Advantages tasty, cheap, easy to open
|Value for Money|
If you read some of my reviews you know that I like cooking and baking. A few days ago I cooked Chilli con Carne. I know that there are ready made cans of it but I wanted to do my own version. I went to Sainsbury’s to buy beans and meat. I hesitated between Sainsbury’s own brand and Heinz beans but finally choose Sainsbury’s.Price
The beans come in a steel can which has a ring-pull on the top. The label on the can is red and in a dark blue square it is written with white Baked Beans and with yellow in Tomato Sauce. Above this square is the Sainsbury’s logo. Below this square there is a plate with beans in tomato sauce. I have to say that it looks inviting.
The reduced sugar one looks similar but its wrapper is light blue. These Baked Beans are not from the Basics series.

My chilli con carne
I bought pre-packed beef meat that was already cut in small cubes. I spiced the meat with chilli con carne spice mix then fried it quickly on a little oil. When it became brown all over I added a little water I covered it and cooked it ready. Then I added the baked beans and cooked them for 5 minutes. I had to add some further chilli con carne spice mix to it. I served it with fresh bread and decorated the middle of the plate with a bit of sour cream.
