User Review: Mountain House Chili Mac with Beef
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: ~$5
Chili Mac with Beef on a backpacking trip, it's great and fits well with meals around the fire. I'd recommend this (higher than the Beef Stroganoff...though still good) on any outing.
- Quick meal
- 3 servings?...just one for me really
- Ingredients/additives can be overwhelming
Like most Mountain House meals, prep is very easy. Though similar to the Beef Stroganoff (meat and noodles), I prefer the Chili Mac because of the flavor and it filled me up more.
All of these flash frozen, dehydrated meals have a long shelf life; most are 10 years. Because of this, if you look at the ingredient list, it can be daunting...but isn't most of what we eat nowadays quite ridiculous.
Unfortunately, the 2 or 3 servings that is labeled really wasn't that for me. I can eat most of these meals in one sitting. While it wasn't my equivalent of being 2 or 3 servings, it did fill me up for what I ate.
I usually begin a day of backpacking with colder meals/snacks like bars and finish the night with warmer meals. Helps me to unwind and keep my body working the meal while digesting, keeping me warm.
Overall, this is a tasty meal. Great for long backpacking trips as it is lightweight and flavor and prep are top notch. I'd recommend this flavor to others.
