Charros Beans & Rice

rated 4 of 5 stars This VERY FILLING dinner will stuff the most hungry appetite whether on a quick overnight trip, thru-hike, or even at a long, busy day at work. Backpacker’s Pantry Mexican Charros Beans & Rice has become a game-changer for store-bought dehydrated meals: OK for vegan/vegetarian Ddets, great calories-to-weight ratio, and most of all DELICIOUS! Receiving new items from Backpacker’s Pantry for testing was a nice challenge, being that I’ve been cooking and dehydrating my meals personally for… Full review

Granola with Bananas & Milk

Mashed Potatoes & Gravy with Beef

rated 2 of 5 stars First time I had it I really liked it. The second time, not so much. The pieces of beef are small (vitamin size) and occasionally tough. You really have to stir it or some of the potatoes will remain powdered.  I have backpacked with better meals. Go with Mountain House Stroganoff. Full review

Outback Oven - 10"

rated 5 of 5 stars Excellent way to mix up those tired freeze-dried meals. I am a gear junkie, always looking for new ways to spice up my trips. So I decided to give this a go. I have added it to my go-to kitchen gear and never looked back. What I like: Easy to set up and use. Holds heat in well and great for meals for 2 to 3 people. Best if used on 3 to 5 day trips, unless you have the luxury of not worrying about pack weight (fuel). I would suggest making a few meals at home first, as it is tricky to get the timing… Full review
