I am a fan of chilli con carne and normally buy the fresh ready meal range. I bought this instead due to the lower cost and longer shelf life. Compared to the fresh range, this has more of a meaty flavour and is only bettered by the finest range at almost three times the cost. I am now buying this regularly.
Worst ever tasted
We're chilli con carne lovers and this must be one of the worst we've ever had the misfortune to taste. The ratio of rice to meat was appalling - you had to go hunting for the mince. There were very few kidney beans and the chilli flavour was almost non-existent.
not what it looks like
In packet it looks like 50% meat 50% rice, but some of the rice is hidden under the meat so the real ratio is more like 70% rice to 30% meat & sauce - so not such good value!
Why change the really good packaging for rubbish
WHY did you change the plastic carton it comes in!? I bought 3 and all the lids were damaged! :( what a shame. Always seem to make changes that are WORSE and not improvements !
Really tasty and good value.
Received this in an online order as a substitute for Charlie Bighams Chill con Carne. Was n't really expecting much, especially as it was n't even from the 'Finest' range, but we all really enjoyed it. Needless to say we will not be ordering the more expensive version again as this was perfectly adequate.
nice quality meal, ready in minutes and very flavourful.

Meal spoilt. Coriander warning 4 coriander haters
We love chilli con carne but why the heck have you got to put coriander in it. It means I can't buy and enjoy this as it makes the meal taste like its got high content of graded soap bar in it.. Why don't Tesco have a separate sachet for the coriander and then people like us who have genetic makeup that makes coriander taste like soap (30% of the population, a not insignificant number) can enjoy this, omitting the coriander, and those that enjoy it can mix it in when they put it in the microwave.. For us, as it is it is repulsive!!!

Not good value. All rice and very little chilli con carne. won't be buying again.
All rice no chilli, looks like its half rice and half chilli sauce but in fact there is a ton of rice hidden under the sauce. don't like being scammed.
