It was ok nothing special. Wouldn’t get it again. The rice was nice with the stock.

Karen - Jun 16, 2019

Not hot or spicy more smoky taste

Gail - Jun 15, 2019

So quick and easy to make with a few ingredients but very tasty.

Louise - Jun 14, 2019

Very tasty , loads better than jar chilli

Katriona - Jun 13, 2019

Not as spicy as I thought it would be

Sandra - Jun 12, 2019

Love this!Have had it several times and it's a family favourite!

Stewart - Jun 12, 2019

Would not normally use baked beans in a chilli but this was a perfect recipe for my 12 year old son to cook for us. You should start a youngster’s set of boxes

Louise - Jun 12, 2019

I needed to add extra chili flakes as it needed a bit of a kick. Good served with cheese and sour cream. If making again, I would use kidney beans instead of baked beans

Samantha - Jun 11, 2019

Well I was a little dubious with the baked beans but we both really enjoyed it. It was a lovely dish and would order again .

Bogdan - Jun 10, 2019

A little too sweet for me but otherwise good!

Helen - Jun 09, 2019

Would use kidney beans if I cook it again

warwick - Jun 08, 2019

Very bland and tasteless

Victoria - Jun 07, 2019

This was delicious, and it makes a real change from other chilli flavours, this flavour was smoky as compared to peppery.

Lesley - Jun 06, 2019

Don’t let the lack of ingredients fool you this dish is packed full of flavour and is absolutely delicious. Loved the smoked taste of this chilli. I had some mushrooms that I needed using up so I added them when I cooked the onion and red pepper. Will choose this dish again

Caroline - Jun 06, 2019

Loved it just the right spiciness. Would try it again.

Matt - Jun 04, 2019

Just awful

Paul - Jun 03, 2019

We love these dishes but this was our lowest rating. Very dark almost bitter taste and it wasn’t over cooked. We’ll give this a miss next time.

Jayne - Jun 02, 2019

A bit bland needed a bit more of a kick

Patsy - May 31, 2019

Found this bland,not hot enough.

Naomi - May 30, 2019

Misleading as thought was veggie

Vicky - May 29, 2019

This was quite nice but a bit strange with the baked beans. also there wasn't enough liquid/juice with just one tin of beans so I also added a tin of chopped tomatoes. my 5 year old loved it so definitely a good one for kids as the flavour isn't too strong.

Matt - May 29, 2019

Nice chilli. Great for family meal.

Daniel - May 28, 2019

Great Chilli needs more spice though :)

Sara - May 27, 2019

Nice smoky flavour - quite mild it could be spicier - simple & quick to cook would order again & add my own chilli powder

Neil - May 27, 2019

A tad sweet for me

Natascha - May 27, 2019

A bit bland, baked beans are strange in chilli

Shelley - May 27, 2019

no flavour what so ever. I added veg stock, chipoltle sauce, chilli puree and garlic. It tasted quite nice then!

Amanda - May 24, 2019

First time having this. Will definitely be having again

Simon - May 24, 2019

Simple but satisfying ????????

Julie - May 23, 2019

Sweeter and less spicy than I expected for a chilli but the smokiness was nice and it was quick and simple to cook - I added a little tomato purée too.

Tracey - May 22, 2019

Didn’t taste like I expected it to but was still nice

This was by far the most horrid dish we have had. One word nasty.

Alison - May 17, 2019

Delicious! I used half beef, half quorn

Jacqueline - May 17, 2019

Ok but not as spicy as we’d like

Scott - May 16, 2019

Not very hot. I replaced baked beans with kidney beans and pasata and added a teaspoon of chilli flakes to give it more taste.

Clohe - May 16, 2019

Another good meal, we liked how the rice was cooked in the beef stock.

Clohe - May 15, 2019

We both enjoyed this meal, we never thought to cook the rice in a beef stock.

Ruth - May 14, 2019

Not at all exciting

Davey - May 14, 2019

Nothing special about this one. Wouldn’t order again.

Natasha - May 13, 2019

A little bit bland but very quick and simple to prepare and cook
