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
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 purchased some Packit Gourmet meals in preparation for our late fall camping trip. We wanted to try something out in advance, so we chose the Tortilla Soup. My wife and I both loved it. The broth was great, and the rice was perfectly cooked as were the vegetables. The lime crystals were a big hit with both of us, and I am a big hot sauce fan so I welcomed the the packet of Cholula. We will purchase more of this for the trip. Thank you Packit Gourmet!
I won this meal at a camping event. Best trail meal ever. Better than anything I've ever bought or made. I used all the packets and it was delicious!
I concur with the other reviews, this a truly a great soup/meal. This one reconstituted very well, nothing crunchy. I omitted the hot sauce.
I never write reviews, however, I am now after trying many of the P.G. meals. The Austintacious Tortilla Soup is GREAT! I don't think I ever had Tortilla soup prior to trying this one, but have a hard time believing there's a better one out there. You will not be disappointed!
PERFECT! My boyfriend considers himself to be a Tortilla Soup Expert . . .and he really loved this soup. It was just what we needed after a long rainy and chilly day of hiking at Glacier National Park.
this was some of the best soup I have had. I can see myself sitting out in the woods on a cold night and having this hot Austintacious Tortilla Soup.
This was my favorite dish. This one I cooked using the optional Cook-in-Bag method by simply boiling water with my alcohol stove. I decided to have it for lunch because the day was overcast and a bit chilly. Soup just sounded good and warming. Preparation: I really like these types of dishes where all I have to do is boil water, pour it in and let it sit. I brought my insulated coozy that I slid the Cook-in-Bag inside while it rehydrated. It really helped hold in the heat. I let it sit for an additional 5 minutes and the beans were perfect. Taste: Very flavorful, spicy southwestern soup and the chips, cheese and sprinkle of lime just made it marvelous. Originally posted on BackpackGearTest http://www.backpackgeartest.org
4+ Stars Three of us rated this (two 5's and one 4) VERY highly. Added all of the condiments, but with only half of the lime packet and it was magnificent. I'm not usually a soup guy when backpacking, but my goodness this was tasty. As with all backpacking food, allow it to rehydrate for a minimum of 20 minutes (longer if you can stand it) in a cozy so it stays HOT and it'll turn out just right.
So good. So Very Good! I very much need buy more. One of the best meals from here I've had if not the best.
just add water
