Put this meal on the menu for any trip: It’s easy-prep trail food that will wow every palate... 
The tastiest trail soup we've ever eaten.

Sure, everything tastes better in camp. So we tried this dehydrated meal at home too, just to confirm our field findings. It is delicious. The soup is the perfect appetizer for hungry troops, a satisfying belly warmer in cold weather and substantial enough to pass for dinner when only a light meal is needed. Plus, it takes only 10 minutes to prepare. Ingredients are simple: chicken breast, red peppers, corn, tomatoes, cilantro, spices and rice. But the result is gourmet. “It tastes like it’s been simmering in the kitchen all day,” summed up one satisfied tester. Serving size is legit for two hungry guys, and it comes with toppings that make it easy to customize according to taste: freeze-dried Monterrey Jack, tortilla chips, Tabasco sauce and lime juice.

frequently asked questions

What is Gluten Conscious?
 
Gluten Conscious is a term we use to describe a product that is prepared with gluten free ingredients; however, it is not prepared in a gluten-free environment. While we are careful to avoid cross-contamination, it is possible that trace amounts of gluten may be present due to the use of gluten in our facility.
Why is a Cook–in–Cozy™ recommended?
 

We recommend that all of our hot meals spend time "steep-cooking" while snuggled in a Cook-in-Cozy. We find this method promotes a more consistent temperature and steady cook time for Cook-in-Bag preparation; and results in a better serving temperature for your meal. When not in use, our Cook-in-Cozy folds away nicely in your pack for storage and weighs in at only 1.4oz.

    I've been backpacking for 50+ years, most of them meticulously putting together my own 'gourmet' meals. After trying the Austintacious Tortilla Soup, I've kicked my homemade meal effort to the curb (as well as all of the salty, freeze-dried competitors). A Pack-It Gourmet meal is my reward at the end of a full backpacking day, and this soup is at the top of the list. So good with fresh tasting ingredients, I might even have one for dinner at home sometime!

    This meal was so delicious I would even eat it at home! I took the Austintacious Tortilla Soup with me on a 4-day backpacking & climbing trip to Como Lake in Colorado and it was the perfect meal after a long arduous hike up Como Trail. The roasted corn just topped off the wonderful flavor and the corn tortillas added a nice texture you don’t get with other freeze-dried meals. Thank you for putting so much thought into this meal.

      WOW! This Tortilla Soup is incredible, and Packit Gourmet really knows what they are doing when it comes to backpacking meals! I recently went on a backpacking trip and my Packit Gourmet meals were making everyone jealous. This soup is so flavorful and the lime salt and cholula included was amazing. The soup heated quickly and everything rehydrated well. I will absolutely be buying more of these!

      This meal was so delicious I would even eat it at home! I took the Austintacious Tortilla Soup with me on a 4-day backpacking & climbing trip to Como Lake in Colorado and it was the perfect meal after a long arduous hike up Como Trail. The roasted corn just topped off the wonderful flavor and the corn tortillas added a nice texture you don’t get with other freeze-dried meals. Thank you for putting so much thought into this meal.

    Put this meal on the menu for any trip: It’s easy-prep trail food that will wow every palate... 
    The tastiest trail soup we've ever eaten.

    Sure, everything tastes better in camp. So we tried this dehydrated meal at home too, just to confirm our field findings. It is delicious. The soup is the perfect appetizer for hungry troops, a satisfying belly warmer in cold weather and substantial enough to pass for dinner when only a light meal is needed. Plus, it takes only 10 minutes to prepare. Ingredients are simple: chicken breast, red peppers, corn, tomatoes, cilantro, spices and rice. But the result is gourmet. “It tastes like it’s been simmering in the kitchen all day,” summed up one satisfied tester. Serving size is legit for two hungry guys, and it comes with toppings that make it easy to customize according to taste: freeze-dried Monterrey Jack, tortilla chips, Tabasco sauce and lime juice.

    frequently asked questions

    What is Gluten Conscious?
     
    Gluten Conscious is a term we use to describe a product that is prepared with gluten free ingredients; however, it is not prepared in a gluten-free environment. While we are careful to avoid cross-contamination, it is possible that trace amounts of gluten may be present due to the use of gluten in our facility.
    Why is a Cook–in–Cozy™ recommended?
     

    We recommend that all of our hot meals spend time "steep-cooking" while snuggled in a Cook-in-Cozy. We find this method promotes a more consistent temperature and steady cook time for Cook-in-Bag preparation; and results in a better serving temperature for your meal. When not in use, our Cook-in-Cozy folds away nicely in your pack for storage and weighs in at only 1.4oz.

      I've been backpacking for 50+ years, most of them meticulously putting together my own 'gourmet' meals. After trying the Austintacious Tortilla Soup, I've kicked my homemade meal effort to the curb (as well as all of the salty, freeze-dried competitors). A Pack-It Gourmet meal is my reward at the end of a full backpacking day, and this soup is at the top of the list. So good with fresh tasting ingredients, I might even have one for dinner at home sometime!
