Trader Joe's Beef Chili With Beans
I suppose I eat canned chili about once a month on average. It's always when I'm feeling lazy or in a hurry. The ability to dump it in a bowl and be eating it after three minutes in the microwave is the main appeal. I've never found any varieties of it that I love, but some go down unobjectionably, even pleasantly. Others, not so much.
I'm afraid that TJ's offering goes in the "not so much" category. It's too spicy, and too loaded up with chunks of onion and pepper. (Yes, I voluntarily ate something knowing it had onion in it. I almost died, but not quite.) It wasn't awful, just not to my taste.
Will I buy it again?
No. There are too many competing products that I like a lot better.
