Slow-cooked British beef with fruity ancho and smoky chipotle chillies, red peppers and kidney beans in a warmly-spiced tomato sauce. With long grain rice.
A One-Pot Family Favourite
Chilli con Carne is that classic one-pot dish. With smoky beef, soft beans and a gentle chilli heat, this meal is warming in even the coldest of climates. We cook our beef slowly, adding paprika, cumin and sweet tomatoes to provide some serious depth of flavour. With crunchy red pepper, nutty red kidney beans and a subtle spice hit from ancho and chipotle chilli, our one-pot wonder tastes just the way we need it to after a long hike. A South American classic from a barn in Dorset - made for your next adventure.
Shelf life is one year from manufacture with the compostable packaging.

These compostable bags are made from bio-based sources, including sugar cane, which means they are fully compostable and should disintegrate within a year in compost faster if the levels of warmth, moisture and air exposure are right.
Disposing of the packets
To dispose of your pouches in an environmentally-friendly way, we recommend that you either:
Place them in compost
Our pouches are certified for home and industrial compost, and meet food regulation requirements in Europe and the USA*. The ideal conditions for compost include warm temperatures and exposure to air. The composted materials can then be used as fertiliser. Possibly the first plastic free camping and expedition food in pouches.
Throw them away in household waste
Not everyone has access to compost facilities. While throwing your compostable pouch into common household waste means it will end up in landfill, it will still compost down to nothing in less than a year. This is compared to plastic which can take over 500 years to do the same.
Please note: Do not put these packets in your recycling bin, as they are compostable not recyclable. Please also do not leave them outdoors, as they still take a while to break down to nothing.
