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.
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!
Best chili out there! I love all the extras like corn chips & cheese for toppings.
I'm a commercial Fisherman out of Ventura California. I use my Jetboil to make this Chilli in minutes. No mess to clean up. It's simply Damn Good Chilli! Don't tell my wife or I'll be having for dinner at home... all the time.
This Chili is so close to fresh the difference is negligible. I was afraid to write a review for fear thousand of buyers will cause the product to go out of stock. Here's hoping PackitGourmet is not overwhelmed with orders. Compliments to the Chef is an understatement for a freeze dried product :)
Just placed my 3rd order for this chilli. It's a new tradition on our hiking and rafting trips to have chilli and margaritas! We are hooked :)
Unbelievable taste. I was not expecting much flavor but was happy. Cheese and hot sauce really gave it a kick
This is the best trail meal I have ever had so far. I could not believe how good it was. I never have too high of expectations for dehydrated trail meals but this one truly shocked me. I ordered several other meals from pack it gourmet but didn’t get a chance to try them because of injury on trail so looking forward to getting back on trail and trying my other packit gourmets on the trail.
just add water
