This flavor-packed, gluten-conscious dish made our tasters very happy campers. With a mix of chicken, black beans, brown rice, roasted corn, jack and cheddar cheeses and savory Southwest spices, it makes a perfect filling for trail burritos, tacos or pitas (BYO bread). Each 9-ounce serving provides a well-rounded amount of calories, carbs and protein, with an extra boost of potassium.

Packit Gourmet makes an insane variety of foods, from cold-water-prep lunches to sharable appetizers (trailside queso, anyone?). It has some inventive dinner options, but we like the Big’Un Burrito with Fajita Chicken because it’s laden with chicken, black beans, and rice and cooks in the bag. Bring your own tortillas and you’ve got a burrito to go. There’s even a sachet of Cholula hot sauce in the package.

This was one of the first entrees we tested on our annual Editors' Choice trip, and it set the bar - high. Stuffed with black beans, brown rice, veggies and cheese, "the Big'un is filling and tastes like something you'd make fresh at home," one tester says.

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.
Great meal after a long hike.
Didn’t bother to read that it doesn’t come with tortillas. Was good without.
Always a favorite! After the first bite, facial expressions followed by "wow ..." say it all!
Absolutely delicious! I couldn’t stop eating!
This was my first time trying this company. This is now my new favorite meal hands down. I brought tortillas and my favorite taco sauce; and everyone at camp was thoroughly impressed with the taste. I divided the package contents into two ziploc bags to eat over two days. I added a little cumin, pepper and seasoning salt to give it a taco flavor. It was perfect for the amount of food I eat. I made 4 decent size tacos. This will be my go to backpacking meal.
Phenomenal meal — I can’t wait to enjoy it again on my next hiking adventure
Love it. Like a burrito bowl. I crushed up some doritos to throw in there too.
I bought this to see how I liked it before heading out on the trail and all I can say is “Wow”. This is about as of a high quality meal you can get for backpacking. The added cholula packet is also a great touch. They even included a handwritten note on the receipt.
