Part 1 of dinners with HelloFresh
It’s Mexican night at my house! On the menu we have beef and cheddar soft shell tacos with Mexican slaw.
This is my first experience cooking with a HelloFresh meal kit, which provides all the required ingredients as well as a super easy to follow recipe card.
You can check out the original recipe here. The entire meal was made from the supplied ingredients, the only things I needed to provide myself was olive oil, salt and pepper. Too easy!
It was really quick to prepare, which is great when trying to whip up dinner while juggling a baby at the same time! Tossed together the Mexican slaw, fried up the fragrant mince, warmed up the mini tortillas and dinner was ready
In the end, we were able to make a total of 8 mini wraps, so this did well in being a dinner for 2 people. The only thing leftover by the end was some of the slaw, everything else was devoured! We tend to have pretty big dinner appetites so no surprise there.
For my first impression of HelloFresh meals, I think it went quite well! I love how everything is already portioned out for you, and that the meals themselves are well balanced and healthy.
Cooking difficulty = super easy
Quantity = too much slaw, not enough beef, perfect amount of cheese
My overall rating: 7/10 (not normally the biggest fan of Mexican food for dinner, but this was filling, tasty and healthy!)
Husband’s rating: 5/10 (not enough meat/nutrition, more suitable for lunch or a smaller meal)
Will it be on the menu again? Yes! But probably as a lunch rather than a dinner.
