't, you can't improve on perfection.
Had this with some rice and it was just the right
Had this with some rice and it was just the right amount for a quick and tasty meal
Bought this because I was craving chilli but couldn't afford to make one. Wasn't expecting much but this is lovely. Plenty of meat and beans and without that awful synthetic, overly tomatoey taste. Just real chilli with real spices. This was a pleasant surprise and I recommend it.
It's too spicy!
Great quality at the price and from a tin!!
Can’t really fault this! Just had with some rice and was left satisfied - the beef & beans have a nice texture, and the sauce is punchy, but not too hot. Incredibly good quality at the price, and from a tin!
Very flavoursome with a good kick!
