Backpacking requires you to travel right but you also need to have the right kinds of food to keep you going. The calorific value, the weight of the food, the use of healthier ingredients, and its taste, of course, are all important factors to consider. We have created a list of some of the best-dehydrated chili based on all the points we just mentioned. So, the next time you decide to go backpacking, you will be better prepared with the best option to carry along. Take a look at the list.
Packit Gourmet Texas State Fair Chili
It does not really come as a surprise that the best chili originates from Austin’s Packit Gourmet from Texas. After all, good chili could well be considered their birthright. The chili’s base, which has big crumbles of beef stock, chunky kidney, and ground beef as well as red beans, lends it an umami-rich and meaty flavor. But the best part about this chili is the corn chips packet for toppings, hot sauce by Texas Pete, and Monterey jack cheese. The corn chips give it a crunchy texture. The hot sauce adds a tangy flavor to the chili. It does not take more than 10 minutes to cook.
Heather’s Choice Grass-Fed Bison Chili
This chili comes close to Packit and so is a runner-up. It also has interesting and delicious flavors. The sweet potatoes give the chili its sweetness, stew meat made from Stangel Bison Ranch that is grass-fed lends a beefy flavor, and other flavors that come from cocoa powder (unsweetened) and espresso. Ready in 20 minutes, this dehydrated chili is paleo- as well as gluten–friendly.
Patagonia Organic Spicy Red Bean Chili
This one is for vegetarians. The presence of tomatoes really brings out the tangy flavor. The spiciness comes from the chipotle, and other ingredients like pinto and red beans are also present. It takes a total of 10 minutes to cook before you can gorge on it.
