Above average for a supermarket chilli

Overall this chilli is better than many similar ones I've tried from supermarkets. The packaging is fairly unassuming but it looks decent when you serve it up on the plate. The first mouthful is a little disappointing as it seems to lack any depth of flavour or hit of chilli, but then you'll get in to it as you realise that it actually has quite a well balanced taste. Ok so it won't blow your socks off, but it's far from bland and I found it strangely enjoyable for such a light con carne. Worth a go, especially if you don't want much heat in your chilli.

almost a good as homemade

Tasty, but not hit, so would suit most pallets.

Low quality

The chilli was too dry and the mince mushy and low grade. Not good for the price

Surprisingly Good

The trade off with ready meals is convenience, speed and less clear up as against the quality and taste of a 'proper' home cooked meal. It is hard to get ready meals right as the cook-chill-reheat process saps the food of taste. But in this Chilli they have got it more right than wrong. Using fine ground beef certainly decimates any 'nasty bits' there may be in the meat, and the meal has enough tang and bite to satisfy without alianating those with a gentle palate. Not quite a replacement for a home made chilli but great for when convenience is called for.

Acidic tasting sauce

This could have been so good. Maybe, as others have suggested, the meat could be ground more coarsely. But there was enough meat, enough pepper, enough tomatoes. So why make the thing so acidic? It tasted as though someone had squeezed a whole lemon into it, or overdone the citric acid in the tomato puree. Plus there was an aftertaste of mould. Maybe mine was from a bad batch, but I won't be ordering this one again!
