I honestly wasn't looking forward to eating it but money is tight and I needed some very cheap meals, sick of meal replacement shakes. I ate it on its own and it was surprisingly very nice. I would probably add more kidney beans but this is genuinely a tasty, cheap chilli.
A good backstop for the money
I like a good chilli and usually would cook it myself, but I thought a couple of cans in stock for quick meals might be worth a try. FOR THE PRICE it's reasonably good, with filling ingredients and not an overwhelming amount of sauce. My main issue is the very bitter - bordering on burnt - flavour. I can't really identify what causes the unpleasant aftertaste, but it's made better if I add a couple of extra ingredients to balance it out. Worth having as a backstop, but definitely no substitute for a home cook!
Not as bad as some reviews might say. Perfect for
Not as bad as some reviews might say. Perfect for a jacket potato and seriously for less than 60p I would struggle to find any mince beef alone for that price. Family enjoyed it. I added cream cheese on top instead of sour cream and the kids scoffed it all up.
Evil In A Tin - AVOID!!
The worst of this isn't the weird demonic red colour 'sauce', or the musty red kidney beans that taste like sawdust, or even the minced-up bits of sad gristle mixed with soya. Nope, the worst of this happens the following day, all day, and painfully, with gas. Not all the boiled rice in the world can disguise this cheapo disaster. This is great for feeding the family, but only if you really hate your family. Otherwise, be warned - DON'T BUY!! And Tesco - please discontinue this for people's safety!
Great value for money, not watery at all and substantial with the perfect amount of heat , not too mild not too hot, just right.
Big Surprise - This Isn't Too Bad At All!
Tested out of curiosity - I'm a keen cook and prepare almost everything we eat from scratch, but I don't want to be completely ignorant of what is out there in cans, what with the global pandemic and all. This was never going to be restaurant quality, but I honestly feel as though the creators have reached a surprisingly high standard with this. The ingredients are pretty good - minimal rubbish - and I think some work has gone into making this pretty good. It needs seasoning - I used smoked salt, lime and a bit of dried mushroom powder - and tried it with some sour cream. More beans would easily work too. The beef is padded out with the other ingredients, so it's barely a background whisper to keep the price so low, but the spicing is pretty good, and it's really not unpleasant at all.

Can't recommend this product for the price more highly..For under 60p you cant go wrong.Just the right amount of kidney beans and flavour.Have it with cauliflower rice,rice,hotdog or even whack it on a jacket.Well done tesco on an excellent budget product.
Tasty and as good as any I've tried
Really enjoyed this with some rice and a few green beans. I like the ringpull, saves hunting out a tin opener. Absolute bargain.
