Rated 3 out of 5 by from Weird texture, good flavor I generally liked the flavor of this, but the texture was a little too soup-y with the recommended amount of water. I couldn't finish it because the southwestern flavors became a little too overwhelming, but it was tasty. I'd share it and eat something else in addition in the future.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Grainy This had a very weird texture to it. I added the recommended amount of water to it and it was very grainy. Granted that is what masa is but I feel like it should have been a more fine grain. I added another couple of ounces of water to it and it was better. The flavor was pretty good and it was very filling. I wasn't hungry after 5 hours without eating anything else, which can be the case with some of these foods.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Darn tasty This meal was actually very tasty, better than most dehydrated meals. I liked how the package was very flat for ease of packing into the bear canister. I also liked the high protein content. Guess, you get what you pay for.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Gross bits of gross Well, this packet of food is just too mealy. A lot of the little bits did not rehydrate and stayed crunchy. It does not have that "hearty" feeling you are looking for out in the woods. Choose other flavors if possible.
