Express Hearty Chili = Success!

I was rather hungry last night, but didn’t really feel up to cooking. I thought it might be a good time to try one of the pouches of THRIVE’s new Express line of products: pre-prepared products, just add water. Normally I’m not big on that kind of stuff, but I figured it’s hard to go wrong with chili. THRIVE Express Hearty Chili with Beans So, I put four waters of cup edit: four cups of water (I can’t believe I published it with that backwards! four waters of cup, sheesh!) in a saucepan and added the pouch contents (minus the oxygen absorber of course!) Stirred it up and followed the directions to let it boil, then simmer for 20-25 minutes. It was still a bit more liquid than I normally like, but after letting it sit for a few minutes (as per directions, duh!) it firmed up a bit and I ladled it into a bowl. I hadn’t reconstituted any cheese, so I thought why not just sprinkle some of the freeze-dried cheddar on top? It had a nice crunch and added texture. Freeze-dried Cheddar CheeseI started eating quite enthusiastically after the first bite. It was really tasty! Then I remembered I should probably take a picture for my blog. This blogging thing is terribly complicated at times. 😉 2014-07-04 22.25.00 Yes. I’m eating at my laptop. Mea culpa. What do you think about eating freeze-dried cheese without reconstituting it? I think it tastes like scrumptious cheese crips!!! I have to stop myself from eating it by the spoonful out of the can!
