Frozen Friday: Hungry-Man - Mexican Style Fiesta

For when you're in the mood for Mexican food, Hungry-Man has the over-a-pound Mexican Style Fiesta frozen dinner which features beef enchiladas topped with chili sauce and shredded cheese with seasoned rice and refried beans for sides and a cocada pudding for dessert. Retail for a single box is $3.99 while sales price tends to be around $2.50 or less.

I enjoyed the beef enchiladas; they have a nice blend of flavors between the beef, the tortillas, the red sauce, and the cheese. My favorite part of the dinner.
The rice was decent but soggy from the sauce.

As you can see in the picture the refried beans literally look like runny crap but they taste fine. I'm not a huge fan of eating refried beans unless there are chips or tostadas involved though. They're sufficiently bean-y, thick, and not too salty.
I've never heard of cocada pudding to eating this dinner but apparently it's a coconut and vanilla pudding. It was much too sweet for my liking and had a bit of almond flavor to it beyond the coconut and vanilla.

Bottom line? I'd rather Hungry-Man just substitute two or three beef enchiladas in lieu of the rice, beans, and pudding.

  1. This one's not the best, but not bad. The worst is the dessert, hungry man dessert's seem to always be terrible.

    Since I'm not really a big dessert guy though, I never seem to mind much. As the review says, bring on those enchiladas.

  2. This meal just looks scary. I'm sure I'd be brave enough to try it.



    I don't usually buy frozen dinners but if I have to I'll give this on a pass.

  3. I bought and ate this only because I was starving. There was one crumble of beef in it, no cheese, but tons of beans. Never again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
