This Trader Joe’s beef chili with beans is not a bad option for an easy meal. It has a slight jalapeno kick to it, with a pleasant sweet tomato flavor. You can also buy turkey chili or chili with no beans, but if you love beef and beans, this is a good option. Throw it in a bowl in the microwave or in a pan on the stove top and you’ll be satisfied. The chicken chili and the organic Trader Joe’s veggie chili are both good too. This is not overwhelmingly spicy but if you like beans with a bit of a kick, this can be your go to can for a simple and not entirely unhealthy meal. One bonus is the ingredients in this beef chili are a tad healthier than a lot of the national brands canned chili………….

Trader Joe’s Chili
Trader Joe’s has always had a lot of good canned meal options. Where does this rank for everyone in terms of favorite easy meals? I know that in the last few years TJs had added chilis in the refrigerated section like the angus beef chili. I do like the refrigerated options, but I kind of want to put the chili in my pantry and forget about it for awhile until just the right moment. Having it refrigerated is a good option if you know your’e going to eat in the next week or so. I feel the same way about a lot of the sauces and dressings that have similar options in the canned and bottled section and the refrigerated section. What is everyone’s favorite recipe or meal to pair this chili with?…..

I used over fries and topped with diced onions and vegan cheese so a treat for the grandchildren. My issues with Trader Joe’s organic vegetarian chili are the overabundance of sodium and fat in the product. Also why are we still using canola oil when we know it contains the controversial rapeseed oil? This is why I read labels.
This isn’t organic vegetarian chili. What the hell? And you’re concerned about fat? You don’t know what healthy is. Healthy is FAT. FAT is a necessary macronutrient without which you would DIE. I’ll tell you what isn’t a necessary macronutrient: Sugar. Carbohydrates. They are the problem in your diet…NOT fat.
