So I got my package earlier today and decided I would make the chili. The recipe came with everything I needed for it: shredded cheddar and sour cream to top off the chili once it was cooked, ground beef, beef broth, diced tomatoes, beans, Mexican seasonings, garlic cloves, poblano pepper, and scallions. It also came with detailed instructions on how to cook the meal. It took less than 30 minutes to cook. I made some rice and veggies as a side dish. It was very filling but I was so hungry today that I had a second helping. It would definitely feed myself and both of my teenagers. I still have a heaping helping leftover for tomorrow. Wednesday I think I will have the balsamic fig chicken recipe I was sent.

You should make some chili one day. You can make it mild or spicy. I like spicy.

Yeah I've tried a total of 4 boxes. If I had more money available, I'd buy at least a box per month

@DesirousDreamer if you ever have a spare $30 let me know and I can message you a code for $40 off your first box. You can cancel the subscription the second they message you that the box has been shipped

I have a $20 credit right now, so I'll be ordering my son a box for his birthday. It'll be $49 instead of $69. However, if we go to a restaurant and spend $20 per plate, that's $120 for 6 plates and since my daughter and I don't eat as much as we used to, we can share the recipes between the 3 of us. It's a treat though. I definitely can't spend that all the time.

@acrogodess Where do you go that you spend twenty dollars per plate.

@thislittlepennyearns any restaurant that I purchase a plate with steak or seafood. A plate with steak, potatoes and broccoli tends to run at $15.99 to $19.99 depending on the size of the steak. A surf and turf plate would be anywhere from $17.99 to $24.99.

So do you have an extra bowl and spoon for me to come over and indulge ??? Hee hee I don't make the beef n bean red sauce chili much anymore since learning momma has an intolerance digestively to the abundant proteins (biologically those are known as lectins) in the tomato

I certainly can squeeze an extra person into these meals if I make some side items lol Alexander, my son, used to have bad eczema and his doctor wanted him to avoid tomatoes and other food items. He decided he'd rather itch than avoid his favorite foods ((oh dear)). Thankfully he was able to outgrow his food sensitivities

@acrogodess good to hear he outgrew the sensitivities to certain enzymes in foods; however you might know I am a stickler for eating according to blood type and there is a real difference between sensitivities and actual allergies

@enlightenedpsych2 I've never looked into eating for a certain blood type. I need to ask what my blood type and the kids are. Sadly, I don't know.

Yes, I love some chili especially during fall weather. The only thing that would have made it better was some corn bread

I do enjoy it. My 16 yr old son has already asked me to purchase him a box for his birthday next year. He's quite the foodie.

If I could be nosy and ask... how much does each meal from this company cost?
• Aberdeen, North Carolina
24 Oct
The box that I purchased is normally $69 per box for the ingredients and recipes for 3 meals for 2 to 3 people. Except for the chili, most of the meals are what I consider restaurant quality meals (that I wouldn't normally prepare) which would normally cost about $15-25 per plate at a restaurant. So it is good for an occasional treat in my opinion.

@Genipher I agree. I figure if I'm going to splurge on the family, better to get a box with 3 meals per person than one restaurant trip with 1 meal per person lol

saw this post on a side bar and wanted to check it out. that looks good and makes me want to give it a try. you did a good job explaining it all. only one more question, do they put the meat in too or you supply that yourself?
• Aberdeen, North Carolina

They put the meat in. They send it packed in insulated bags and dried ice

I want to try HelloFresh, but it doesn't have a package big enough for my whole family. That chili looks really good.
• Aberdeen, North Carolina

Yeah, unfortunately they only have servings up to a family of 4. This is from the classic box: 3 meals for a family of 2 to 3 people.

@acrogodess Yea we have a family of 5. All of the males are big eaters too.

a friend tried to get me to join Hello fresh, we went around and around this, I can shop for less and make meals I want. She prefers Hello fresh Our family is too picky for most of the meals. I usually prep for my meals the day before, so it works for me. The chili does look good.

Oh we don't get it for an every day thing. We get it once in a blue to try something we wouldn't normally eat. Most of the time, it is something we'd see at a restaurant for about $20 a plate so since the 3 of us eat from the box, it ends up being a treat. I generally only get a box when I have a promo for it. I've never paid full price for the box.

That sounds like a unique system. Do they send you the whole box and tell you how to cook it?
• Aberdeen, North Carolina
24 Oct
The box depends on what you order. I order the classic box and it comes with 3 full recipes and the ingredients needed for the entrees. It feeds between 2 to 3 people for $69 per box.
