Progresso is expanding its line to include chili this fall. You can now have 'homemade' quality chili anytime you want with new Progresso™ Chili. Offering a unique twist on classic chili flavors, Progresso takes the time out of preparing homemade chili which can take hours. Ready in 5 1/2 minutes, this is a perfect weeknight meal the family will love.

"For those consumers that desire high quality ingredients in their chili, new Progresso Chili comes in two unique flavor variations -- Smokehouse Pork and Beef Chili with Beans and Southwest Style White Chicken Chili with Beans," says Jose Garcia-Herron, Progresso marketing manager. "The new pouch packaging and clear bottom format helps maintain the freshness and flavor and allows you to see the ingredients and quality for yourself."

A spin on a homemade classic, Smokehouse Pork and Beef Chili with Beans includes Andouille sausage, beef, and a secret blend of spices, all slow-cooked with tomatoes, onions, green sweet peppers and pinto and red kidney beans. The Southwest Style White Chicken Chili with Beans is a creamy blend of all-white meat chicken, white beans, green sweet peppers, tomatillos and onions.

Progresso Chili is available nationally in the chili and soup aisle and has a suggested retail price of $4.49 per 20-ounce pouch (2 1/2 servings).
