So I managed to get a pack of Austintacious Tortilla Soup from Packit Gourmet, and holy crap it was awesome! SOOOOO GOOOOOOOD. The lime they give you to add at the end really makes it amazing. I plan to order more and give their Market Pasta Puttanesca a shot. My friend loves their Gumbo and likes their Big Un Burrito as well.

But seriously, guys, give their Austintacious Tortilla Soup a shot on your next cold mountain adventure.

The Putanesca is perhaps the best trail meal I've ever had. Knowing how good their products are, I saved it for a special place in the Grand Canyon for us. It did not disappoint. We'll have to try the Tortilla Soup. We just got a dehydrator, but I don't think we'll ever come up with meals near as tasty and well developed. PG is a great company, in my opinion.

I really like the Tortilla Soup as well. The Bangers and Mash was suprisingly delicious, although it was a little more finicky on the prep. I also really like the hamburger wraps. I don't take anything to wrap-just eat it straight. Yum!

I like packits stuff too. Will be trying Bangers/mash, burger wraps and the tex mex breakfast wraps this next weekend.

Don't think I've had anything I didn't like from them yet. Although my wife did say the Broccoli bisq(sp?) wasn't all that great, it had a lot of stalks/stems in it.

The diner eggs are probably my favorite so far.

I'm also a fan of PackIt Gourmet. The preparation for some dinners can be a bit fussy, but the product is always good. After a few weeks on the trail, PackIt Gourmet tastes more like 'real food' and doesn't seem to have that freeze-dried food effect on my digestion like other freeze dried products. Big Un Burrito is my favorite. Carol
