I like many Hormel brand food products and I am also a chili fan. When I came across a can of Hormel Chili Master Three Bean Beef Chili in the canned chili section of my local grocery store, I was interested. I decided to purchase it, try it out and write a product review all about the experience. Here is what I discovered!
One can of Hormel Chili Master Three Bean Beef Chili costs under two dollars. Each can has two servings in it. That is a fairly low food budget friendly price. This is a new product from Hormel and I do love to try new products. I discovered that this chili has kidney beans, pinto beans and pink beans in it. It also has green chiles, beef, tomato paste, tomatoes, garlic, red and green peppers and many other ingredients. That all sounded very good to me. I could not wait to taste it!
This chili is perfect for microwave cooking and that is how I chose to prepare it. I poured the contents of the can into a large microwave safe bowl, covered, heated on high for two minutes, let stand for one minute then stirred well and served. This dish smelled great and looked very good. When I tasted it, I liked it. It has a different flavor and is not like your typical bowl of chili. It has a gourmet chili taste. The beans are quite small, but they are very good. The green chiles added a special taste and were mild. A slight bite, but not overwhelming. There is a lot of beef in this chili. In large round chunks. I liked that, too. I do think that there is a bit too much liquid in this chili. It is almost soupy and if you like thick traditional chili, you might be disappointed. Overall, this chili is good and it is worth the money. I like to have it for a quick lunch with crackers. I also like to make a taco salad with this chili.
I rate Hormel Chili Master Three Bean Beef Chili three and one half stars out of five stars. I probably will buy it again. It has good points and not so good points, but it is quite tasty and filling. One serving has 220 calories in it and that is not too bad. 60 of those calories are from fat. It has 7 grams of total fat, only 3 grams of saturated fat, 0 grams of trans fat, 25 mg’s of cholesterol, 990 mg’s of sodium, iyiyi, 26 grams of total carbs, 6 grams of dietary fiber, yay, 7 grams of sugars and 13 grams of protein. It has a nice amount of iron in it. Way too much sodium, though. I do like the red and green peppers in this chili. A nice gourmet type chili touch, I must say.
I enjoyed trying Hormel Chili Master Three Bean Beef Chili and writing this product review all about it. I think it is high in quality, different and affordable. It has an intriguing flavor that stands out. For more information about this and other Hormel products, you can visit the hormel.com website. This chili is a winner, as long as you are not watching your sodium intake or mind lots of liquid in your chili.
