This was really tasty it surprised me a little, had a left over chilli in the fridge I chopped up and added and together with 2 colours of pepper and coriander the sweetness from the beans complimented it beautifully.

Gill - Dec 08, 2019

I couldn't taste the chilli, just seemed to be smoky

Brian - Dec 07, 2019

No impressed at all. Gave two stars because it was edible. I have made better chilli myself.

Nicola M - Dec 05, 2019

So much flavour. Excellent!

Hannah - Dec 03, 2019

Surprisingly nice, was even eaten by someone who hates baked beans!

Brian - Dec 02, 2019

I love chilli usually but I found this one very uneventful. Not spicy at all, too smokey. I was not impressed.

Stacey - Dec 02, 2019

Too sweet

Clive - Nov 30, 2019


Luke - Nov 28, 2019

Just tastes of baked beans. This one is the only miss out of 5 or 6 boxes.

Tim - Nov 27, 2019

Good, easy to make, but might benefit from a chili and kidney instead of baked beans.

Malgorzata - Nov 26, 2019

Very good

Marie - Nov 26, 2019

Not as nice as other dishes .

Danielle - Nov 26, 2019

Loved it

Nathan - Nov 24, 2019

Wonderful smokey flavour. I put a red chilli in as well for a hit of extra kick. Definitely getting this again.

Bryan - Nov 22, 2019

Seem to get this everytime I forget to select my meals, really disappointing every time we have it.

Natalie - Nov 19, 2019

Not spicy enough.

Andy - Nov 19, 2019

Tin of sweet corn really works in it as well.

Melanie - Nov 18, 2019

Ok, nice smokey flavour but nothing special

Fran - Nov 17, 2019

Really nice

Aniekan - Nov 16, 2019

Don’t like it

Linda - Nov 13, 2019

Absolutely love this. Lost count of how many times I have ordered it.

Nicola - Nov 12, 2019

Used turkey mince wasn’t a lot of moisture quite dry

Suzanne - Nov 11, 2019

Tasted better chilli from a shop bought jar. Very disappointing

Yasmin - Nov 11, 2019


Julie - Nov 08, 2019

Not tasty enough for me. Nice consistency though.

Lee-Anne - Nov 08, 2019

Tasted ok. Have made better myself. Beefy rice was a nice edition. Important to note, you need to add a lot more water to both the water and chilli, otherwise it will just stick to the pot and pan

Libby - Nov 07, 2019

Pleasant but a bit bland.

Rebecca - Nov 07, 2019

I added fresh red chilli and cumin and substituted kidney beans as per the other reviews but can make a tastier chilli myself. This was ok but lacking in flavour

Clare - Nov 06, 2019

Not much heat, tasted a bit odd to be honest. Not for me, wouldn't have again.

Matthew - Nov 03, 2019

No flavour

James - Nov 03, 2019

Lovely chilli. Spices just right. Baked beans I thought would be an odd addition but really worked well.

Karen - Nov 02, 2019

Would have liked this a bit hotter but it was still nice

Kevin - Nov 02, 2019

Super tasty !!!

Magdalena - Nov 01, 2019

Not a chilli. In any way whatsoever.

Linda - Oct 29, 2019


Sarah - Oct 28, 2019

Bit too sweet.

Tracey - Oct 28, 2019

Lovely meal

Mateusz - Oct 27, 2019

Very filling, add extra chilli if you want it hot.

Julia - Oct 27, 2019


Lily - Oct 27, 2019

Not bad! Drained the beans which I think helped. The sour cream really makes this one.

Douglas - Oct 26, 2019

I prefer my own recipe :)

Douglas - Oct 26, 2019

I prefer my own recipe :)

Michelle - Oct 26, 2019

Boring with just peppers and beans in

Danielle - Oct 25, 2019

Followed reviews and used half baked beans and half red kidney beans in chilli sauce. Also used chilli oil and added cumin for more flavour.

Denise - Oct 25, 2019

Very tasty

Jenny - Oct 24, 2019


Simon - Oct 24, 2019

Not much beyond what’s easy to cook without simply cook. The baked beans instead of kidney beans seems an error. Could do with some spice. Fine comfort food & pretty simple though.

Iona - Oct 24, 2019
