Who doesn’t enjoy a hearty bowl of chilli? Chilli is a great comfort food when the weather starts to cool down or at any time of the year when you need a good, wholesome meal to serve the family. But when there is not enough time to whip up a tasty, homemade pan of chilli, it is sometimes necessary to turn to pre-packaged varieties of chilli. What is Nalley® Thick Chilli Con Carne with Beans like?
My husband and I both love chilli. He will eat his as fiery hot as he can take it, while I have a more delicate palate. At the slightest taste of heat I am gulping down a glass of water to put out the burning sensation in my mouth. When my husband purchased a 425g can of Nalley® Thick Chilli Con Carne with Beans I did not initially have any. However, I was stuck for ideas on what to serve alongside my baked potato on one occasion, which is when my husband suggested I taste his leftover Nalley® Thick Chilli Con Carne with Beans.
Each 255g serving size of Nalley® Thick Chilli Con Carne with Beans contains 270 calories, 70 of which are from fat, 3g saturated fat, 30mg cholesterol, 1050mg sodium, 33g carbohydrate, 10g dietary fibre, 3g sugar, and 17g protein. This product is high in saturated fat, and incredibly high in sodium, which is why this would not be a suitable product for those with high blood pressure.
Nalley® Thick Chilli Con Carne with Beans is what it states to be, “thick chilli.” As soon as I had reheated it, I had to spoon it onto my plate in a big, thick mass. I was not sure if I would like it, especially as my husband had stated he had added hot sauce and black pepper to the leftovers before putting them away. However, I was pleasantly surprised and found that the chilli was not more than my palate could handle. In fact, I found it a delightful addition to my baked potato. I was just not so happy with the saltiness of the meal.
Nalley® Thick Chilli Con Carne with Beans was a quick fix when I needed it, but I will probably stick with making my own chilli, as I found Nalley® Thick Chilli Con Carne with Beans high in fat and sodium.
