I brought two of these meals on a backpacking trip, based on all the great reviews, and couldn't even manage to get them down. The first packet was so bland I thought maybe we had gotten a bad one, but the second tasted the same. I ended up taking a couple bites and leaving the rest for the animals. It needs salt, pepper, hot sauce, and a whole slew of other spices. If you are looking for a bland rice-based meal then this is your thing. If you want something more interesting try the Chicken Vindaloo, Mountain House's Chili Mac with Beef, or Mary Jane's Chilimac or Santa Fe Pasta.
This meal was very good. Some backpacking food either tastes too bland, or is very salty. This is neither. Good flavor and a mix of vegetables make this a "repeat meal" for me.
I need gluten free, dairy free, and egg free meals and these fit the bill...deliciously!! I have used them o short and long 3 wk plus hikes and they are always great! The company says these are spicy... only mildly so unless you are ultra sensitive. The 2 potion size abt. 600 cal is just right for a BIG evening meal, eaten a bit early perhaps that will stoke your fire all night and not fail to satisfy... they are an A+ in my book!
Rather than write a small review for each individual item I recently purchased I thought I would share it all in one concise review. (Note with most Mountain House I add 2-3 oz less than it recommends)

between this and the chili mac, I'd be set for months! Could use a bit extra spice, but it has still got a great flavor! Says 2 servings, but if there are two hungry people, you might want one pack each.
Either i got a bad batch, or all the other reviews are wack. I bought this based on earlier reviews and was totally disappointed. I found it bland and ended up tossing more than half of it out, opting to chew on a piece of cardboard instead(which tasted great by comparison)
Its in my Top 5 dehydrated foods for me. Safe bet.
Awesome, even my 10 yr old loved it.
This reminds me of my dads amazing gumbo. Great stuff and easy to make. What else can you want
If you are really hungry this will suffice; it has really good spicy flavor...i had it when it was really cold, it even makes you sweat a little and get some extra heat going. :-p
So far this one is my absolute favorite. Wonderfully spicy and very filling...definitely enough for two.
All jokes aside, this is good stuff. Well spiced and prepares well.
Ok this meal packs a punch and is awesome. The two serving is for one hungry hiker....Add this to your list. Oh and bring a small bottle of Tabasco sauce.
I ate this as my very first backcountry meal and found it to be the best one I selected. Best when it is a little cold and windy outside! Very warming, just spicy enough, and very filling. YUMMY
This is a great meal. It is very spicy and very good.
For a dehydrated take on cajun food this was pretty good, complete with dehydrated okra.
