delicious

These are tasty. AlpineAire has sold these in a "Lower Sodium" version as well, don't know if the entire version is now reformulated, or if that is a separate version.

In any case, the chili spices are wonderful and well-balanced. The "lower sodium" one tastes like it should have just a touch more salt to me. Makes the TVP or whatever soy they use very palatable, along with the freeze dried beans and corn. The chili is especially nice with a little bit of tabasco or some BBQ sauce. The TVP is cut into small gravelly pieces about 1/2 the size of a grain of wheat, so you really get a good "ground meat" texture in the chili.

I eat this once every few weeks (I have some extra packets at work for emergency food), and I never mind eating it.

My only slight gripe is that it's difficult to portion out 2 meals from the reusable bag. The dry beans/corn/TVP tend to settle out towards the top, so if even if you shake it to recombine and pour it into 2 separate containers, your first portion what the bigger chunks of beans/corn/etc. and the 2nd portion has all the chili spices and salt. This is not a problem if you make 2 servings in the same bag. However, I'm a big guy, over 6'5" + 220lbs and there's no way I can eat a whole bag, it's a LOT of food. I tried once, but I couldn't finish it.

I've had the AlpineAire chicken gumbo as well, also very good.

If you like your chili to be the con carne variety, however, you might want to try something else, like the Alpine Air Tamale Pie with Beef, as the omission of meat is notable to the palate.
That said, this meal has a nice level of spice and heat (though some might want to add more heat) and is rather tasty, if you don't mind the absence of beef.

All the freeze dried food producers make a chili meal but to me, this is the tastiest of the vegetarian entries. Great as a base for adding other ingredients like additional spices & meat if you're so inclined.

I really enjoyed this one. Lots of flavor, nice and filling. I added some spices of my own based on the earlier reviews (a dash of cayenne and chili powder) and they gave it a nice kick.

My friend and I shared this as our main course on our final night in the Smoky Mountains and it was a warm, satisfying treat well deserved on that cold, rainy night. Delicious!

Tons of flavor

I purchased this meal mostly because my daughter is glutin free and I wanted something with more bold taste.

Neutral Reviews:

This does not have enough spice or meat. It was mostly red beans, which is okay, but I wouldn't call it chili.
