Review: Old El Paso - Garlic Chili Chicken Tortilla Stuffers

Old El Paso's Garlic Chili Chicken Tortilla Stuffers are a convenient meal option offering seasoned rice, chicken, pinto beans, and peppers in a microwavable pouch.

A 9.5-ounce bag costs about $3.49 or around $2.00 on sale.

This one is really convenient. It doesn't require refrigeration and is really easy to make. You just vent the bag a little and microwave it for 60 seconds and "stuff" the mixture onto a tortilla for a quick meal.
The result is pretty decent. Actually, the texture is pretty good but the flavor is a bit on the bland side. It's mostly rice and seasoning doesn't do enough for it. It's called garlic chili but there isn't too much garlic flavor and it's not really spicy either.
Some tomatoes or other veggies might have livened things up but there's just red bell peppers and they just weren't enough. I guess you can always add taco sauce.

Still, it tastes okay and it's convenient. It's not something I'd feed to guests though.

  2. Meat and "doesn't require refrigeration" always worries me for what ever reason.

  3. So, you don't eat beef jerky? I get your sentiment, but I think people are overly concerned about stuff like this.

  5. Two words canned tuna. These are based on the same pouch canning tech as the pouch tuna.

    Have a nice day,
