- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Its called chicken and white bean chili. After adding water it smelled like taco pizza. Upon a taste, I think its more like a chicken tortilla soup. But who cares, really. Any of those sound great, right? Its excellent and flavorful. Hot sauce advised.
Six stars. The best of their meals!
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I'm a backcountry guide in Yosemite, and I do a lot of personal backpacking and climbing trips. Sadly, I eat a lot of these meals. I'm incredibly familiar with almost all of them.
This is easily my favorite of all their meals. I was surprised because the name makes it sound downright bland. Moderately spicy, full of flavor, but not overly seasoned. Chunks of chicken and the beans are great. If you eat a lot of dehydrated meals... do not miss this one!
PS. Its a little complex and heavy for high altitude. Above 11,000 or 12,000 feet this meal can sit in your gut for a while.
PPS. Dear Mountain House, please never stop making this one.
