Stagg No Beans Chili the worst ever
Stagg Steak House No Beans Chili is the worst ever. A few chunks of "beef" lost in a sea of thin, watery sauce with a flavor that barely suggests chili.
You can't use it for chili dogs and you'd never eat a bowl of it -- so what is it good for?
The idea of "Chunky" no beans chili should never have been produced unless it is mostly meat.
The biggest laugh comes with their claim that it has "60% more beef than our chili with beans."
I was raised on Dennison and occasionally Hormel, the first time I tasted Stagg I was amazed they would bother to put something so awful in a can. It's so bad that it is hard to even doctor it up enough to be even moderately offensive.
And yes, now I usually cook my own, inauthentic as it may be.
Yeah, something happened to Stagg's...they were never great, but I'd usually get them over Dennison's or (yecch) Hormel. But I bought a few cans of their Silverado variety lately, and they were inedible.
Why, oh why, can someone not make good versions of chili in a can? (Actually, haven't been to Whole Paycheck for a while; they've probably got something, but priced so high that I'd just as soon go to a local eatery that makes it fresh.)
Canned/frozen foods are just yucky these days.
