Expedition Foods’ delicious light-weight meals provide the perfect nutrition for a wide range of outdoor pursuits. Freeze-drying food is the most successful method of preservation, making it taste better, look better, weigh less and last longer.

Expedition Foods says:

Beef, red kidney beans and onions in a chilli tomato sauce with rice.

Preparation: Remove the oxygen absorber (Sachet) from inside the pouch.(The oxygen absorber helps maintain product freshness and is non toxic). Slowly add up to 410ml hot water, stirring as you pour and then close the bag. Wait 5-8 minutes for the food to rehydrate.

Cold water will suffice in an emergency, however the re-hydration time is much longer

6.5 STAFF'S TASTE TEST - This Chilli is surprisingly spicy! If you love spicy food this is a great option however, if not, it's probably best to stay clear. Everyone thought that the texture and flavours were good and the inclusion of full kidney beans went down well too. The score was divided by our staff between the spice lovers and those who thought that this was too hot so it's worth bearing that in mind.


Rice (30.6%), Canned Tomato (Tomato, Tomato Juice, Citric Acid (Acidity Regulator)), Onions, Red Kidney Beans (12.2%), Tomato Purée, Minced Beef (8.1%), Vegetable Oil (Rapeseed), Sugar, Garlic, Chilli Powder, Rosemary.

Tasty, flavoursome and spicy enough.

I really enjoyed this meal at the end of the day after a long trek in the rain. Re-hydrates well but I like to add a bit more water after the initial 5 mins and let it stand some more in the pouch cosy to keep it hot. Felt satisfied that I had had a good hot meal. Don't expect Michelin star restaurant quality, it's just top end instant food. Only gripe is the price, couldn't afford to buy these on any old regular overnight hike.
