Chili launches in pouch packaging

Progresso creates new chili

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).
