Hormel Chili Chipotle Chicken Chili Is A Satisfying Item : Product Review

Updated on November 24, 2014

A Chili Background

Chili has been one of my favorite foods for many years. While I do occasionally prepare from-scratch chili at home, more often than not, I purchase prepared chili in cans.

Like chili fans everywhere, the type of canned chili that I usually purchase is Hormel Chili. Sometimes I eat the Hormel Chili as is, straight from the can and at other times I accentuate the chili with added fresh onions, tomatoes or spices.

Sometimes when I'm eating Hormel Chili, I wonder how many cans of it are sold worldwide each day.

Instant Attraction

While shopping at ShopRite supermarket in West Hartford, Connecticut recently, I noticed a display of a type of Hormel canned chili I'd never seen before. The chili that I'm referring to is Hormel Chili Cook-Off series Chipotle Chicken Chili.

As soon as I saw the new variety of Hormel chili, I didn't hesitate in buying two cans. Since then, I have purchased another can of this chicken chili as well as a can of the new white chicken variety of chili from Hormel.

Presented here is one food lover's product review of Hormel Chili Cook-Off series Chipotle Chicken Chili.


The standard-sized can of Hormel Chili Chipotle Chicken Chili weighs 15 ounces. According to the product's nutrition facts label, the can contains about two servings.

As with most food items, the serving size of one cup is not really enough for a full serving for me. So far, I've eaten two cans of this awesome chili and each time I ate all of the chili in the can.


Although I don't remember exactly how much I paid for two cans of Hormel Chili Chipotle Chicken Chili, I think each can retailed for approximately $2. To me, the price of this product is very reasonable.

Consistency / Texture

Several pleasing textures are present in the Hormel Chili Cook-Off series Chipotle Chicken Chili. There are plenty of pieces of dark chicken meat that definitely are real pieces of chicken, not chicken by-products.

A good amount of nicely textured black beans are part of this interesting chili. The beans are slightly firm and not at all mushy.

It's nice to see the addition of corn in the Hormel Chili Cook-Off series Chipotle Chicken Chili. The firm kernels of corn provide dynamic, cooling contrast to the mild heat of the sauce.

Small pieces of tomatoes, jalapeno peppers and chipotle peppers also swim in the mildly hot gravy, or sauce.

Nutritional Facts

Hormel Chili Cook-Off series Chipotle Chicken Chili contains 240 calories with 60 calories from fat per one cup serving. This tasty chili also contains 2 grams of saturated fat, 0 grams trans fat, 7 grams total fat, 50 mg of cholesterol, 970 mg of sodium, 28 grams total carbohydrates, 7 grams of dietary fiber, 7 grams of sugars and 17 grams of protein.

Taste / Flavor

Even though I've been consistently eating regular-style Hormel Chili for many years, I'm thrilled to see that Hormel is offering new chili choices with their Cook-Off series of chilis.

There are five different varieties of chili in Hormel's Cook-Off series, but so far, the only one I've tried is the Hormel Chili Chipotle Chicken Chili.

The Hormel Chili Cook-Off series Chipotle Chicken Chili offers a distinctive and pleasant flavor that my tastebuds really enjoy.

This chipotle chicken chili possesses what I would describe as a mild degree of heat. Although the chili contains bits of jalapeno peppers, chipotle peppers and bell peppers, the level of heat and spiciness is almost subtle. A few seconds after eating a spoonful of the chili, the heat from the peppers can be felt.

The nicely spiced sauce, or gravy in the Hormel Chili Cook-Off series Chipotle Chicken Chili is a great base for the other tasty ingredients.

With each spoonful that is eaten, an interesting combination of ingredients can be tasted. This chili tastes pretty much what I wished regular-style Hormel Chili tasted like.

On a flavor scale of one through ten, I would assign this product a rating of 9.5.


Hormel Chili Cook-Off series Chipotle Chicken Chili is packaged in a metal can that is equipped with a flip-top lid. The front label on the can features a deep red background with an illustration of a pot of the enclosed in the foreground.

The rear label lists all pertinent nutrition and ingredient information, heating directions and recipe ideas.

Overall Rating

Hormel Chili Cook-Off series Chipotle Chicken Chili is definitely the best-tasting canned chili that I've eaten so far.

The whole idea of chicken in chili still seems unusual to me, but I've grown to really like it.

When I was eating some of this chili, I thought to myself that it seemed like a grown-up version of Hormel Chili.

Hormel Chili Cook-Off series Chipotle Chicken Chili is highly recommended.

5 stars for Hormel Chili Cook-Off series Chipotle Chicken Chili
