What I love about this meal so much other than the chili is just fantastic, is that it comes with some toppings, so you get some corn chips, some sprinkle cheese and some TX Pete Hot Sauce.
It really is nice just to have so much flavor on trail, and then to be able to add those toppings and stuff … I think this one is the closest meal I’ve had to like a real meal in town, but while backpacking.

The bane of some camping food: lack of texture. The bane of most: lack of flavor. This stewy meal ups the ante on both. The base is a meaty, tomato-based broth packed with as much flavor as the Lone Star State itself. But the proverbial icing on the cake? Included toppings of crushed Frito-style corn chips, shredded cheese and a packet of Texas Pete Hot Sauce that will warm your insides on a cold night.

frequently asked questions
We recommend that all of our hot meals spend time "steep-cooking™" while snuggled in a Cook-in-Cozy™. We find this method promotes a more consistent temperature and steady cook time for Cook-in-Bag™ preparation; and results in a better serving temperature for your meal. When not in use, our Cook-in-Cozy™ folds away nicely in your pack for storage and weighs in at only 1.4oz.
You make the best camp food there is !!
It would not be a backpacking trip without Texas State Fair Chili. My grandson's favorite!
I have had this twice. Not impressed with it. Expensive for what you get.
If you love chili, your gonna love this!
This stuff is over the top so glad I found Packit gourmet
This one is my favorite. Like all PG meals its absolutely amazing and filling. Thanks for making our paddle trips extra awesome and easy.
Loaded with beans, veges, and meat. Mildly spiced, which fits my taste on the trail. Best trail chili.
It’s very good, probably your best product. However, something called “Texas State Fair Chili” should not have beans in it, as there are traditionally no beans in Texas chili.
Maybe the best dehydrated backpacker meal Ive had. Delicious taste and the cheese/corn chips. Suge recommends bringing extra corn chips WOOOO BUDDDDYYYY! ALL SECURE IN SECTOR 7!
just add water
