This meal was OK. It was filling but lacked some flavor. The veggies were good but the chicken was a bit sad.
- Tasty veggies
- Dry chicken
- Lack of flavor
I tried this meal as a member of another site in exchange for a review while at Lodgepole Overflow Campground in Lake Alpine.
This meal was very easy to make and filling. It is an excellent backpacking choice because it's lightweight and delicious. A huge benefit is that it cooks quickly with minimal equipment. All you need is boiling water, a measuring cup (key to perfectly cooked meals), and a utensil to stir and then eat the contents right out of the pouch!
This meal includes grilled chicken, rice, roasted vegetables, and black beans. This meal was actually the first one I tried. The flavor wasn’t as strong as I would want in a Mexican inspired dish.
The beans, veggies, and rice were all cooked perfectly. I particularly liked the roasted veggies as they kept a lot of the flavor you would expect from roasted vegetables. The chicken however was only OK. One larger piece was still dry and uncooked in the middle (may have been my fault, but still).
The rest generally lacked flavor. I added quite a bit of hot sauce to help this meal. I imagine adding it to a tortilla and making it a burrito could have also helped.
