Casa Verde is exactly what I've been looking for all this time!
I have been searching high and low for prepared foods that I can bring to work that meet my three must-have criteria: They must be affordable, they must be healthy, and they must be FLAVORFUL. I bought three flavors from Casa Verde on a whim when I saw them on sale at Safeway and I am thrilled to say I finally found a product that actually meets my needs. I can keep some pouches in my office for an easy lunch, the flavors are all plant-based and very bean forward so I know I'm getting a good dose of nutrients, and most importantly (and most elusively), they are DELICIOUS!!!
I am from Arizona, so I have outstanding Latin food on a regular basis and am left unimpressed with many brands' attempts to capture the flavors and textures of the food I love. Not these! The flavors are complex and robust, the kind of thing that makes you double check that all that /sabor/ really is plant based. The spice level is perfect--just enough heat to make your tongue tingle. The salt level tastes low, which I like because you can always add more, but if something's too salty you can't take any away. And I love how the color of the food actually matches what's in the picture. It is bright and vibrant, unlike any of the many other pouch-based meals I've tried. I got two bites into the pozole and came on here to order the variety 8-pack. So grateful to finally have an easy option for a healthy lunch!
