There are as many theories about the origin of "Chili" as there are versions! Some say "chilli parlours" started up in Texas, and by the 1920s these sheds serving tasty but affordable chili were to be found in every town all over the west of the USA! We've taken this great dish and put a twist on it with baked beans! Our Chipotle Paste spices up the beans which works well with our smoky paprika blend.

Really loved it with baked beans !

Julie - Oct 10, 2018

Have made and frozen for future use. It looked and smelled nice although think I will stick to my own chilli recipe in future as not a fan of using the baked beans in it but had to, to give it enough sauce.

Best chilli ive ever cooked!

Caroline - Sep 26, 2018

Was OK, but the addition of the baked beans (per the recipe) made it a bit sweet. Will probably not choose this again.
