Both my husband and myself enjoyed this dish. Not only was it very easy to prepare, all of the elements were “just right “
The trickiest one to nail ,imho, is how spicy it is in order to satisfy most people. Georgie & Tom’s got it .
While I’m not a fan of rice, the brown rice included worked perfectly, balancing the heat & adding a tad more substance. Both of us liked the baby cornbread muffins included as well; they were more flavorful than the cornbread we usually get from the local BBQ takeout.
Had this last weekend while watching football on a chilly evening. It was very satisfying and filling. Hubby loved the cornbread muffin (and he's not a fan of cornbread) - for me, it wasn't "cornbread" enough - and I love cornbread, so he got them both. But that's really a tiny complaint. It's on repeat order for us. What a fresh, flavorful take on an old standby.
Microwave only prep was easy but delicious. I air fried the small cornbread muffin. Despite not looking like a ton of rice, there is a lot of chili and this was very filling. Definitely don’t skip spritzing lime over the dish at the end; it really brightens up the whole dish without needing to add more salt!
Edit to update: after trying more dishes, this remains my favourite!
The chili was quick & satisfying, but I was expecting more cornbread flavor from the muffin. There's none.
It's still a fine meal without the cornbread so I'll definitely order again, but I'll have to get my cornbread fix elsewhere.
My husband was looking forward this as he is more of a Chili eater than I am. We both loved it! The corn, tomatoes, black beans, rice, and generous chunks of beef made for a hearty and flavorful dish. Very well balanced. The biggest surprise was the corn muffin! Soft and delicious, it was the perfect accompaniment! Perfect!
