Mountain House Mexican Style Rice and Chicken

rated 3 of 5 stars This Mountain House entrée offers the backcountry backpacker convenience and calories in 8-9 minutes—just add water for a ready-made meal—but its seasoning lacks zest or kick and its significant rice content will make big appetites yearn for more a few hours after eating. Note: This is a review of the Mountain House Mexican Style Rice & Chicken, a 5.5 oz/153g meal that comes in a blue plastic and foil pouch familiar to many campers and backpackers.

Mountain House Mexican Style Rice and Chicken

rated 3 of 5 stars This is a good backpacker's freeze-dried meal — not wonderful, but not bad either. Ah, Mountain House. Brand of bland. Or, if not actually bland, then usually very average apart from a tendency towards over-salted. This, its Mexican Style Rice and Chicken, does not disappoint.  It is not wonderful. It is very average.  But that just means that it satisfies — it quickly and conveniently fills a backpacker's stomach. It was not as salty as many of MH's offerings, was decently spicy, and had… Full review

AlpineAire Foods Southwestern Style Masa with Beef

rated 2 of 5 stars Wow. Spicy. This is a pleasant diversion from the standard freeze-dried backpackers fare, at least in terms of texture. Masa being a corn meal product, it is obviously not a rice-based or pasta dish, and variety on a long trip can be very important. Beef and beans rehydrated well in the listed time. However, there seemed a little too much liquid left over at the end of even an extra "cooking" period. And the level of spice. Wow. Neither my partner nor I could really taste anything other than the… Full review

AlpineAire Foods Key Lime Chicken

rated 3 of 5 stars A decent freeze-dried meal — perhaps not wholly satisfying, but it makes a nice change. One doesn't expect a flavor explosion from a citrus-based chicken and rice dish, and so this does not surprise.  However, there are those days when, after so many faux-mexi meals, a hiker just wants something mild, and a little different. That is what this meal is for.  The key lime flavor is good, but not overwhelming, and the chicken rehydrated sufficiently. The rice, as is usual with freeze-dried rice… Full review

AlpineAire Foods Mesquite BBQ Seasoned Chicken with Beans & Rice

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Too salty and acidic. This product has good amount of meat and rice for a meal for a hungry man or couple of not-so-hungry people. But, it is too salty and too acidic so consuming it is a torture. I had to finish it anyway to have enough energy for an intense hike however it back-lashed with unusual thirst. Color of the product is questionable — bright brown-red, does not look natural, though the product does not pretend to be natural. Full review

Mountain House Chicken Teriyaki with Rice

rated 3 of 5 stars This was not a very tasty entrée. I've had much better. I wouldn't recommend this product. The seasoning did not mix well. This resulted in clumps of seasoning and a very poor taste. I wouldn't have guessed it was 'teriyaki' in a blind taste test, I just would have guessed it was chicken and sauce. The portion was good. It was filling and thick and hearty. I won't be buying this one again. I've had other freeze dried meals that tasted good, so this one won't make it back into my menu. Full review

Backpacker's Pantry Pad See You with Chicken

rated 5 of 5 stars For a dehydrated meal, this is one of the best ones I have had. I took my girlfriend backpacking for the first time and warned her about dehydrated food. The Pad See You with Chicken was the first meal we ate, and she was very pleasantly surprised by how good it was.  She was a little disappointed by the rest of the meals after we ate the best one first.   This meal is also gluten free, which is good for us, because she is on a gluten free diet.   The Pad See You with Chicken was by far the best… Full review

Mountain House Beef Stroganoff

rated 4 of 5 stars I admit to having limited experience with backpacking type foods, but I purchased this product and one of a different brand and was amazed at the difference in the two. Mountain House (MH) was by far a better product in both taste and appearance. This product would easily be a satisfying meal on the trail or in the bunker and I would recommend MH as the go to for anyone who loves Beef Stroganoff. I purchased this product and one of a different brand and was amazed at the difference in the two. The… Full review

Good To-Go Herbed Mushroom Risotto

rated 4 of 5 stars This is a fresh, healthy, and tasty alternative to the every growing line of pre-packaged backpacker meals. While the recommended re-hydration period is quite a bit longer than other similar products, my sample of the Risotto did not take as long to re-hydrate as the other two meals. I would highly recommend this product for those looking specifically for an all-natural, vegetarian, gluten-free option. A note: I’ve included some of the same commentary for all three Good To Go reviews: Smoked… Full review
