It tastes like a legit chili. Nice flavor. The cans stack (some of the cheaper store-brand canned foods don't stack). Nearly a 2-year shelf life. Main downside: compared to other chili starters, this one is lightly seasoned. If you're just adding a few beans (maybe 2:1 tomatoes to beans), it'll be fine. If you're adding lots of beans and maybe meat, it might end up being bland.
