Fiona - Oct 01, 2019

This is bland, not at all spicy and too sweet and stodgy. I much prefer my home made chilli. I thought it was a vegetarian chilli, but disappointed to discover it wasn’t. I’m not veggie, but enjoy veggie food and try to eat less meat.

Roland - Sep 30, 2019

Tasty and quick to cook. Perfect midweek dinner

Amanda - Sep 20, 2019

Not spicy enough

Sian - Sep 17, 2019


Asif - Sep 14, 2019

I put extra water in which worked really well in terms of consistency

Rachael - Sep 14, 2019

Really tasty but dry. I used kidney beans instead of baked beans and then added tomato puree and water to compensate for the lack of sauce, but is be tempted to add passata in future.

Nichola - Sep 12, 2019

Bland least favourite recipe

Really different from the usual chilli I make. Will get it again.

Perdi - Aug 22, 2019

Nothing different to what I would normally cook

Elaine - Aug 21, 2019

First time kids have finished chilli. Think maybe as not so spicy and more of a smokey bbq taste to it

Ailsa - Aug 21, 2019

Delicious! I wasn’t sure about the baked beans initially but tasted lovely. I added a chilli as like a soft chilli and glad I did.

Linda - Aug 21, 2019
