Backpacker's Pantry Huevos Rancheros
Price Paid: $7
Tried this on a recent backpacking trip with mixed results.
Prep is a pain for those of us who don't like fussing with food and requires that you scramble the rehydrated contents in you pot or pan -- which may test your ability to find a simmer setting on your Pocket Rocket.
Looks a bit mushy when you're cooking it and it definitely benefits from rolling it into a tortilla.
It actually has pretty good flavor, but it's nothing like Huevos and has more the flavor and consistency of taco meat. I'd probably give it 5 stars if it was repackaged as taco filling.
