Backpacker's Pantry Tomato Chipotle Pasta With Chicken Reviews:

Positive Reviews:


This is a pretty good backpacking meal. If you read some of the other reviews you will see that you need to add just a little less water and leave it mellow for a little longer than the package suggests. Of course if you have ever cooked any dehydrated food you already know this. The flavor is spicy and leaves a nice taste in your mouth. Taking your own bread is a nice touch.

Negative Reviews:

Nice idea, poor execution

My wife and I ate this meal on our last backpacking trip looking for something a little different than the more common freeze dried meal flavors (stroganoff, pasta/red sauce, mac & cheese, etc). We liked the flavor, but that's about it. Parts didn't rehydrate properly, the chicken was pretty poor quality, and it was too soupy.

Summary: Nice idea (flavor), but poor execution.

-The taste is pretty good, and leaves a nice residual heat in your mouth

-More of a pasta soup than a pasta with sauce
-Some parts didn't rehydrate properly, celery in particular was quite crunch
-Chicken pieces are quite small and seem like trimmings rather than nice meat (compared to other meals like Mountain House)

Good thing I didn't have to eat it

Thankfully I wasn't in the middle of the wild and forced to gulp this down for calories.

The other reviews were pretty close in saying that this is more like pasta with spicy water. The chicken comes in small grains (think Nerds Candy but smaller), the sun dried tomatoes are a failure, and there are green leafy twig like scraps throughout the bag. The pasta itself is also pretty sad.

Tip: if you do need to eat some of this, dig to the very bottom where the catfood chicken nibblets are. They at least have some flavor.

It is what it is.

To be honest, I gave this flavour 1/5 because it upset my girlfriends stomach to the point of throwing up, and as for me, it was just a disgusting flavour. It wasn't good cold, and warm it was just a spicy soupy pasta.
Most of this review is personal, but none the less

Would not get again

It's hard for me to say what I didn't like about this pasta, but over a two week backpacking trip, this was one of my least favorite dinners. I would choose any of the 10-12 other dinners, which I generally liked, before purchasing this one again.
