So very bland

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.
