Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ravens do not enjoy it Left a cache of gear & "well-hidden" food on my last climb. Returning 3 hrs later, ravens had torn everything apart, found the food, and made quick work of 3 Mountainhouses. The AA chili had been opened, but was otherwise untouched. Lesson: If you are thinking of bringing dehydrated space food to feed Ravens, know that they do not find AlpineAire Mountain Chili appetizing. Incidentally, I ate another bag and found it to be palatable, on par with other brands. It has sort of a chipotle smoked chili flavor that some find off-putting, and is improved with some doctoring from my spice kit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome vegetarian meal!! This was our favorite meal out of our 6 day backpacking trip. My husband eats meat and even he loved it. It is super filling, flavorful, and pretty spicy. After eating it we thought it would be good over noodles to make it into a chili mac. But it was delicious alone. Highly recommend and I would buy this again in a heartbeat. Nice filling vegetarian meal after a strenuous day of hiking.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Dumb packaging ok food Mixed this chili with a plastic spoon gently and it poked a whole in the package. Second time it did this. While it is cheaper than other brands, the packaging can be a problem as feels flimsy. My favorite is backpackers pantry if have the money. But this chili wasn't too bad. Needed pepper though.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Tastes fine, but not filling for 2 people We had this two times and this just did not fill two people after a day of hiking/ backpacking. Would work with instant rice added perhaps?
