Pretty good, if not cheap

Fantastic. Spicy in a mild way. I will eat anything when I'm hungry, but I can recognize a bad meal before it passes my uvula.

I had 2 packages of the Santa Fe Chicken meal. One I took camping and following the directions, poured 2.5 cups of boiling water into the foil package, waited 10 minutes and had the worst meal ever--some parts too chewy, the spices unmixed, some parts too crunchy. That was four years ago. Yesterday, at home, I opened my camp food box and found the other package and mindful of the first, almost tossed it out. Instead, I boiled 3 cups of water, added the meal, got the mix boiling again, covered the pot and let it simmer for 15 minutes or so. I removed the lid and voila, it looked, smelled & tasted like home cooked food. Everything was hydrated and not overcooked, the flavors mixed uniformly. If you want to cook it in camp, I say boil 4-5 cups water, add 3 cups of boiling water to the bag, and put the bag in the saucepan holding the rest of the water with the stove on to "cook" for as long as it takes.

Santa Fe chicken is just the right stuff for a mid day meal on the trail for two (lets you have all day to digest and keep you out of heartburn trouble). The shelf life is phenomenal.

I'm not sure you can get away without 1,080 milligrams of sodium with dehydrated meals, but when you're 15-20 miles out in the wilderness, you don't much care. This is a real treat.

For portions, it is correctly labeled for two servings. As a frequent solo hiker, I can't handle the quantity--way too much food for one person. And sure it costs $$ but, it's convenient.

Pretty good and spicey!

I will start by saying that I am not that picky when it comes to food, so take all this with a grain of salt. I did however find this to be a better than average freeze-dried meal. It had a lot of spice that many of them are lacking. There is good nutrition in here, but not so much that you won't eat the whole bag. On backpacking trips I usually find that eating the whole thing makes a good dinner for one.

I'd recommend this one, its up there with the chili-mac, another personal favorite.

Great Taste, Crunchy Beans & Rice

Backpacker's Pantry Santa Fe Chicken With Rice is very tasty. Especially if you enjoy Southwestern or Mexican cuisine. Our biggest complaint was that no matter how long we let it "cook" in the bag the black beans and rice were still slightly crunchy. I love these cook in the bag meals. Little mess to clean up and little trash to pack out. I'd eat it again, but might let it stand longer than the recommended time.

Our favorite backpacking meal.

This is our favorite backpacking/back-country camping/kayaking meal. It does require a longer than recommended cooktime, but it is great wrapped up in a flour tortilla. Flavorful and delicious!

BP meals

Used as part of a Boy Scout Philmont training trip and it was lightweight, easy to fix and tasted good.
