  • I searched 5 kinds of canned peppers at the supermarket and found a convenient option.

  • The meatless version of Amy was pretty good, Campbell’s Thick Chili Mac It was my favorite.

  • Still, none of these canned versions had candles on homemade chili peppers.

The Hormel take had what I thought was a classic canned chili flavor.

Speaking of canned chili peppers, I think of Hormel, so I first tried it as a control.

I followed the can’s instructions to heat the peppers in a microwave safe bowl for 2-3 minutes and stir in the middle.

Hormel pepper It was the most positive.

Most of the bites were beans. Besides, the taste was very mild and I couldn’t pick up much spices.

Wolf brand peppers had a smoother consistency and more spices.

Only this pepper had no convenient pull tab, so I had to take out the can opener.

Two minutes later, I took it out of the microwave and noticed that there was a skin on the pepper. Fortunately, mixing doesn’t seem to affect the texture or flavor.

I got More spices from Wolf brandTake it, but there is no fever. The main taste was spices, with chili and beans adding a bit of texture, but not much flavor.

This option was much smoother than the Hormel option. It goes well with cheese and the chili dip was delicious.

I didn’t notice that Amy’s peppers didn’t contain meat.

this Meatless take The chili peppers contain a little tofu, but it’s very convincing because I didn’t realize I was a vegetarian until I read the can later.

It was the best looking pepper in a bunch and was thin and consistent to pour. Heated in the microwave for 2 minutes.

I was able to smell and taste the peppers, so the peppers had a wonderfully bright profile. The taste and texture were light and I enjoyed it too.

The Amy’s The take tasted more homemade. Although it is labeled as medium chili, it is not too spicy, but not too spicy.

Campbell’s Chunky Chili Mac was amazingly good.

Faced with limited supermarket options, I decided to include this chili mac in my mix.

Like Amy’s chili, this Campbell’s thick Meals could be poured and easily transferred to a safe bowl in the microwave. Heated for two and a half minutes.

This pepper tasted better than it looked.

Macaroni provided a surprisingly nice texture.Soft, unlike some other options that had a positive taste of beans Pasta made for a light bite There is less need to chew.

The tomato flavor was also noticeable in the first chili pepper I tasted.

It wasn’t gourmet by any means, but the canned chili peppers were fairly decent and had a mellow taste.

Campbell’s Well Yes Veggie Chile is a surefire choice on the go.

This soup comes in a microwave-friendly bowl and is convenient to carry on the go.

I heated it for 1 minute and 15 seconds and stirred it before digging. The plastic lid was a bit difficult to remove without touching the edges of the hot metal or spilling the pepper.

this Chili con carne for vegetarians The thinnest in the bunch, it reminded me more minestrone.. It was nice to see the vegetables, but I was not good at chili peppers.

It was the hardest thing I’ve tried, but it wasn’t overwhelmingly.

Compared to the rich flavor of homemade chili, there were no options for these cans, but some were decent tasting.

If you are an avid Chilean fan, chances are Canned varieties will not impress you.. As seen in this taste test, these options generally sacrifice flavor and texture for convenience.

but Amy’s Organic Chile It tasted great and bright and looked the best in the bunch so I kept going back Campbell’s Thick Chili Mac..

know Pasta is not a traditional ingredient With chili, but let’s face it: none of these canned versions had candles in their homemade ones.

For meals that can be cooked in the microwave, the chili mac was pretty good. That’s what I really want to eat again.
