Hello Fresh Review - Meal One
I am a person who loves to try new recipes and cook all the time, so when a friend offered me a free box from Hello Fresh, I figured I would jump on it because I have heard great things. I had my friend send me the email and went to the website to claim my free box. I chose to receive three meals for two people and I made sure Mom was with me when I selected the meals because she is a very picky eater. The meals are delivered on Saturdays and I figured this would be the best day to try out our first meal!
The box arrived about 4 pm and I went ahead and unpacked the box to see what it was all about. I was pretty shocked when I opened the box and each meal has its own bag and all of the meat was at the bottom of the box with two large ice packs. I made sure to pick out the meal we were going to have for dinner and put the rest of the items in the fridge and freezer.
The bags of meals and meat
For tonights dinner we selected the Pork Carnitas Tacos with Pickled Onion and Monterey Jack Cheese. I didn't know what to expect when I opened the bag for the tacos, but I was truly surprised when the bag had every ingredient needed to prepare the meal. Each box comes with a card for each meal you selected which will show you what ingredients are included, a photo of the final product and the instructions on the back. This recipe was really easy to make, the instructions have you cut up your veggies first, pickle the onions, cook your pork, cook the veggies, season the pork and veggies, make the chipotle cream and they even tell you how to heat up your tortillas! To be perfectly honest with you, it took me 30 minutes to make the meal and it was the most delicious tacos I've ever made! I overdid it on the chipotle cream, but these tacos were amazing!
